Two weeks ago I put together a tea party for 5 best friends to celebrate their graduation from high school! I absolutely love styling sessions like these! For this tea party I pulled out my rustic barn wood table and placed it under one of the trees in our backyard, strung up a vintage hankie banner, and gathered beautiful cherry tree blossoms placing them in old glass jars and an enamel pitcher!  I sent a picture to Jenna from Jenna Rae Cakes of a glorious pink ruffle cake which I thought would fit the setting perfectly! In no time she whipped up this amazing ruffle cake featured in the below pictures. And some matching ruffle cupcakes! Thanks Jenna! Over time I’ve collected a bunch of pretty tea cups & saucers which I brought out for this tea party! The beautiful pillows were created by my good friend Rosella from Rosella’s Lane! I feel so blessed to work with all these incredibly talented people!

Now let’s introduce these gorgeous ladies; Morgan, Maria, Rachelle, Monique, and Caitlin!

My husband baked the most delicious raspberry & vanilla pudding shortcake topped with whipped cream! It was a huge hit!

Thanks ladies for braving the slightly cold weather, rolling thunder, and tornado warnings and coming out for the tea party! You all looked gorgeous!
