time for tea.

the day before my birthday i had a few of my closest friends (besides a few of them who were out of town) over for a tea party. every birthday girl deserves to throw themselves a tea party right?

*paisley wanted in on the pictures but refused to smile for some of them. such a stinker!
the couple weeks leading up to my tea party were spent slaving over my invites and decorations, specifically this backdrop. i ended up being so pleased and happy with how it all turned out.
we served fruit skewers, broccoli salad, little "finger" chicken salad sandwiches, thai chicken coconut soup in mini ramekins, and last - but certainly not least - peach tea.
for dessert we served bundtinis from nothing bundt cakes (equivalent to bite sized bundt cakes. everything needed to be miniature of course because it was a tea party after all)
we lucked out with the weather (for the most part) it had been a pretty windy weekend but luckily the wind didn't start until dinner was over. since the wind was picking up we moved the party inside so we could light the candles on the "cake" my tea party was the perfect start to my birthday celebrations.
