I started a new tradition this year with all the Martin girls, big and little. Each year around Easter I am hosting a Tea. This is really just an excuse for us to get together, eat good food, and for me to be able to create girly decorations.
This year I went with the antique, vintage tea party. Each year I'll do something a little different, but this
year it was burlap, blacks, off whites, yellows, vintage dictionary pages, and other antiques.
I tried to do everything hand crafted and affordable.
The place mats and napkin rings are scrapbook paper and the table runner is a piece of burlap from Hobby Lobby. I used vintage items around my house to decorate the table and spray painted some frames to house my printed dictionary pages. The doilies under the plates were bright white so I painted them with acrylic art paint to match. Easy things, but all together makes a great table.
The teacup, kettle, and tea spoon sugar cookies were a custom order, but that is going to be a future post! I've discovered a gem and I'll share it with you soon!
