Auntie Carrie's Bridal Tea

We hosted Auntie Carrie's Bridal Tea at Cedarhurst Mansion today. What a lovely place! We brought a few decorations along with us, but for the most part it was a turn-key process. Alex was the only young lady in attendance-- and did a fabulous job for a four year old at her first 'real' tea! Her favorite part (aside from helping Auntie Carrie open presents) was drinking the tea-- pouring just the right amount of cream and carefully transferring a sugar cube into the delicate teacup!

The entry table- hand-calligraphed placecards (Alex's is missing.... she couldn't STAND waiting!), a framed copy of the tea invite, some gorgeous orchids and some antique teacups/saucers from (Great)Grandma Alice.

A group of lovely ladies!
