And pics of my guests!


  1. I love your party. It looks amazing. How did you manage to get the people out of your house before the next party started?

    1. Thanks so much for popping in to my blog, appreciate it! Will squiz yours now too.

      Luckily on the first two invites, I specified the time, so the first one was 10-12, and then the next one was 1-3. Also, I told most of the girls that I was having 3 parties - it was quite a joke! :-D

  2. I love this!! Tea is my obsession!
    I also LOVE the invitation and decor! Happy 30th again and thanks for visitng my blog

    Much love, Bailey from Vanilla Blonde
