You’re Invited……… A custom invitation always makes it a special occasion.
This post is for my fellow tea party lovers out there. As I have mentioned before, I love the whole idea of Afternoon Tea. And, if I can combine it with a visit with a girlfriend then it’s made even more special. I recently got to do just that when I threw an Un-Birthday Tea Party for my girlfriend, Vicki. We have been friends since we were two years old and went to nursery school together all the way through high school graduation! So, can you imagine my disbelief when I realized that I mistakenly wished her a happy birthday ten days after her b’day?! I got the wrong day! This called for a very special make-it-up-to-her party! So, I threw her an Un-Birthday Tea Party!
Your Tea Party hostess with the mostest! 🙂 I got this cute spring floral maxi dress from Steinmart.
Set a pretty Tea Table ~ I set up outside in my courtyard. Luckily the weather cooperated! Use your prettiest serving pieces. And, remember to have flowers!
The other star of the Tea Table is a Victoria Sponge Cake. This is a Raspberry Jam Cake. Amazing! I will post the recipe.
I enjoy any reason to entertain (on and off the stage!) so I had great fun planning all the details of this very special occasion for my very special friend. I hope you enjoy this little gallery of photos I took to document the festivities. And, maybe it will inspire you to celebrate one of your special girlfriends with a beautiful tea party. Just don’t wait until you miss her birthday!!
*This lovely Tea Party would also be a perfect way to celebrate Mom on Mother’s Day!
It’s another lazy Sunday afternoon, which means it’s time for another SUNny DAY POST!
And, Happy July! I realized that I forgot to share my June B-Metro Magazine column with you so here it is. Hope it gives you a little laugh. And, for all my fellow Gemini’s ~ I am sure that you will recognize yourselves…..all of them! 😉 #twinning
I’d like to take this opportunity to wish my husband a very happy birthday today. He is the best husband, the best father, the best photographer and the best friend. Out of all the Billy Browns in the world, he’s the Billy Browniest! 😉
Here’s another flashback from my not too long ago 50th Birthday shoot shot by that fabulous photographer husband of mine Billy Brown. We have been working together for thirty years now and enjoy having a close creative partnership! We have thousands of images…..but I won’t bore you with all those ~ maybe just this one 😉
