merry un-birthday tea 2019.

July 30, 2019

Finally, i'm delivering when I say i'm going to share something and actually share the same week! :).  I was looking through my archives (which i'll share below) and the last time I shared my unbirthday tea was 2016, and i've been hosting tea every year!  There's so much I need to post here but baby steps, today i'll be posting this year's Merry Unbirthday Tea..

Since I did it big on my golden birthday (2016) and last year for my 30th (2018), this year was going to be more lowkey.  I was having a difficult time on which tea room to host.  I was torn between two different tea rooms, one i've been to plenty times but never had a party there, second choice was a new tea room that was more for the "GRAM", rather than the actual feel and set up for a REAL afternoon tea.  After going back and forth I decided to stick with the classic and had it at Tea Rose Garden.

I've been to Tea Rose Garden countless of times but I never had hosted my birthday there before.  I thought this year would be perfect since work at the time was crazy and I knew without a doubt this tearoom would be solid and would definitely deliver.  I had in mind that the tabletop was plain white porcelain tea pots along with different floral tea cups, and dessert plates.  I was gravitating toward the color burnt orange as I knew this color would compliment well with different pastel colors.  Keeping the placecards classic in black ink tied in perfectly. While adding in hints of the burnt orange with fabric ribbon.

As for the cake, I was really attracted towards lady fingers, as this is a cake you don't see made often.  My cousin who has made my cake for the past 7 years created a tiny lady finger cake with fresh fruit & buttercream frosting.  It was exactly what I pictured, and it fed over 6 people.  What's not pictured is the Almond Biscotti dipped in white chocolate that my friends took home, along with a box of tea drops.  All in all, it was a great time and I already can't wait for next year!
