A Spot of Tea

January 31, 2010

Filed Under : EAT

I know I’ve been totes MIA for the past couple days so I apologize for that. But a lot has happened since we last spoke so I will give you a quick update. For one, I turned 23 years old (sigh). I also acquired a new pair of Gaga-inspired lenses (thanks KT), did some arts & crafts (see menus below), and threw a tea party. Quite an eventful couple of days!

But anyways, the tea party was absolutely lovely – just a small gathering with my closest friends! We ate (a lot), drank a lot (of tea), and (as always) had the most unusual/amazing conversations revolving around the bar in Heather M.’s arm (no comment). Though I don’t have too many photos of the food since I was too busy stuffing my face with it, I was able to snap a few pictures here and there:

Shout out to my mother: Thank you so much for all your help!!!! Without you, I would have had no plates, cups, tea, sandwiches, desserts….everything actually. And thanks to my beautiful friends for spending a day of joyful merriment with me!!

***UPDATE*** My good friend Ann-Marie posted a little snip-it about the tea party on her blog, The Cozy Farmhouse. Check it out!

Garden Collection for my Garden Party

Ever since reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, I’ve had a very strong urge to host a tea party in my backyard garden. There’s something about the mixture of Victorian traditions and ruthless, man-eating zombies that really speaks “tea party” to me. Thus, I must host one.

And every good host must have an outfit that matches her theme (mine, of course, being tea pahty in the gahden). Luckily for moi, H&M has come out with a Garden Collection and any one of these confections will be PERFECT for my fête. Here are my faves:

Ok so these aren’t exactly Victorian but they’re the perfect dose of feminine, no?? I will keep you updated on my tea party in the coming weeks.
