Baby Shower Tea Party

My sisters and mothers (real, step and in-law) all coordinated a most wonderful baby shower. My only request was that it be a British Style High Tea inspired by having my baby just weeks after Kate Middleton.

The details were wonderful. Delicious tea, tasty snacks and baby inspired activities.

But the best part really was all of the women who came to celebrate with me. I was so humbled by all of the love and support that came to me, and all just because we decided to have a baby. One thing is for sure, this kid is going to have lots of love in his life!

Obsessed with Tea

DSC_0201

For my 31st birthday I wanted to take the Mother’s day tea to the next level. There were 3 things about our Mother’s day tea that I didn’t like (as the event planner): the 11am start time, the lack of mimosas and the boas. I wanted to make this tea more of a high tea that would occur after breakfast and would also have more emphasis on the nice garden party attire. I added these elements to my birthday High Tea and was thrilled with the results! Unfortunately, nobody who attended mother’s day tea was able to attend my birthday tea so the only judge is myself.

The Menu:
Mimosas- Grapefruit & Orange Juices; Cava; Brut & Red Moscato
Tea Sandwiches-Cucumber with a mint & dill avocado spread; chicken salad with fresh basil & egg salad with dijon
Scones- Jalapeno & Feta, Orange Spice
Sweets- Assorted cookies and cakes

The attire:
I didn’t give too much guidance but what I did say was wear a dress that Princess Kate would swoon over, and maybe a hat. I am happy to report that my friends and family came through. Everyone arrived with a tea cup and a classy outfit!

Time for Tea, ladies!

Jenny and Shelby came to visit and we decided to host a ‘high tea’ for Mother’s Day in our newly finished dining area.DSC_0281 DSC_0278 DSC_0276

I am so so happy with the colors and decor we pulled together for this room. I am very excited to use more in the future! We had hats, boas and pearls and had everyone ready for Mother’s day. It was absolutely wonderful!
