|We paired our menu items with our |
favorite Beatrix Potter characters.
(Lindsey's boyfriend kindly drew
impromptu illustrations on our
tea party signage)
|A darling Beatrix Potter cupcake kit |
with cupcake paper liners and toothpicks
was the perfect decoration for
Mr. McGregor's carrot cupcakes.
|We were not brave enough to attempt making our scones|
from scratch, so we purchased Sticky Fingers cranberry
scone mix - the next best thing! We did spring for
homemade devonshire cream though :)
|Our menu included one of our |
favorite childhood recipes: mud pies
named in our nephew's honor.
|Our tea buffet|
|We purchased an eclectic mix of tea cups and invited guests|
to take their tea cups home with them as a tea party favor.
|We personalized the tea cups with each guest's name.|
|Our baby shower tea favor included a tiny tin of Muggswigz |
Earl Grey tea. We decorated the tins with green jute ribbon
and Peter Rabbit gift tags.
|Our father, master gardener and |
landscaper extraordinaire, designed
baskets that perfectly complemented
our Peter Rabbit theme.
Thanks to Etsy's vendors and Pottery Barn Kids for their lovely selection of Beatrix Potter decorations :)
