An Invitation to Tea




When Mary Ashley and Emma discovered invitations to a Valentine tea at the home of our dear friend Nancy Itson, I'm not sure which one of us girls squealed the loudest.







Nancy's invitation, a cut-out teacup, features a clever pull-out tag that looks like a tea bag. Nancy found the perfect vintage teacup graphic free from The Graphics Fairy.






We immediately cleared our calendars for the Saturday before Valentine's Day, and the girls started counting down the days until Miss Nancy's tea party.





On the day of the party, girls arrived at the Itsons' home dressed in their favorite party dresses and eager to celebrate. Outside they found a a cluster of brass keys and a sign instructing them to choose a key and use it to unlock the door to the party. When they turned their keys, the girls found themselves in ...



Wonderland!




This week you are invited to go through the looking glass with me each day as I share memories from our Valentine tea in Wonderland.




Still to come, decor, menu, crafts and favors. So don't be late for this very important date with our gracious hostess, Nancy Itson!
