~English Tea Party- Part 2~

~Let Them Eat Cake~
The party continues with lots of photos.
I made sugar cookies,
with teapot cookie cutters.
I made 3 different sizes.
I iced them with red and blue!
Virginia made scones.
They looked so pretty!
I made Giada de Laurentiis recipe for
Lavender & Lemon cookies.
They were delicious!
I wanted to make our place setting name tags for the tea party.
I painted some peat pots white and then added 
some cut outs that I found at Michael's 
and painted them with chalkboard paint.
Glued them all together to make a festive Tea Party place setting.
I saw this recipe using Korbel Rose Champagne &
 a splash of Creme Yvette.
Tami make the prettiest ice bucket using flowers.
It looked so special.
I had to buy this beautiful bottle of wine.
Did you notice I even made butter roses and 
placed them on little glass plates?
I picked edible flowers that morning 
from our garden and washed them off to dry.
Virginia and Mary helped make fresh sandwiches using;
cream cheese
 cucumbers, watercress, flowers and turkey and jelly.
They looked so elegant on the tray.
The color of the flowers were gorgeous.
Yuri made a beautiful salad. 
I was so busy with the party,
 I forgot to take a picture, sorry Yuri. It was delicious!
Mary made a carrot soup, so yummy!
I made two quiches.
Spinach, mushrooms and swiss cheese in one.
The other one, I added bacon to it.
I loved making these different size butterflies to place everywhere.
Some souvenir teapots from England.
A London underground map.

Some little touches here and there.

It was a beautiful day in San Diego. 
So, I had another table ready just in case. 
We had plenty of places to sit.
Stan picked fresh flowers from our garden.

I took lots of photos.
So tomorrow,
I'll show you more of the party!

    You are so lucky to have perfect weather in SD - my daughter lived there for 7 years and it was always so perfect...it is hardly EVER perfect here, but today it IS!

    Of course it is nearly impossible to plan an outdoor dining party unless it is last minute b/c of our weather changing on a dime......but oh well.

    I ♥ your outdoor table area - it is a perfect place for a small tea party or when you are able to do so!
