just shy of two weeks late, the mother's day tea.

colorful. before heading to the tea.

my table. love LOVE the mix-n-match china.
(we were hotting the pots so they're missing.)

totally adore this tiered dish. want to steal it. thanks to nanny for bringing it.

earl grey tea with cream and two lumps of sugar = scrumptious.
super cute vintage tablecloth = also scrumptious.

cupcakes generously donated by cakes in a cup. italian creme, chocolate ganache, red velvet and wedding cake. my favorite, by far, is wedding cake. a tower of magnificent icing. mmm.

more table.
several of the dishes were my great-grandmother's. so, so special.
a few others are antique store finds. most are thrift store finds.
