Party Recap

This was an intimate formal afternoon tea with all the trimmings: fine china, gold-rimmed crystal, antique silver, and hand-embroidered linens.
The party decor was inspired by the nursery which featured a cherry blossom motif. Colors were pink, ivory & brown. Instead of flowers, we opted for a more sleek and modern look with handmade ribbon balls in clear crystal cylinders.
