Kerrie and I recently held a Valentine's Day Tea party.
We came up with the idea a month ago when we were shopping at a Victorian tea shop and stumbled upon their gorgeous tea room. When we found out it was available for rent, we immediately started planning.
We had a sleepover the night before and made cupcakes, finger food, sangria, and gift bags for our guests.
The party was a lovely success. It was sweet to see 20 of our closest friends all together for the first time. Everyone got along splendidly. Our favorite part was when we all discussed our worst dates ever. Many of them were hilarious! We all voted on who had the worst date. The winner received a giant gift bag, which included a scarf made by Kerrie, gourmet chocolates, and a beautiful picture frame.
(My Jonny was the only gentleman invited to the party. He wore his vintage 1950s Cary Grant-inspired outfit. Isn't he dashing?)
(FYI: My adorable friend Robin is actually a fashion blogger I met on this site! We were blogging buddies for a really long time until we realized a year or so ago that we lived in the same city. We've since become good friends! You should check out her awesome blog Carrie Bradshaw Made Me Do It. She also won our Worst Date giveaway at the party. Hehe.)
Kerrie invited the little girl who she nannies. So cute!
(I invited my little half-Indian mini-me. Her mama and I were college friends before she was even imagined.)
Oh, and by now you might have noticed Kerrie and I wore matching outfits. Aren't we cute?!?
