Fairy Favorable Food

This fairy tea was prepared for a 5 year old. The Fiesta bread-and-butter plate was more durable than depression glass, which is what I usually like to use with my vintage linens. The food was quite small and easy to prepare. The tiny rose scones were baked in a Nordic Ware petit fours pan from Williams-Sonoma. The butterfly finger sandwich were filled with strawberry cream cheese. I used gum paste cutters (leaves and flowers) from Michael's to make the linzer cookies and fruit. I piped tiny flowers on two-bite muffins from the Albertson's bakery. I was lucky to find a tiny 3-tier bon bon server with leaf trays.


  1. Hi Miss Diane,

    So glad to see you blogging. I am not sure if you will remember me, but we spoke a few times{a few years ago} via email about my daughter's b'day party...her name is Morgan.

    We are sincerely fans of your darling parties and adore your Taking Tea With Alice book. Actually, Morgan is turning 8 in August and has decided on a vintage Alice party...we are thrilled beyond words and enjoying every minute of planning this party.

    Thank you for your lovely ideas,

  2. Hi Debra,
    I do remember you. I will post a "talking flower" cupcake and "wonderland flower and leaf" cookie in a few days. You might want to use them for Morgan's party. My youngest child graduates from high school next week. He finished his finals yesterday and today he goes to Disneyland.
    Take care,

  3. ooh thank you Diane. I would welcome these sweet ideas for Morgan's party.I will be following your blog and placing an order for books and cookie cutters soon--I think they will make cute party favors!

    Morgan will turn 8 on 8/5 but we will be celebrating her birthday with friends once school is back in session...and our weather is less humid. That gives me plenty of time to gather ideas and make this party--magical!

    We are actually coming to CA in July and will be having an Alice inspired tea in San Francisco, we are so excited!I am hoping to find some Alice goodies on one of our shopping trips.

    Best wishes to your son--

    Have a wonderful day,
