Afternoon Tea

Happy first day of Spring, everyone.

I hope you had the chance to enjoy the sunshine. In true Spring fashion, I was sporting my flip flops this morning while running errands and I spent the rest of the afternoon pruning in my garden for the very first time (eek!). I love this time of year when neighbours emerge from the hollows of winter hibernation & mingle in the cul-de-sac. Welcome Spring!

I felt that this pretty tablescape (found on Mary & Gabrielle's event blog) was the perfect way to welcome the season and remind us all that meals (& teas) al fresco aren't too far off.

They may not have included a single tea cup or saucer in this design but I feel it would be the perfect setting for afternoon tea. After all, what goes better with delicious cakes and cupcakes than tea?

I just adore the mix of girly details and rustic elements in the afternoon sunshine. It's a perfect setting for a shower or birthday luncheon. I've said it before and I'll say it again: I will never tire of chandeliers hung in trees. Perfection.

{I'm pretty sure I love this tablescape so much because it reminds me of this garden wedding}.

How did you celebrate the first weekend of Spring?
