Tower Of Teacups

Have you ever seen a more enchanting tower of non breakable teacups? This wonky centerpiece is topped off with a rhinestone swirl, I just cut really close to the acetate packaging it comes on, and attached the swirl to the back of the tippy top tea cup. 
Bella bleu {stampin Up} and a pretty patterned print cut with the once upon a princess cricut cartridge in various sizes staring at 2 3/4 and going down .25  each cut, just tip and turn them the way you like and assemble with foam tape.

My girls are quite grown up, but I like to think the inner princess stays forever young :)  Aurora is one of our favorites, and of course they indulged my fantasy party in exchange for lemon frosted cake...princesses are so easily bribed you know. *wink*

One of my vintage pink cake plates was so proud to be the lucky one to leave the cabinet after being cooped up for a year!I really should not neglect my pink glass collection after so many years of gathering it. I made these title place cards for our little sweets soiree, and can serve double duty as both, a party favor or an embellishment for a layout.The happily ever after cricut cartridge has all your favorite Disney divas!

A great way to display a princessy cake is to place a tulle skirt under the cake on the cake stand, that way your table really is properly dressed.I sure hope you were inspired to throw a party of your own even if its just because you feel like honoring your Inner princess.

Happy creating,
