Tea Party

Right when I came back from NYC I had to prep for a bridal shower that I was throwing. Unlike most wedding-related events, I spent most of my time on the decorations/favors/everything else and not so much on the food. However, I did manage to knock out a few things the night before. It was a tea party brunchy lunch, so aside from your standard tea sandwiches and deviled eggs...

- cheddar dill scones (barefoot contessa's recipes are perfect shower food)
- olive oil rosemary cake
- mushroom, leek, and gorgonzola quiche
- green tea cupcakes w/ cream cheese frosting
- earl gray tea cupcakes w/ orange blossom buttercream

Most of these are not firsts, but quite fitting for bridal shower fare. The favors were jars of swedish fish (the bride loves her gummies). After the jump are many photos of flowers because I was just so proud that my lack of flower arranging abilities produced such satisfactory results. =)
