A Mad Hatter’s Tea Party!

I love sharing tea with lovely ladies and boysies 🙂

Building a teacup collection is so much more enjoyable when you can actually use the teacups and share tea with friends!

Yesterday I celebrated my 39th birthday with my closest family and friends.

Here are some scenes from the celebration. I will be sure to write another post including costume pics and recipes…

    Happy Birthday for yesterday Melissa…it is so true that when you lovingly collect china pieces there is nothing more special than sharing it with loved ones. The food looks amazing as do the table settings xoxo
