Oh my goodness, it has been such a busy week! Gina has been home from Seattle since Sunday, Otto has been celebrating his 3rd birthday for days and it's Beatrix Potter's 150th birthday! Yesterday was the big birthday day! I started planning a little tea for weeks...so fun!
I always like to set the table the night before the tea, whenever possible. I had kept my Peter Rabbit items close at hand after Easter. I don't have a lot of Wedgewood china pieces but it all mixes well with pretty floral and garden patterns of china.
A few soft plush characters decided to join Peter in the decorations.
All set with silver serving pieces, linens and glassware! Let the fun begin....bring on the food1
The food makes the table come alive. I enjoy a buffet style tea as my kitchen is quite small.
I haven't been eating sweets and I did enjoy EVERYTHING today in little bites.
This was my very favorite and fun Peter Rabbit! I found the cute idea on Pinterest. Such a cute way to serve up a veggie plate. I made a yogurt dip to keep it in the healthy department.
I dd make cranberry orange scones for Jimmy. You can't have a tea without scones!
Fresh fruit for all...the perfect time of the year for a sweet little dish of sweets.
I was able to use my garden fresh little tomatoes with the mozzarella and basil skewers.
I love blue cheese! It's supposed to look like a carrot. I served it with rice crackers...yummmy.
I know it's a busy table but it was very fun and enjoyable. I served a black almond tea that was really nice with all the goodies.
Happy Birthday Beatrix Potter! It was fun celebrating with you and Peter.
