My friend Allison threw a Tea Party for her birthday and I must say I definitely felt like I was in another country!
She has the perfect Victorian Style home for the setting.
She picked up this sweet China set at a yard sale! This really got me excited about getting some China. Cheap China...that is...at an Estate Sale/Yard Sale
Such a cute little buffet stand! Also a thrifty find. She is amazing at finding sweet deals
She also handmade the bunting above us. Here's me and Bonnie posing in our gloves and pearls!
We learned the proper way to drink tea from the Downton Abbey Cookbook. Can't wait for the next season!
And here is the Amazing Allie. The first course was salad with her homemade dressing, then chilled raspberry soup(DELICIOUS) with a garnish, then the scones and English Cream/butter and jam, and then sandwiches(egg, ham and cheese, and cucumber) with the crusts cut off. Then we finished off with some dessert. She is about to cut her birthday cake/tart. It was so fun! Oh and her husband dressed in tails and was our butler. What a trooper!
