I had the best idea for my mom for Mother's Day this year. I have been giddy for weeks as I've put it all together. I combined a few of her favorite things including pretty dishes, floral, books, Jane Austen, and tea parties and put together a Tea Party Kit, housed in a vintage green suitcase. I added thrifted teacups/saucers, paper doilies, pink paper plates for goodies, a floral tablecloth, and some vintage silver spoons.
I put my silver stamping to good use again and stamped "I Love Butter" onto a silver butter knife. My mother and Julia Childs are of one mind when it comes to butter usage. I also stamped four teaspoons with tea-type words. If there is such a thing.
I wrapped up a couple of surprises, like a vintage entertaining/cook book and a small journal.
And finally, I tucked some of her favorite herbal teas and two berry baskets into a corner.
Now all she needs to do is add water (plus three friends, a table, a pretty hat and some goodies). *Sigh* I think I need to have a tea party. I shall be searching for my own set of vintage teacups/saucers.
