custom inspiration board: vintage pink & grey tea party


Larisa is planning her daughter's first birthday this winter, and wanted a theme that was classic and timeless. She was not looking for something 'cute' but rather 'lovely'. After tossing around a few ideas, we settled on a vintage tea party using a pink and grey/silver color scheme. The soft, subtle colors feel appropriate for winter and offer a elegant and romantic ambiance...

Party Ideas
Colors: pale pink with grey + silver accents
Setting: afternoon tea and sweets at home
Invites: consider calligraphy script and lace detailing
Decorations: white linens with centerpieces of soft pink flowers (ie: cabbage roses, anemones) in milk glass vases and mercury glass candle holders. *silver platters & tiered trays for serving, china plates, crystal garlands draped from light fixtures and mantles. *to create your own silver platters, try framing pieces of lace fabric inside silver picture frames.
Food: tea sandwiches and a wide selection of pastries including petit fours, mini cupcakes and tea scones. pink lemonade for the kids with grey striped paper straws & a variety of teas for the adults.
Favors: silver compact mirrors in fabric pouches, engraved with a message or each guest's initials for an added touch of elegance.
