Don't you wish afternoon high tea was still an every day thing? I sometimes think I was born in the wrong era! I was inspired to throw a tea party for some girlfriends of mine on a Sunday afternoon and I decided to team up with Up Your Ally Designs to have Ally (owner) design some custom invitations for me. When I received these invites in the mail they were just perfect! I love the calligraphy address label and each invitation looks like they were hand painted. Enjoy the post and to find out how to get a discount from Up Your Ally Designs scroll to the bottom.
Aren't the RSVP cards just adorable? The tea party was a success! I served Ruby Sipper and Chai Tea Lattes with cupcakes, muffins, scones, a cheeseboard, sausage and bacon. Below is a recipe for the perfect blueberry muffin to go along with your tea.
