Where have I been all week? Well planning for my soon-to-be sister-in-law’s bridal Garden Tea Party of course! We had a lovely time. My sister and I hosted at our parents home. Countless hours of planning, cooking, arranging, borrowing, and putting together, but it was all worth it…
My sister purchased several antique tea tins and I chose and arranged the flowers.
Cucumber and dill butter, smoked salmon with capers, and curried egg salad sandwiches
White bean and tomato salad
Just to name a few…
And of course, dessert!
One of the most charming elements of the party was that we all wore hats! One of my mom’s dearest and oldest friend’s (and my “adopted” aunt!) has an amazing hat collection and she generously outfitted those of us who might otherwise be hatless. It was so much fun I kept changing mine.

And the end of the party…
I was sad to say good bye to all the lovely hats!
So… I was allowed to keep just a few for future hatted excursions.
Ladies we should all start wearing hats again!
