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!
My love has given me the cold shoulder this morning and I thought my column in this month’s B-Metro Magazine was perfect timing! I hope you enjoy it. And, cuddle up and stay warm out there ~ don’t come out until after Easter! ~ Sunny 🙂
In honor of our wedding anniversary this month I interview my husband for my column in B-Metro Magazine for my annual check-in with him to get his thoughts on all things about the state of our union. Read on for all the intimate details 😉

It’s that time of year again! Actually, it was that time of year again last month for our annual X-Mas in July “Epic Southern Living Magazine Christmas Cake Baking Party!” However, this year one of my nieces couldn’t make it for any dates in July so we moved it to August. And, once again, it was a chaotic, but fun, success!
Here is the cake we decided to make this year:
Ta Da! We did it! The Southern Living Magazine Chocolate Citrus Orange Cake with Candied Oranges and Chocolate Ganache Filling!
This annual tradition came about a few years ago when I realized that Continue reading

Here’s my latest column for a little humorous reading on this Sunday afternoon. It seems we could always do with a little laughter in the day and I hope this gives you a chuckle, especially any of you out there about to become an Empty Nester ( or so you think 😉 with graduation season upon us this month.
As always, thanks so much for reading ~ Sunny
