Hosting a tea party was the best experience. I grew up with tea parties and my grandma still throws tea parties to this day. This tea party was a true reflection of myself. Enjoy!
Huge shout out to Dani Bartley & Jenay Byrd for co-hosting this event with me. Whether it was dragging the tables and 17 chairs outside to practice or hand cutting out the tea sandwiches, they were rock stars! Also thank you to any other ladies who brought delicious food 🙂
