Sofia the First Royal Tea Party

A year later, but I finally have my own webpage and blog.  I get so many questions and comments about this party that I am excited to finally blog about it.  It’s been featured on Hostess with the Mostess, Catch my Party, Sweetly Chic Events, and it’s all over Pinterest boards including Disney Junior’s Party Ideas.

post 01         post09 My daughter, Alyssa, was obsessed with Sofia the First as soon as it came out.  So last year for her Fourth birthday we decided on a Sofia the First theme and incorporated her favorite activities from the show, such as learning how to pour the perfect cup of tea.  I planned a Royal Tea Party, where all the princesses and princes/knights would come dressed in royal attire, and would learn to how to be a princess/price just like Sofia the First.

post10The main focus of my party was the Royal Seating Table for the tea party in a mini ballroom setting (our living room).  I draped lavender and pink tulle from the second floor to the opposite wall to give it a ballroom feel.  The royal table was decorated with candelabras, tea sets, and a Royal Prep Academy Teapot.  I personalized each place setting for each of the princesses and knights. Flower centerpieces added sweet princess touch.

To keep the “princess in training” idea, I created a Royal Prep Academy (Sofia’s princess training school) table. I had the school’s logo recreated and enlarged then hung the three head mistresses Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather from the roof as if they were flying around like they do on the show.  Princesses and Knights received their tiaras, swords, and accessories.

Our first activity was the tea party.  Our castle steward served all the princess and knights their tea (apple juice) and snacks, just like Baileywick (Sofia’s castle steward) would do for Sofia the First.  He also did a great job putting their linen napkins correctly on their laps and reminding them of their royal etiquette.

After our little royal guests finished their snacks, they indulged in some royal crafting activities….paper fan decorating just like one of my daughter’s favorite episodes. The princes and knights decorated paper swords. “Ballroom” dancing and “Happy Birthday” singing completed the activities.

The dessert table was filled with the birthday princess’s favorite treats: cake, cupcakes, cookies, rice krispies, chocolate, macarons, blueberry cheesecake, and lots of chocolate.  All desserts were decorated with lavender details.
