Tea & Celebrations

We celebrated my mom's 60th birthday two weeks ago at the lovely Bloomsbury Tea Room in Capitola.  My sisters & I wanted to do something special for this momentous occasion and a tea party seemed to fit my mom, a "T":  The dainty cups, the fancy silver, lacy linens, pretty food, hats!

I made these invitations with Indesign then printed on pre-cut card stock and finished with old wrapping paper given to me many years ago by a very good friend of my parents who has passed on.  The ties are 3/8" strips of an Amy Butler fabric.

A few photos from the party:

The party was a success and my mom is well-loved - we maxed out the room and took all the hats in the place.  All the treats are made fresh in the kitchen and the food was amazing.  I am not in these pictures because I was too busy stuffing my face with the homemade scones.

Isn't she cute? Happy birthday, Mom!

So pretty. How'd you keep the fabric ribbons from fraying?
