Ava's Tea Party
I first read Ava Rosemeyer's story about a year ago, I was searching and came across some beautiful images and noticed a tab with the simple heading Ava and a link to her memorial site.
To say Ava's story is touching is a complete understatement, Ava was not yet 4 when she was unexpectedly taken from her family. One of the things that Ava had been looking forward to was a tea party she had been planning with her family.
A group of talented people have had the vision to create Ava's Tea Party in August each year, to inspire people to spend time together with their loved ones. Links to these groups are included at the end of this post.
So inspired, on Monday the 23rd of August some friends and I had a tea party in memory of Ava Rosemeyer.
Naomi from Naomi V Photography took beautiful images of this wonderful day and Daneve from Ah Tissue came and decorated with her gorgeous pom poms.
We remembered a little princess, we laughed, had fun and spent time with some people we love and some new friends.
We had rosewater cupcakes, chocolate macarons, oreo cookie pops, flower sugar cookies and Wizz Fizz sherbet icecream cones.
In memory of Ava I didn't stop the kids from wading in the mud and squishing it between their toes. Lilli told me this was the best part of the party......
Big bubble blowers.......always lots of fun.
Proving that not only princesses love a tea party Kye was the ultimate party boy.
Later while driving home Lilli asked me if I thought that Ava got the balloons up in Heaven that we had released.
I'd like to think she did.
Ava's Tea Party is held in August of every year. This year Details Details has a range of printable invites for $10 each designed by a group of super talented Australian Stationery designers. The whole $10 you pay is donated to Paradise Kids a community funded organisation which helps families through grief and loss.
Big thank you to Naomi V Photography and Ah Tissue for helping to make this such a wonderful day for the kids.
