My friends (Ela, Emmy), and I did some prep work the night before, so here's our peg.
Colors: Pink, teal, lime green, orange (i.e. happy Spring colors)
Props: Doilies, colorful daisies, tiered servers, anything floral and (elegantly) fun and cute
So on to the following day...
It was actually pot luck, so we instructed people to bring something appropriate for the theme (screening was done via e-mail hahaha)! I still made small labels, because I noticed in parties, people always asked, "ano to?" to every single dish and I'd have to answer them all throughout the party... so, with the help of scrapbook printed paper and my trusty old printer (no questions asked, just recipes):
Tabby & her Tea... Love the hanging flower pompoms? Instructions can be found here.
What's a tea party without tea? Good thing I have so many teacups - the biggest hit was the heart shaped teacups and saucers (hubby's valentines' gift last year). We also served brewed coffee and cold cider.
Props, props, props! And cool macro shots, why not?
I have not yet taken down the lanterns -- looking at them makes me happy especially when I'm getting too stressed at work! They're like happy clouds you want to live in.
The lovely ladies in their pretty dresses and the boys, uh... in their rugged attire.
