My little sister is getting married in February, and as maid of honour, it was my duty (and pleasure!) to organise a Kitchen Tea for her.
She’s crystal mad and a real girly girl, so I knew in my mind exactly how I wanted the tea to come together. I envisioned a whimsical garden party, that was quite traditional but still had enough sparkles to satisfy.
So, with a lot of preparation and some major help from the ladies in my family, we managed to put together an afternoon full of pink favours and sparkly treats for the bride to be.
Here’s a look:
I wanted to set the tone right from the get go, and these gorgeous and whimsy invites did just that. We bought these and had the customised via Etsy. Check out the SetTheDateInvites store by clicking here.
White tables with mismatched flowers as a centrepiece. White, pink and silver pom poms adorn the trees.
The centrepieces, up close. We bought mismatched bunches of pink and white flowers, and displayed them in glass jars of varying sizes. Add some tiny sparkle scatters and some butcher paper for guests to write on, and you’ve just a multi-functional and beautiful centrepiece!
Pink and white marshmallows made for the perfect table centrepiece
It’s all in the details. Pink meringues, turkish delight and finger sandwiches made for a stunning spread. Add to that heart tissue paper table scatters from Pom Love on Etsy and you’ve got a tea to remember.
A special touch for the bridal party. We made a little tag for each member of the bridal party to wear on the day.
From Miss to Mrs. We bought this sign from a party store and had letters printed at a local sign store, owned by my aunty and uncle.

The very best touch was something we couldn’t prepare ourselves – an afternoon full of sunshine! Thank you to the weather gods for ticking that off the list for us.
