I do apologize that I haven’t been posting as regularly as I did in the past. I am reworking my brand, and at the same time I have had a great many dance job offers out of the blue (which I am absolutely loving!!).
I’d rather not post fluff just to post, and instead post things that I am really passionate about. I am trying to have more of a variety of everything I love.. and that’s a lot, so bear with me while I work this all out.
One thing I love is party planning. I don’t know about you, but I love entertaining. It’s been hard moving to a totally new state, 1,000 miles from everyone you knew, but at the same time I am meeting a lot of fun and wonderful people. Since we moved into a way larger place, I have been brainstorming about great themed parties again. So, I am bringing you an inspiration board for a party each and every month.
This month I am featuring a Mother’s Day Tea Party, which I will post on Wednesday. Come back to see it then!
Let’s go back in time today…… (cue that wavy dream sequence where I tilt my head in pensive thought).
Years back I had a little vintage 40’s and 50’s inspired tea party. I invited a few close women and we had a nice afternoon of relaxing and girl talk.
The vision was a super feminine, frilly, and delicate party with childhood delights in mind.
I created a Spring menu:
And set the table with pastels. You can see some of my etsy creations were alive and well back then.
The pastel colored apple bowls were a Goodwill find. And I created my own cloth napkins, and embellished them with a vintage brooch.
It was also my best friend’s birthday, so I made a 4 layer pastel cake. I decorated the top with some colored chocolate hearts that I made from a chocolate mold.
Favors included a small candy buffet….
and these very prize puff inspired carry out boxes full of small girly trinkets.
It was a fun afternoon, and I miss my best friend and her mom (my Ma B) but friends are always close in our hearts!
Tune in Wednesday to see my Mother’s Day Tea Party Vision Board!
