peaches + cream kitchen tea!

 
 
this kitchen tea was ALOT of work! it was so so so gorgeous but unfortunately there was so much to do that i didn't have time to take photos :( !! here are a few pics that i managed to snap and here are the details...

the kitchen tea for 30 guests was held in a beautiful house in woollhara, on a lovely sunday may afternoon... *sigh*
nathalie made the most gorgeous invitation and papergoods based on her oh-so sweet range and i made a single tier version of my pink lace peony cake to match. other sweets included; vanilla bean cupcakes, lemon meringue tarts, vanilla bean scones, french macarons, sugar cookies, turkish delight, honey meringues and bon bons.
the tea selection included- english breakfast, chamomile, peppermint, chai, china jasmine, madagascan vanilla, strawberry and cream and peach! i sourced all the extra bits and pieces that i needed like tea pots, tea cups,  cake plates, vases, servingware, etc, etc all from the vintage kitchen (jo was so, so helpful!)
i used a mix of peach, pink and cream david austin roses and they just completed the sweet /vintage/ tea party look.. along with the doilies. 
and finally the drinks list.. besides all the tea .. included san pellegrino lemon and orange, sparking water and peach bellinis.... 

.... it was my perfect kind of party! when will i be invited to one.. of my parties...??!
