INVITATION TO A VALENTINE TEA WEDDING
Feeling a bit of extra romance this Valentine's Day? Enough to lay out all the fine china? Pictured here are some of the one-of-a-kind details that make up a high tea wedding. Teatime is my number one fav theme for the reason it incorporates some of the most lady-like elements of entertaining, fashion and decor. This polished and sophisticated late afternoon mini-meal over the centuries has become the perfect showcase for delectable little sandwiches and scrumptious petits fours framed by white lace doilies. Once upon a time high tea was celebrated by really enjoying those afternoon hours before sunset, the perfect time for a wedding celebration. While high tea suggests all the formality of a big wedding it's also perfect for the informal celebration. You can keep it simple and at the same time elegant serving finger sandwiches, small pastries, tea and champagne, buffet style. Whether you're planning a large or small wedding I hope these images are an inspiration point for you . . . .
