a French-inspired tea party

My mom is a special lady.

She is a woman of grace and faith.

Beautiful . . . inside and out.

She loves pink . . . and frills.

She loves flowers . . .
                and all things feminine.

She appreciates and enjoys beautiful desserts . . .
                and recently re-discovered the French macaron.

. . . and so inspired my search for the perfect 
French-inspired High Tea 
in honor of her 
70th birthday

Please join me to see what I have planned for her special day!

our Venue . . .

I made reservations for an intimate group of 12 at

the Invitation . . .

High Tea ~ pink

I ordered this invitation for her birthday tea (name & date changed, of course)
Aren't they beautiful.

I bought them here.

I chose envelopes lined with gold leaf cherry blossom branches.

Beauty & whimsy . . .

I was inspired when I found these pink & gold glittered tassels.

I think they will add a charm and whimsy to her tea party.

a table setting . . . 

I adore these Cake Papers from Carol & Company.

They're a perfectly simple and elegant backdrop for our place settings. 

Centerpieces . . .

Clusters of petite white and glass bud vases down the center of the tables, 
each one holding a single soft pink or creme flower.

Dessert . . .

A beautiful birthday cake . . . perhaps a pink Ruffle Cake by Cameo Cake Company.

Guest favors . . . 
. . . a small box of Macarons for each guest to take home. 

Edible gold paint and glitter has stolen my heart, 
and I think it will steal my mom's heart too.

Loverly. Cupcakes for Breakfast. Lily Love Lock.

And finally, satin pink ribbon and a Merci gift tag for the favor boxes.

I even love the idea of dressing up my mom's chair with something pretty!
