As summer winds down for me, I decided to have a few close friends over for a summer tea party. I had such a blast preparing everything from scratch (check out Smitten Kitchen for amazing, no-fail recipes), and chatting away the afternoon.
It was fairly warm, so I opted for a loose dress under a loose cardigan. My mother actually made my floral crown for me. She fashioned it with wires and hand made the flowers out of clay. She is seriously such a creative inspiration for me (she also did the floral arrangement today).
I must say that I felt pretty domestic today, but I'm not exactly complaining. Sometimes it's nice to just take things slow.
