The first thing I had was a left over Manzanita branches I used for the Valentines party I hosted in my house (I will post later this week the valentine décor and favors). Since my tea party theme had a LOT of butterflies I thought it would be cute to use the same centerpiece - so here is the new version:
I always make custom chocolate bars but this time I found at Target little boxes of Raisinets and decided to use them.
I used craft paper to wrap the boxes and a green paper ribbon. Than I had a lot of left over fabric from the table runner and tea hats and decided to cut thin stripes. On the top I hot glued butterflies that I cut using the Martha Stewart butterfly punch.
Here is how everything came together:
For the backdrop (my wall) I hang a BIG butterfly (from pier1) and a few tissue paper pom poms.
I made marshmallows dipped in pink chocolate ,
brigadeiros - a popular, easy-to-make, sweet enjoyed at Brazilian parties - made with sweet condensed milk and chocolate powder (find recipe here).
