Tablescapes, Special Occasion Tea Party

These gorgeous tea tag creations, made by Marcia Pilar, were my inspiration for this Special Occasion Tea Party Table

vintage tags

The tags feature incredible details, tiny punched out patterns and glittered corners, and I wanted to incorporate them into an elegant setting~

A lovely tea is perfect for many occasions, Valentine’s Day comes to mind this time of year… but a tea is a great way to celebrate a lot of different things, birthdays, anniversaries, Mother’s Day


Many parties revolve around flowers, and sweets and fanciful things…

I decided to just get some fancy out and set a little tea table, with sweets and hearts, silver and flowers, and my gorgeous “tea tags”

You don’t have to have huge bouquets of flowers


With just a few blooms here and there you can create magic

Also when you mix good faux flowers with real ones, they tend to seem real too, like the roses and hydrangea in the photo above [far left]

    Happy birthday to Jan! How wonderful, Jenna, for you to give your sister a virtual tea party. I love the pink rose topiary. Can’t tell if it’s real or not, but that’s the point, right? All your paintings are so pretty and your sweet treats look scrumptious! Enjoy!

  7. Very pretty presentation and I would love to find a tablecloth like that. Guess I need to shop BBB more often!
