Garden Tea Party

We recently celebrated the visit of our cousins from England with an afternoon Garden Tea Party! All photographs taken by Emi Moorcroft of Everleaf Photography. Click on any photo to view larger.

Tables were set on the deck ready for tea to be served, the trees decked with fabric pennants and a picnic cloth with play tea set to welcome young guests!

Napkins folded and balloons blown. 

Tea cart set with favors of floral pencils and tags.

Each table was set with a floral cloth and lace overlay, tea cup and plate, floral napkin, flowers in mason jars, platter with milk and sugar cubes and a tiered tea treat stand.


 Each tiered Tea Treat stand held tea sandwiches, scones with cream and assorted mini pastries. Yum! 

Lots of guests enjoying the party - playing tea party, chatting, enjoying treats, and playing "Pass the Parcel".
