Birthday Tea Party

Last weekend, one of my good friend reached a milestone birthday. Instead of entertaining a traditional dinner, I decided to host a birthday tea with some of our friends. It was a beautiful afternoon to sit in the garden with the rose garden in full bloom while sipping tea, indulging in fine pastries and catching up with friends.

The tables were set with the birthday girl's favorite color (hot pink) flowers. Multiple tables were set with different china. As we all know, it is difficult being a host and a photographer.
