Would you believe I had more garlands that I didn't get round to hanging?
I decided to go with a faded pastel colour scheme and an entire table of sweet treats (ok, there were a few healthy snacks for the bebes)
Earl Grey Cupcakes, tiny doily heart shaped toppers - and a lot of pink glitter sugar to cover up the uneven frosting!
Recognise that cupcake stand?
Rose-tinted meringues with pink buttercream
a doilie bowl full of marshmallows
(excuse the cake sitting on a cardboard cake box, I didn't take into account the 9"cake 7" cakestand ratio!)
Pink Wafers & Party Rings
As well as the dessert table, I put together a little tea bar using china teacups, vintage teaspoons and lots of lovely things to customise your cuppa:
rose scented black tea
earl grey with a hint of orange blossom
vanilla sugar & dried lavender
vanilla sugar, lavender, green tea, lemon slices, demerara
chai spiced milk, jersey cream, sugar cubes
rosetinted tea, orange blossom earl grey, decaf Yorkshire blend
I'm not sure I managed an entire cup of tea the whole party, or got my hands on a slice of cake, but I had such a great time. We are off to my hometown tomorrow, for a hot date while my mama looks after the little man for the first time!
