Wonderland Birthday Tea Party

It’s been almost a year since my baby’s first birthday.  But I wanted to share a few photos from her party before she turns two next month.  I am not really a “theme” type person and I don’t really care for all the fluffy kid’s cartoon stuff.  So, I chose to do a whimsical tea party, Wonderland inspired. I designed her invitation and many of the printed details on the food table. A big thanks to my sister and mother for helping me put the final touches together.

We Can Have Tea Parties Too

On Sunday, I had the pleasure of attending a small Tea Party at my sister’s place. It’s not often you get invited to an event like this — at least here in America. A couple weeks ago, I got the cutest invitation designed by my sister, Dena Swenson. The party itself proved to be just as cute as her invite, if not more. She used vintage tea cups she inherited or found second-hand. The food spread was to die for — cucumber sandwiches, meat & cheese on crackers, and sweet treats galore — including fresh strawberries,  fruit thumbprints, biscotti and scones. And of course, a wide array of teas including tea brought back from England by our Mother, and some Trader Joe’s Christmas flavors. I only wish I was a better photographer so I could show you how delightful everything was.
