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! 

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!

And, once again, it was a chaotic, but fun, success!

Here is the cake we decided to make this year:
