Tea Party
 Saturday July 6, 2013
for Tiffany's Seventeenth Birthday
Our Memory Album   

There are a lot of photos, hope you enjoy them. 

Decorations and Displays

First we have my favorite display done in soft colors of  pink and blue, complimented by some of my shabby chic items and some antique hand painted Bavarian porcelain.

Foyer entry display with Shabby Chic fondant cupcakes and our handmade gifts for our guest - bookmarks, teas and candies. 

Gifts for Our Guest 

Our fondant cupcakes, so pretty, handmade and decorated by Beverly and Tiffany with pink, blue and green fondant.  We added pearls, bows and stencil chandeliers to them.  This was a learning experience but oh so fun!

A pretty place to sit and The Vintage Tea Party book!

Tea Stand

This is our tea rack that was once a salvaged store display for wine.  I painted it white and hand painted the words Tea Cottage Pretties on it.  I also hand painted the roses and leaves and added some tulle fabric to pretty it up!

(The Tea Set seen in these photos was by
 Laura Ashley and is called Celia) 

Our teacup Cupcake Stand - handmade and decorated by Beverly and Tiffany, just precious.  Each silicon cupcake holder looks like a tea cup.  We topped them with white icing (homemade butter cream) to resemble whipped cream and decorated.  Some had white chocolate speckled spoons (handmade) and others had straws and different decoration.  These were Tiffany's favorites. 

Marie Antoinette Tea and an assortment of teas. 
Light blue and pink French macaroons and 
white chocolate mint roses.
