Ladies' Tea ~ Vintage Paris Table

This morning was our church's annual ladies' tea. This was my first year hosting a table, and it was a lot of fun! I had several friends sit at my table and none of us are etiquette experts, praise the Lord. Here are some pics.

I was so happy with how it all turned out! Here's where I found everything:

Coffee and tea pots - eBay
Dishes- wedding gift
Silverware - wedding gift
Napkins - gift from my grandma
Glasses- Dollar Tree
Tablecloth - Wal-Mart
Chocolate favors - Le Chocolat du Bouchard
Centerpiece - my own collection/library

Mom helped me come up with a way to artfully arrange my six antique French books for the centerpiece. (They were the only "vintage" thing I had.) 

Welcome to Paris! Have a cup of tea and a scone. ;)

I also had a lot of fun scouring tons of napkin fold ideas for my mom's table. I ended up picking this one, and after adding the gem to the center, it really turned into a flower! I was so excited with how they turned out.


  1. Thanks again for inviting me, that was fun! :)

  2. Oo la la! Lovely tables! Wish I was there! :)
