Today, I want to tell you about a co-operative effort some people from my etsy street team (cast or Christian Artists Street Team) are formulating. It is still in it’s formative stages at the moment but developing nicely. It was actually conceived when a couple team members wanted to support each other. This “teamwork” mushroomed and developed into what we see happening here.

One of our members took the lead and orchestrated this great collaboration. She is a potter  ……. and among other beautiful objects of art, she makes teapots. Here is her shop:

An idea that began with a tiny little teapot for a little girl’s Happy Birthday Tea Party has blossomed into what is now called BIRTHDAY PARTY IN A BOX.

The premise is to provide for the party planner (usually Mom ) everything needed for a spectacular birthday party for the little Birthday Girl.

A miniature, hand thrown teapot plus four tiny cups would be made by …….

All BPIAB offerings would come in sets of four except for the tea set, of which there will be but one - for the Birthday Girl. The tea set will be made up in  party theme.  It might be butterflies or ballet or horses, etc.

Available for the party planner to put in her Birthday Box would be  matching paper ware – Birthday Card for the Birthday Girl,  invitations, thank you notes, place cards, banner and gift bags, all from the shops of our paper artists and all with the party’s theme.

Fabric artists (sewers) will co-ordinate with the same fabric for napkins, placemats, doll dresses, and embellished apron blanks for the party craft activity.

A sugar art cake topper following the party theme.

 Party favors provided by………………….

And, finally, a personalized teaspoon for the guests to stir their tea with and eat their Birthday Cake.

We are excited by our team effort of BIRTHDAY PARTY IN A BOX. What do you think?

  2. I think it is a great idea! I would be interested in participating if it weren't so far from here to there.
