Birthday "Tea" Time

This was the beautiful Birthday Tea party that my Cousin and God Daughters did for both my Mom and I...since we both share February Birthdays! (I'm just now getting it posted...hey, only 5 months ago, LOL)

It was so much fun and I have to say that everything was gorgeous. It was like we went to a fancy restaurant for tea and goodies. If you look at the table above (and the pics below) you can see where they had strawberries dipped in chocolate, homemade brownies, lovely caramel and truffle chocolates, and heart cupcakes. (And that was just dessert!) It was hard to decide what to try.... (I think I may have tried one of each...how could you say no right?)


Not only was the food amazing, but the table was set so beautifully as well. The tea cups, saucers, sugar bowl and creamer were all china. And they all were a flowered pattern but every one was slightly different. I'm not sure how much you can see in the next few pics but this is how the table was formally set when my Mom and I arrived.



It was one of the most wonderful Birthdays that I can remember. I felt so special and to be with my family and friends to enjoy that day was just the icing on the "cupcake".
Here is a picture of my two God Daughters that worked so hard to help their Mom with this fantastic party. They are so special and two of the most thoughtful girls I know. (I think they are pretty cute too!) See for yourself....

So next time you wanna have a small and intimate get together for your girlfriends or a family members Birthday, try this fantastic tea party idea. It was formal but fun and just perfect for a Sunday afternoon tea brunch!!! :)
And as Always...Thanks so much for visiting,
Danielle
