Tea Anyone?

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!
