Party #1 of the Day - Bridal Shower

This was a party filled week.  I hosted two parties at our house on Saturday.  Everyone always tells me how crazy I am but I love it!

The first party was a tea party bridal shower for a girl in our ward.  I had been her Beehive advisor, her mom is my friend and Jim works with her dad.  Charlotte had also been on the Theater Study Abroad program that Tessa was on so we decided to have a tea party since she had just been in London.

We had traditional tea party food - tea sandwiches, scones, lemon curd, devonshire cream,shortbread, lemon bars as well as chocolate dipped strawberries and a yummy broccoli/pasta salad

I had recently painted this fun polka dot tablecloth and wanted to use it for the party so I also made up a neutral pennant banner to use and went with a all white/offwhite color scheme

 Three sisters!

 We made a cute little hat/bouquet out of the ribbons from the gifts.

 I made the fun chalkboard party backdrop from an old classroom retractable map!

 After the guests left I started cleaning up and getting ready for party #2!!
