As previously mentioned we had a tea party recently so alas their has been an abundance of left over cakes!
So what a great opportunity to have a little tea party outside last night.
Delicious coffee and walnut cake made by Scrum Diddly.
Was the sun shining?
actually I'm not sure it was,
but it didn't really matter.
It's raining now.
Loving the flowers brought from the local Women's Institute.
I so love these pink peonies!
And I mustn't forget the awesome chocolate truffles made by neighbour Ollie!
I have been counting them as my cheeky better half keeps on making them disappear!
Are they really for sharing?
Ok they are, but just a few!
And of course, no tea party experience is complete without the presence of beautiful Chris and her vintage outfits!
Top from Topshop,
Skirt from Anthropologie.
Thank you Chris so so so much for all your help with Fancy Vintage,
You amaze me with your enthusiasm and helpfulness!
And washing up skills!
Teapot from Vintage Tea Party from Bombay duck
and of course,
That lovely pink floral plate is from Pip studio!
A lovely present from my gorgeous sister Rachel.
I don't get to see her much unfortunately as she lives so far away but she knows me so so so so well!
Thanks for my favourite birthday present Rach.
And also for the teacup and saucer in the same pink pattern.
I am so lucky!
Now I have two Pip Studio side plates.
A blue one from my mom and pink one from my sister.
I love May.
It is usually the start of the exciting summer months.
I can't wait to have more cups of tea outside.
Bring on the sunshine.
We all need it.
It has been a roller coaster month for me.
And for a lot of people I know.
I know a few that have lost special ones recently.
And my big massive heart goes out to them.
Sending up some enormous special prayers this week.
We can never have enough of those!
