Tuesday’s post featured my current favorite cake recipe: The Chocolate Coconut Dream Cake. So where did I take my most recent cake? To my beloved friend Stephanie’s birthday party!
Stephanie rang in the big 2-4 with the classiest tea party I had ever seen. She made the obligatory tiny sandwiches (goat cheese & cucumber, and salmon & cream cheese), raspberry tartlets, homemade sangria (putting the PARTY into tea party!), and my personal favorite: MINI PIES.
My favorite thing about the Mini-pies (aside from the fact that I got my own pie all to myself, and a mini-pie has way more crust than a normal slice of pie. YESSSSS) is that she was able to make tons of different flavors really easily. There were blackberry apricot, pluot & berry, pear, the list goes on.
Other friends contributed homemade scones, decorations, and flowers. It was truly a very classy party. The decorations were adorable vintage tea and cake stands, vintage china, and of course, a good helping of lace and crochet everywhere.
Why don’t people throw more tea parties? I want to start a book club now, where we don’t actually read books but we really just eat crumpets and put lemon curd on everything. Stephanie, your domestic prowess inspires me–now pinkies up, let’s throw another tea party soon!
