real parties: a heavenly high tea

Tracey Lau combined her love of high tea and dessert tables into an incredible display for her 40th birthday. She selected a classic color palette of french blue, chocolate, vanilla and caramel and incorporated it into both the design and the food. Amazingly enough, she also made all the food herself... including the gorgeous ribbon adorned fondant cake! With the inclusion of velvet and lace textures, this party has an elegant vintage flair reminiscent of a European patisserie. One of my friends will be hosting a high tea for my baby shower this Saturday, and after seeing this loveliness I fear she has some rather big shoes to fill...
