Spring Time Pretties

Happy Pink Saturday my friends! I wanted to share some spring pretties I have made and the pictures of my spring tea party I had last weekend with my mom and grandma. Below is a picture of a sweet bird pillow I made last weekend. I think it turned out so sweet. The image on the pillow matches my blog wallpaper! Here is a closer look! Isn't it so tweet?
Here is a picture of the ribbon and flower detail. I love the soft pastel colors. So springy!

Here are a few jars I decorated for the pretty cupcake sprinkles inside. I will be making a few more for an Easter display. I can't wait to show you the rest!

Here is a closer look. Aren't they so pretty?

Here is the table scape for the spring tea party I had last weekend. I love those green dishes!

I made all kinds of yummy food for our time together. I was full before I got to taste everything.

I made fruit and yogurt parfaits and sprinkled granola on top. It was delicious!

I made some coconut nests and sweet bird egg cupcakes too!

Here is a close up of the cupcakes. They are Jelly Belly beans that look like bird eggs just for spring!

Aren't these nests adorable? They were tasty too!

The chocolate candy eggs almost look real! They were perfect for these nests!

My mom made some apricot and white chocolate chip scones and she make lemon curd to go with them. They were delicious and I was so glad there were leftovers because I had more the next day!

This is the main dish, a Spanish omelet made with mushrooms, red bell peppers, and potatoes. It was so delicious!

The best part of the tea was the company! My mom brought me a sweet gift. It was a mini book with birds and nests on it. It is so cute! She also brought me a cup and spoon she used when feeding me as a baby. I am so thankful to have those things and it was so thoughtful of her to give them to me.

My Nanny came too and I am so thankful that she was there. They are both really wonderful ladies and I am so thankful I belong to them.

Our spring tea was a great opportunity to indulge in some great lemon tea, some delicious food, and some great conversation. We had a great time together.

I hope you all have the time to enjoy a lovely cup of tea and to reflect on the blessings and beauty of spring. Happy Pink Saturday!

Blessings to You!

Love Tammy
