Baby Shower Tea Party

Last Saturday morning I had a baby shower for a dear friend, Jennifer. The theme was a tea party. My daughter loaned me a pretty bouquet of flowers to sit on the table at the front door.

I used tea pots that had belonged to my mom and a friend loaned me her tea pot.

I served tea in my friend Jennifer's grandmother's china and some pretty china cups my sister gave to me as a gift some years ago. I served English Breakfast and Earl Grey tea. Each table had a potted plant as the centerpiece. At the end of the party we gave them to Jennifer for her garden.

We had delicious petit fours and yummy cream puffs covered in powdered sugar.

My daughter, Stacy, made these beautiful strawberries. Not only are they beautiful but they were so sweet and tasted delicious!

We had delicious chicken salad on petite croissants.
Everyone, including my friend, had a great time and enjoyed the treats and tea.

I'm so glad you posted pictures. Everything looks so good. It makes me want strawberries. In fact, I think I'll go make some now!

Also, it reminded me where my SLAH platter thingy is. :)

Love you!
