Girly Tea

I had the honor of hostessing a table at our Church's first "Intergenerational Tea"...It was so much fun to bring so many women together in friendship and fellowship on a rainy, cool Saturday!  I loved using my grandmother's china, beautiful linens and silver!  I was channeling my Mom back home who taught me to love flowers at a very young age - although she has mad skills...I just try and emulate her!  Fussing over flowers, table settings, and finding the right "favor" is truly a creative outlet for me, one that lets me express myself, fills my bucket and always puts a smile on my face.  I love to honor my friends and family this way too...never doing it to impress (although always nice to hear the compliments)...just really doing it for me and those I love! 
Each hostess was responsible for her own  table settings and centerpieces...it was so much fun to see every one's tables - all lovely and original!  There was a 'tea bar" - many flavors to choose from and all the food was homemade and donated by Church friends!  We also had a wonderful speaker who discussed her volunteer work in our community to fund cancer support and medical help!  It was just a happy, happy day!

My Table...








Other pretty things...


  My friend Claudia's table was gorgeous in green...black&white!  Loved her centerpiece with limes and lime green Hydrangea!

She made each of her guests a flower pin to wear...so clever!



I loved the glass bottles of "Voss" water...a really fun
and modern twist!


A few of my sweet friends and table mates!

This party is BEAUTIFUL! Clearly you have a gift for throwing a wonderful party! Thanks for stopping by Three Pixie Lane to see our Vintage Paper Doll Party (can you tell I love to throw parties too!!)In response to your question about the props, I linked in red right under the first pix (I think!) all the sites that I printed the props from!
