Just a little tea party, No. 5 in our series #romancingthehomesundays


What a lovely little idea, to do a tea party. I’m truly blessed to have my special daughters with me to share in these memories.

As you are aware I have a major obsession with roses, 300 roses bushed should give you a hint “wink wink”. I added to store-bought roses some garden rose which smell amazing. I have used #avrilelizabethrose from #Ludwigroses Ludwig Roses . Their sent is just so beautiful and their full rose cup is in the softest shade of peach.

This was the perfect opportunity to bring out my beautiful silver tea set. I have been collecting odd silver pieces for many years now. I just can’t help myself! I love to keep them in a tarnished patina…my mom thinks I am completely bonkers for doing this, but I prefer the weathered old look of silver to the shiny “bling bling” version.

My mom also gifted me her beautiful Royal Albert tea set. (Brigadoon). Her only condition is that I use it! I have on many occasions used this set and it just has a beautiful timelessness about it.

I bought some delicious dirty ices cakes from Talia at My Shabby Shack with the most devine flavours of black tea and rose. These yummy cakes had a Turkish delight centre. I decorated them with fresh flowers from the Market and some simple but elegant baby’s breath flowers.

I also bought a family favourite caramel doughnuts from @Woolworths These decadent little yummies are filled with caramel and were just the perfect size and colour to match these muted blush tones.

What is a tea party without cucumber sandwiches, I added fresh mint from the herb garden and used my mom homemade cream cheese. Luna insisted we make some butterfly shape sandwiches.

It really was a very special time spent with my girl.
