party fun!

Happy birthday DAD!!!

Hope you have a great day.

Also, head over to my sister's blog to see how we celebrated our mom's birthday over the weekend.

It was so much fun and Ashley has the perfect party space. I even got a little crafty and made some tassels!


It was a tea brunch, complete with assorted teas and coffee and snacks galore.

I made a few things and if you thinking about having your own tea party, these recipes are tested and approved.

Tea party snacks

Ginger sugar cookies 
Crunchy on the outside and chewy in the middle. I saw them a while back when Hannah posted her recipe and have looked for a reason to make them since. They were so good. Go. Make them now.

Ombre grahams
My sister sent me the link for these from Cookies and Cups. I love how festive they are. My used to make graham crackers with chocolate frosting when we were little. I also used the buttercream icing recipe from Cookies and cups and it was perfect.

Cucumber Tea Sandwiches
I saw these in a book my Aunt got me for Christmas a few years back, Martha Stewart's Hors d'Oeuvres Handbook. Pretty simple, cream cheese and sliced cucumbers on white bread then roll the sides in chopped chives.

Egg Salad Sandwiches
I used this recipe. (updated because I linked to the wrong recipe originally.) It was easy and delicious. I will use this recipe every time.

My sister made the most amazing scones for the party. Maybe we can all convince her to post the recipe!!

Oh, and not a recipe, but did you notice the print in the picture above? 


I designed it for party favors for the guests and now it's in the shop!

And no party is complete without a little pyro fun. The incident involved my child, a candle flame and a Tangled doll. Ashley posted pictures on the blog.

Happy Monday folks!!


  1. Every little detail of the party was so super sweet! You all did a great job celebrating your mama!

    Also, I want to eat all of those things right now.


I know it can be a little scary but go on, I'd love to hear from you!
