Monthly Vision Boards: Party Planning Inspiration

I do apologize that I haven’t been posting as regularly as I did in the past.  I am reworking my brand, and at the same time I have had a great many dance job offers out of the blue (which I am absolutely loving!!).
I’d rather not post fluff just to post, and instead post things that I am really passionate about.  I am trying to have more of a variety of everything I love.. and that’s a lot, so bear with me while I work this all out.
One thing I love is party planning.  I don’t know about you, but I love entertaining.  It’s been hard moving to a totally new state, 1,000 miles from everyone you knew, but at the same time I am meeting a lot of fun and wonderful people.  Since we moved into a way larger place, I have been brainstorming about great themed parties again.  So, I am bringing you an inspiration board for a party each and every month.
This month I am featuring a Mother’s Day Tea Party, which I will post on Wednesday.  Come back to see it then!
Let’s go back in time today…… (cue that wavy dream sequence where I tilt my head in pensive thought).
Years back I had a little vintage 40’s and 50’s inspired tea party.  I invited a few close women and we had a nice afternoon of relaxing and girl talk.
The vision was a super feminine, frilly, and delicate party with childhood delights in mind.
I created a Spring menu:


And set the table with pastels.  You can see some of my etsy creations were alive and well back then.


The pastel colored apple bowls were a Goodwill find.  And I created my own cloth napkins, and embellished them with a vintage brooch.
It was also my best friend’s birthday, so I made a 4 layer pastel cake.  I decorated the top with some colored chocolate hearts that I made from a chocolate mold.


Favors included a small candy buffet….
and these very prize puff inspired carry out boxes full of small girly trinkets.
It was a fun afternoon, and I miss my best friend and her mom (my Ma B) but friends are always close in our hearts!
Tune in Wednesday to see my Mother’s Day Tea Party Vision Board!
