Sorry for the grainy picture. I don't know how to use my camera yet.
One of the reasons my blog posts have been few and far between lately, is that a lot of my time and energy was focused on a surprise 50th birthday celebration I was helping throw for my wonderful MIL.
The planning crew, which included SIL M and AIL, decided the theme would be "Tea Party". There's this wonderful restaurant near our place called "The Tea Room" which MIL frequents and loves, so we ran with that idea.
The hardest part of the planning process was not accidentally slipping about the party! I sooo wanted to post pictures of the invitations and some ideas we had, but I know she reads this blog!
The party was a complete success and we all had a wonderful time wearing pearls and eating little desserts.
Any words I write won't do the party justice, so I've compiled a few of my favorite pictures:
Picture of the invitation. I made a little pocket to insert a real tea bag with each invite.
We made a few poms to hang around the room.
A dear friend, L, let us borrow her beautiful teacup collection, so each guest had their own teacup!
