I have always loved the idea of tea parties – getting all dressed up and enjoying a fancy afternoon with friends. I grew up watching Alice in Wonderland, dreaming to one day have high tea with Mr. Rabbit and the Mad Hatter.
A couple weeks ago my sweetest friend Katie threw the most amazing and well thought out Tea Party for all her family and friends to celebrate her bridal shower. Everything was absolutely perfect from the well steeped tea to the gorgeous decor and especially the most beautiful bride to be. Guests all dressed the part wearing cute spring dresses and stunning fascinators. If you took a walk around the party, you would see vintage tea cups all lined up with hand calligraphy name tags tucked underneath. As well as, the cutest milk containers for guest favours and the most delicious sweets in every direction you looked (Drooling).
Union Jack Tea Room catered the event and supplied the tiers of scones, cookies, cakes, and cucumber sandwiches of course. Their selection of tea was so nice, especially having an iced option for the warm day we had. A traditional high tea at its finest for sure. Macaroons and Cake were from the best baker in town, Shelby’s Sweet Shoppe , and they definitely didn’t last long…way way to good.
I’m sure you can tell by my description so far that myself and everyone invited, was completely blown away by Katie’s High Tea Party. I am still looking back at these pictures in awe. They look like they came straight out of a magazine !…Or (if your like me) any of our many dreamed of Pinterest inspired parties. Every direction you looked was filled with everything high tea related and it was wonderful.
