High Tea

Hello and welcome back from the weekend! Did ya'll enjoy your past couple of days off?

It snowed about 6-8 inches here on Saturday and again yesterday, so needless to say, it was a frigid weekend in Northwest Arkansas. Guess the coats, scarfs and gloves will have to stay out a while more, sigh...

The freezing temps and blizzard-like conditions just couldn't keep me away from the movie theater yesterday though. I finally saw Alice in Wonderland and I loved it! Perfectly whimsical and signature Tim Burton, I drank up every moment of it like a glass of sweet tea.

Which inspired me to post these fabulous tea party-related pics, today.

(From the 2003 Annie L. shoot for Vogue Magazine which featured famous designers as characters from Alice in Wonderland.)

How fun would it be to grab some of your closest girlfriends and have a tea party this spring?

You'd need a pretty tablescape...

...and some cookies, or better yet, some pastel-colored macaroons.

Some beautiful flowers could work as a centerpiece...

...maybe some like these!

You could invite Kate Moss and two random guys with mohawks...

...or just your best girl friend.

And don't forget to wear these heels, inspired by Alice and Wonderland. No proper tea party is complete without some great foot attire.

Have you ever thrown a tea party? Who would you invite? (Note: Celebrities and non-famous people can be included)

Be blessed, lovelies-
