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!
