Halloween Tea 2011

Hello Blogger Friends!

I wanted to share a few pictures of my cute jars I made to hold my little Halloween sprinkles and I have some great pictures of the Halloween tea party I had with my mom and my special guest Sherry.

This first jar is for the silver sprinkles I used on the ghost cupcakes you will see later! I love the silver eyelash trim on this jar. This next jar is for the little bones sprinkles. I tied cheesecloth around it to make a bow and added a spooky spider.

This jar is for the cute pumpkin sprinkles that I will use soon to decorate some cute Halloween cookies.

This jar is for the black and white skull sprinkles. It is my favorite jar because I love the trim I used. I pulled it off of a lamp I bought a long time ago and reused it! It looks much better on the jar.

Here are all of the jars together. I think they turned out so cute!Here is the tea table after I got it all set and decorated just before my guests arrived.

Here is the place setting I used. It is some beautiful silver-rimmed china with a black dessert plate. I tied a black and white gingham ribbon around the napkins. It was really simple but it looked really pretty.

The centerpiece was black glittered witch silhouette candle holders and another beautiful silver candle holder on a black tray. I love the black and clear gems in the tray. Everything was perfectly coordinated!

I made each of my guests a special gift basket. I got the containers at Hobby Lobby and added the silver pipe cleaner for a handle. I added trim and I made the cute "Happy Halloween" medallion out of crepe paper, tulle, and card stock.

I filled each basket with a small candle and hand sanitizer from Bath and Body Works, a Halloween cookie cutter, some fall candy corn snack mix in a cute bag, and some pieces of Halloween candy. The baskets turned out SO cute!

I made lots of yummy food too! I made these cute ghost cupcakes, some orange jello salad, turkey and Swiss roll-up sandwiches, and . . .

these cute mini pumpkin pies! They were so tasty with their spooky chocolate faces! My mom made a delicious pasta salad and I served some caramel apple tea. We had a wonderful time!

I was so blessed to have a special guest. Miss Sherry is the sweetest heart I have ever met and I am thankful for her friendship! I am also thankful to have a sweet, wonderful mom to share these special times with. It wouldn't be the same without her at my tea parties.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my Halloween Tea Party. Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think! I hope you have a blessed weekend!

Love Tammy

  7. Loved the setting. Everything looked so cute. Just perfect for a tea. And your jars. Just too cute .

    Nice to meet your friend. It is so fun to get together with your on-line friends. I have met a few of mine in our travels. It was like we had always known each other.


  8. Hi Tammy Sweetie...
    Oh what a beautiful evening we had. You and your sweet Momma, Ginger are definitely the hostess(es) with the mostess.

    What love and laughter we shared. Memories to last a lifetime. I cannot begin to thank you enough. I hope one day you will get out here to Phoenix, so that I can return the favor as well. I am going to be blogging the tea this weekend. I can't wait to share.

    Please stop by my blog. You have got to see what I bought today. I named her Miss Minnie and she was a steal at $40.00. I love her so much. I am working on a costume for her. She too, is going to set by the front door, as Miss Molly looked so gorgeous greeting your friends.

    Again thank you sweet friend, thank you. I have my little basket adorning my table and so many have asked where it came from.

    Have a glorious weekend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
