Easter Tea Parties

Hello Blogger Friends!

I wanted to share my sweet Easter tea party I had last weekend. My mom, grandma, and Rebecca from "A Gathering Place" came to my tea. She has a great post about the tea on her blog as well. I wanted to keep the decor light, sweet, and pink.

I just adore the centerpiece. Aren't those Easter baby angels just the sweetest things?


I filled ceramic bowls with treats for each guest and I made an ornament for each of us too!


I made these napkin rings from cardboard, scrapbook paper, vintage images, and sweet pink trim. I just love how sweet they turned out and that they matched the decor perfectly!



Here is the dessert table with all the sweets! I made Easter basket cupcakes with little Lindt bunnies and chicks. I also made marshmallow pops that were so sweet!


Here are some cookies I made that look like Easter nests with pastel eggs in the middle. I would love to see the pretty bird that laid those eggs!



I made cheesecake-filled strawberries. Mr. Rabbit guarded them well! I also made strawberry and walnut salad and chicken salad sandwiches. Everything was so delicious!

The best part of the tea was my company. Here is my sweet Mom, Ginger. She is a very talented lady and passed her love of creating on to me. I am so blessed to have her for my mom.

My grandma Mary came too! All of the grandkids have called her Nanny for as long as I can remember. She passed her love of creating and making things beautiful and special on to my mom. She is a very sweet grandma and I am blessed to have her too!

My dear, sweet friend Rebecca joined us for tea this time. I was so honored and blessed to have her company. She is a very talented, beautiful, loving lady. She encourages and inspires me and I am blessed to know her and to call her my friend. She has a daughter that is about my age and she was going to come but did not. I hope I get to meet her soon. If she is anything like her momma, I know I will like her a lot. I am planning another fun tea party this summer . . . definitely iced tea, and I hope they both can come back!

I had such a fun time planning and hosting this tea. All of the resources required to have a tea are so worth it after it is over, because of the beautiful memories that have been made. I know I will never forget this one!

Then the next day we celebrated Easter with Maggie and Lucie. We got the girls an Easter basket and filled them with goodies. They were so happy and excited when they found them under the Easter tree.




I redressed the table with new linens, dishes, and a sweet centerpiece. Everything looked so fresh and Eastery with all the sweet pastel hues everywhere!


I filled the bowls with some different Easter treats for each guest. A few years ago I made those sweet bunny napkin holders and I just adore them. I even sewed little white whiskers on each one!




We enjoyed our time together celebrating Easter as a family. I love this picture of all of us together.



I hope you all have a wonderful, blessed Easter holiday and are able to make many sweet memories with your family!


Many Blessings to You!

Love Tammy

  6. Oh, My. How very charming and sweet---I started with the link from Pink Saturday to your Mom's blog, told her how much I loved the Tea Party, then ventured on over to see more of your beautiful handiwork.

    Though I started with the post above, I just kept reading and looking on down, down, and it's all just so lovely. I've joined your group and will return soon to delve into your exquisite archives for more.
