I mentioned earlier this week that I actually helped put together two different parties last December…merely days apart! Yesterday I shared pictures of the Cookies & Milk party we had for the little ones last Christmas. The next party was actually a birthday tea celebrating the 60th birthday of one of my husband’s aunts. I still love the way the party came together, since it made good use of Christmas colors, without being overtly seasonal.
The buffet; filled with macarons, tea sandwiches, tea breads, eclairs, fruit tartlets, alfajores (a latin american treat), and berries with mascarpone cream.
|The dining table was set with fine china, fresh roses, and lots of pink and red!|
|The birthday cake was pretty in pink ruffles with pictures of the birthday girl from throughout her youth.|
|Instead of getting an expensive tea chest, use a fabric jewelry tray…this one was covered in leftover burlap that had been dyed red to match.|
|The guests each got to take home teacup favors filled with candied pecans.|
