A while ago I was just enchanted by Vanessa Valencia's A Fanciful Twist Costumed Tea Party. Thank you Vanessa. I love your imagination and your colourful blog, and Colette for the link :)
It has been decided that some time after 10 a.m.(girls after my own heart) -these girls will arrive at my front door and the festivities of the day will begin. Based on the activity level I am anticipating, I won't even have to clean the house first! We will make a trip to the Bulk Barn and choose our toppings and return to create cupcakes of splendor.
Even if, as one of the troupe does, you have to go and get your "back-to-school" shots (yikes) you can come later. What better way to soothe your soul than to look forward to cupcakes? We will have tea and cupcakes in the garden...or (in the words of one wise child)....in the house if there are too many wasps.
We won't be making our own cups out of paper as Vanessa did. I have so many antique cups and saucers, I'm sure we'll find something suitable. After all, we intend to drink "gallons" of tea. The decorating will be up to the girls to do. I'll be the photographer and the go-to person to make sure all the frills are available.
Seeing from Vanessa's party that bubbles are de rigeur as well! --- Outside it will be.
[There are a few moms and dads in the neighborhood (whose permission has been ever so 'gratefully' granted - it is the end of summer after all) that are looking forward to any leftovers!!]
