We live in a historical home that was built in 1917. The house holds a lot of history, which I will get into in another blog post, but because of that historical significance I have been really unsure of painting…
I love tea and I love cake, so what better excuse to indulge in my love of culinary confections and a caffeinated cuppa than through a beautifully presented tea party in honor of our super sweet baby Audrey who was turning 1. This post is long overdue – but better late than never, right?
Our food selection was pretty simple, tea and light refreshments which consisted of finger sandwiches, Scones and jam, and a grazing table. The grazing table is an Australian idea which is basically a selection of snacks stylishly placed right on the table. Usually brown packaging paper or a burlap runner is placed on the table and the food is arranged on top. This grazing style is fun and whimsical and adds depth of selection to the food offerings. Best of all it is surprisingly was easy to do! All you need is brown packaging paper, a few dishes for your dips, and your imagination on how to style the food.
We had a wonderful time celebrating with good friends. Our friend who is a harpist performed and that added a touch of elegance to a relaxed baby filled afternoon.
I decorated with traditional pink and gold to celebrate her milestone birthday. Decorations were super easy to source through Amazon, and I put together charming goody bags with personalized stickers created on Vistaprint.
We had a lovely day celebrating Audrey’s 1st year with our family and friends. It was such a joyous occasion and an elegant afternoon. How do you like to celebrate milestone birthdays? Leave me a comment below.
Until Next Time
