Pink Tea Party

This last weekend I celebrated my 40th birthday in style; a girly pink party with cupcakes ! I will share some close ups that the fab miss delis took of this table

and here’s what I served:

Red Velvet Cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, Vanilla cupcakes with chocolate swiss meringue buttercream, Chocolate cupcakes with strawberry swiss meringue buttercream, Marshmellow Pops, Cupcake Cookies, Chocolate covered cookies (only thing not made by me),
Croissants with parmaham, cream cheese and strawberries, Sandwiches with cucumber and cream cheese, salmon with cream cheese and mozzerella with pesto and tomato, Candy Floss

I made the cute “Keep Calm” posters @ this website.

 

And my garland was cute too with white cake doilies and pink tissue pompoms.

Spring Tea party

This weekend my mother celebrated her birthday, a week earlier because of mothersday, and hosted a high tea for the occasion. Last year I got ill and wasn’t able to help her with decorations and baking but this year it all came together perfectly.

 

 

 

 

 

We served lots of green & yellow candy, scones, vanilla & chocolate cupcakes, apple cinnamon muffins, banana bread muffins, mini club sandwiches, salmon sandwiches, cucumber sandwiches, chocolate, cookies, strawberries, mini pigs in a blanket and quiches.

 

 

 

A few things went wrong with the scones (they were intentionally smaller but I had a hard time figuring out the baking time since it wasn’t my oven I had to throw quite a few out) and the cupcake toppings (i forgot to bring my mixer along so i didn’t think it tasted ok enough but the guests seemed to like it).
