An Afternoon Tea Party

I have been away from my blog for a bit (just over a month), but the ideas haven't stopped flowing. I attended a Sunday afternoon tea yesterday with a friend and that was it. The cup over-floweth and I couldn't not post! So here it is with pictures and all...

It was held at a former bed and breakfast and it was just beautiful. 

Aside of the great architecture of the old house which is something I always enjoy and admire, the decorations for the tea were so sweet. 

Each table was decorated differently - some elegant, some bright and cheery, others subtle and feminine. I am currently planning a tea party for my daughter's birthday next month (her idea) and I was able to get a lot of ideas for it.

The flowers were cheerful and I am looking forward to putting arrangements together to decorate our tables. I have decided to do a table for the kids and a table for the adults using different schemes and colors. 

We admired the pretty desserts as we enjoyed peppermint, lavender, and rose teas along with scones. Then came dessert which included many options of cookies and candies - a great end to the tea in my opinion (sugar addict). 

We were able to tour the home after the tea party which was an enjoyable end to a very nice afternoon.
