gorgeous kitchen tea part 2

in addition to enjoying an amazingly beautiful afternoon tea, the guests also made bath tea bags! this is such a great idea for an activity!
romi explained- "guests were given a little instruction card to make up their own mixtures of bath teas or they could follow our suggested recipes .... we had oatmeal, lavender, rose petals, goats milk powder, lemon verbena, orange peel, epsom salts and jugs of various yummy essential oils. The idea was they could mix, blend and create whatever fragrance they liked. I then heat sealed the bags and gave back to them (in the little brown heart bags you see pictured) to enjoy in their baths at home. It was a huge success!!"

*sigh* i am still sighing over these photos!!

i was SO excited when these arrived in my mail box (my real mail box) yesterday! i knew the photos were going to be gorgeous but not THIS GORGEOUS!
there are just too many pics to choose from so i will do another post tomorrow... anyway a little while ago i worked with romi from bo peep productions (bopeepproductions AT gmail DOT com) on this amazing kitchen tea that she styled. she arranged the most beautiful party and i made a variety of  white + rustic style sweets to suit. the sweets list included a vanilla bean buttercream cake, cake pops, vanilla + coconut macarons, scones, profiteroles, belgian white chocolate rocky road, lemon glazed knot cookies, white chocolate apples and sponge rolls... all for a VERY long table- phew!
