Beautiful Barbie Tea Party {MommyParties Sponsored by Mega Bloks}

Today we hosted what very well might be our most memorable party ever!  About a month ago, we received an email asking if we would be interested in hosting a party with 10 friends to help tryout the new line of Mega Bloks featuring Barbie.  Would we?  Of course!





We were sent this amazing Barbie Mega Bloks Luxury Mansion and a Build N Style Pool Party, along with 6 Build N Style Fashion Stands and 4 Build N Style Ice Cream Stands.

With such amazing party favors, we decided to throw the little girl's tea party we had always dreamed of.  So, here are a few {okay a TON} of photos from our dream party-come true!

 

We started out with a dress up corner, where the girls could put on big dresses and high shoes to wear to the party.  Some wore their dresses the entire party, others spent the entire party putting on all the dresses :).

Next to the dresses, we had set up a little table just the right height to play with the Barbie Mega Bloks Luxury House and Pool!






Since Thursday is Valentine's Day, we decided to set up a Valentine's making table.  We included heart stickers, heart doilies, scented stickers, and, of course, some Barbie Valentines!



What tea party is complete without food?!  


Mustang was the host for this party, so she chose the food.  We have cream puffs, candy hearts, saltwater taffy, and Goldfish crackers.


My friend baked us the most AMAZING Neapolitan cupcakes that were seriously the best I've ever tasted!


Strawberries and ham and cheese sandwiches were the 'healthy foods' of the day :).  The plates and jars to the left are actually what the moms used to eat and drink from.  The jars were so neat!  I borrowed them from a friend and loved them!


Here is where the girls sat :).



I used old curtain panels and needlepoint runners I found on swap sites.  The centerpieces were wreaths I bought about 13 years ago when a local store was going out of business.

Each girl had a teacup, saucer, desert plate, and desert cup at their place.    I found them all at thrift stores and local swap sites.  We used vintage hankies as napkins and slid them through the handle of the teacup.  In each seat was also a fun Barbie Mega Bloks surprise!
We didn't have tea, but we had the yummiest of punches that the girls drank in their teacups.


And, we had scoops of strawberry ice cream in vintage juice cups and desert bowls to top it off!


Each girl received a Barbie Fashion Stand or Ice Cream Cart.  Inside each box is a Mega Bloks Barbie, so we encouraged each girl to take hers out so she could play in the Luxury House and Pool.


Of course, this created a mass visit to the house after we ate!  Can you see the house in there?


It didn't hold up real well with so many visitors at one time, 


but, all was not lost as they got to have fun rebuilding the house {which is half the fun anyways}.


I absolutely loved watching our friend work on building using nothing but the picture on the box to help her.  She was so intent and did a great job!


With the house under construction, the girls decided to add water to the pool.  Yes, you heard that right, you can put water in the pool!


It was also a hit!


As an added bonus, I found this super cool 'Dance Like Barbie' DVD on a local swap site and picked it up for the girls. 


It was a hit and added some activity to the party.




Here is the Fashion Stand that some of the girls got to take home.  It only took her about a half hour to put together with her mom.  Very cute!


Overall, we had an absolutely amazing time.  The food, the fun, the friends and the Barbie Mega Bloks, made this afternoon one that I know Mustang, Mini Cooper, and I will remember for a very long time.  One little friend even said this was her favorite party ever!

I put together my very first Vlog so you could see the Mega Bloks in action.  I'm slightly technologically challenged, so please excuse the part where I need my V8 at the beginning, it gets better!



The Barbie Mega Bloks Luxury House retails for $79.99, the Pool Party retails for $39.99, and the Ice Cream Stand and Fashion Stands retail for $9.99 each.  They are available where ever Mega Bloks are sold.

Thank you so much to Mega Bloks, MommyParties, and Mom Select for allowing us to host our Barbie Mega Bloks party!!

And thank YOU for stopping by and checking out our fun!

God Bless,
