A Summer Vintage Tea Party

I am on the final countdown until all the construction on my house is finished!

  ***cue fireworks, excited squeals, and sighs of relief**

And I have decided that once it is all done and my house looks better than ever, I want to have my friends over for a little get together.  And while I am sure it will only be the first of many parties, I really want the first one to be extra special and true to who I am.

So what is more me than a vintage tea party!?  And half the fun of the party is all the planning that goes into it…. along with the hours of finding and perfecting the perfect recipes.  Yum!

Here are a few samples of ideas I have and plan to use!

I love the idea of using vintage dishes to hold all of the accessories for the party.  This example from Martha Stewart reminds me of a 1930’s table setting.

I don’t personally own a vintage cake pedestal, but here are two wonderful ways to create some of my own!

And of course, the most important thing for any party (apart from the tea) are the finger foods offered in delicate shapes.  Tea Time (link below the picture) has many delicious options to choose from!

Tea Time

I still haven’t decided on the tea…any ideas or recommendations?  I am more of a coffee drinker, so if any of you tea connoisseurs out there could lead me down the right path, I would be most grateful!

Now with all these ideas, what better way to wait out the last few weeks of building and landscaping  than with some fun tea party crafts and recipes testing! 🙂
