Afternoon tea on a rainy day

6 09 2008

This afternoon I attended a baby shower and tea party for Elizabeth—a friend, neighbor, and “Weedette” in my Garden Club. Her first child, Baby “Snapdragon,” is due October 6. Elizabeth’s favorite colors are pink and green, so her friends decorated the party in that color scheme. Her friend hosting the party has worked as a caterer, so the food was delicious and beautifully presented, too. Elizabeth’s friend, Susan, a graphic designer, made the invitations, name tags, party favor hang tags, and a beautiful handmade guest book. Party favors included a white teapot-shaped teabag holder, a teabag, a baby carriage-shaped cookie, and a little tin of mints—all carrying the pink and green theme throughout. While I took a fair amount of people shots, I especially enjoyed photographing the flowers, decorations, and appetizers. Thanks for including me in your celebration, Elizabeth!
