It is that time of year, the time that we honor our Mothers, Grandmother's, God Mother's and Mother figures. It is MOTHER'S DAY! It is my annual tradition to host a Tea Party. Last Year's Tea was a blast, while it was my first it turned out rather nicely. This year I had even more ideas on how to improve upon my tea party. There were a few things I wanted to incorporate this year but I had a lot going (I was taking swimming lesson) on and I didn't get to all the tiny details. All of my guest enjoyed the set up and had a really good time. I can't wait to make it even better next year.
Three Mother's Days in a row I have attended a tea with my mother and sister. Over those years I got the tea party itch and wanted to host a tea of my own. In 2006 I purchased my own tea set and let me tell you it is a beauty. The theme of my set is butterflies, but they are so tiny I won't actually use them. From then I began to shop around for all of the perfect accessories to coordinate nicely with my set. As luck would have it I found the perfect bowl and plate from Target. I found other random accessories from Home Goods, Michael's and any other spots that had something butterfly-esque. Well five years later my time came and LADIES & GENTLEMEN I hosted my very first tea. For those that know me know I'm a lover of all things creative, crafts and planning. So I decided I would host a Post Mother's Day brunch since I was out of town on Mother's Day. I assembled my guest list, confirmed their availability and sent out my invitations. So I sent out five invitations, each a different color, each with a different butterfly. Here I captured each butterfly so you can see how they looked. I put in one full copy so you can visualize how each were styled different but looked the same.
