Big Girls Tea Party

Tea parties are for big girls too! It’s not very often that I get a chance to catch up with my girls, so when it happens it’s always a special occasion worthy of celebrating. A chance to get out a pretty tablecloth, some vintage china and lovely glassware.

Our celebration today had a little bit of a French feel with baguettes, terrine, pâté, cheeses, salmon tarts and mini quiches. For Desert we had apricot and almond tart, assorted macarons, fruit and blush biscotti. Of course there was champagne for what celebration would be complete without a few bubbles.

A lovely relaxing afternoon with laughter and conversation. To all my friends who weren’t there today and to those who live too far away (Trish, Rachel, Judy & Bea) I raise my glass to you. Viva la sisterhood – where would we be without friends?

About embracingtheimperfections

I am a mother of six children. My children's ages range from 20 down to 1, so we are dealing with a lot of different ages and stages, not to mention a lot of different personalities. One of my twins has cerebral palsy so that adds yet another dimension to our lives. Along my journey so far I have learnt that life is far from perfect and that sometimes it's the imperfections that round out the harsh edges and give it a quality that is precious and unique. My love of the imperfect extends into my home life too. I love all things vintage, hand crafted, home grown and home cooked. I love to be creative and I love learning. I am definitely not a minimalist! I aspire to be tidy and organized but I am realizing that with six children, three cats and a crazy black Labrador that is probably beyond my capabilities, so I embrace the beautiful chaos that ensues!
