Tea Party Wrap-Up

My friend and I hosted a tea party last Saturday and I wanted to share some pictures with you.  It was a wonderful day; good friends, good food, all around wonderful.


For favors, I made little jars full of loose tea.  I'll show you the step-by-step of how I made these later this week.



I found some adorable napkins at the party store and couldn't resist.  I think I may use the leftovers to decorate a wooden tray or else some glass plates.


My husband bought me these lovely lilies when I got back from Kansas and luckily they were still in full bloom for the party.  I bought that tea pot a few years back at a flea market.  In case you can't tell, those are bunnies dancing.


Shockingly, my set of 100 cookie cutters did not have a shamrock.  However, green flowers made a pretty good substitute. 


We set out as much tea as we could and all the possible tea fixings.   Later, we added lemon slices as well.



I loved having an excuse to use my fancy tea set.  The set was a wedding gift and I absolutely love it.  I tied little ribbons onto the handles to help tell the cups apart.


Finally, here's a picture of me.  I've gotten so in the habit of photographing the things I make and bake that I often forget the people.  I didn't get any of the girls hanging out, but at least you can see me :)


I hope this helps inspire you to throw your own tea party!  Enjoy!
