Even with the icy weather conditions that came in on Friday, we still had LK's tea party on Saturday morning. Really, just because the girl was in tears by Friday afternoon in fear that her party would be canceled. She's been anxiously awaiting this party since Christmas! So, between LK crying and the other little girls being upset that they might not get to go.. the party went on! Luckily, most of the little girls and family members were able to brave the streets and make it! Although, we definitely missed the ones who weren't able to!
I was up till about midnight finishing the last of the decorating and was awake again at 3am to start baking! I was able to send Chris to Kroger early Saturday morning to get scones, muffins and turnovers - I was SO glad that I didn't have to make those! He also went and picked up LK's Petite Fours! They were absolutely gorgeous!! I am so happy we chose to get them instead of a cake! Perfect for a tea party!
Everyone started arriving around 11:30 and it was just adorable to watch all the little girls come inside in their dress up clothes! We made everything as fancy as we could, and of course had pink everywhere in site!
The food was delicious! We had Quiche Lorraine, Tea Biscuits w/ Jellies, Cucumber Dill Toasties, fruit, chicken salad on crossaints and chicken salad on apples. As well as the pastries Chris picked up! It was all just so yummy! My sweet grandmother even handed down her silver trays to me a little early, so I could use them for the party! :)
I made menu cards for all the food items!
The cutest petite fours!!
Sweet Miss G!
The girl's table! We pulled out Great Great Grandma Luttrell's china and Great Grandma Kessler's Crystal Goblets! It was just adorable! And so sweet that we could have a little bit of all the Grandma's with us!
The cake pops in the center are from Bakerella's recipe! They were absolutely DELISH! (and super easy to make!)
