Tea Party

nullnullnullnull

Good morning, loves! Hope the week is treating you well.

Ever since I attended by cousin's bridal tea this past weekend, my mind has been consumed with thoughts of throwing a tea party. There was something so quaint, easy and elegant about it.
My tea fantasy would take place in a stunning villa and it would include the most gorgeous china, scrumptious tea sandwiches, scones, macarons, tarts and cream puffs and and array of the most delicious tasting teas.

Care to join the party?

Have a wonderful day, sweets!
