So I turned 23 yesterday.
But I felt like my birthday lasted all week (which isn't a bad thing!)
(My husband jokes it's more like a "birthday month." Haha)
To get the ball rolling, a few weeks ago my best friend Courtney and I got our fancy tea party on.
(Her birthday is in late March, so we usually do one celebration for both of us.)
If you've never had afternoon tea at The London Tea Room, I HIGHLY recommend it! It's the perfect girly date!
When we got there they already had our fancy little teacups waiting for us! We both got to order our own pot of tea - I ordered decaf early grey and Courtney ordered raspberry green tea. Yum!
My beautiful best friend!
Me excited and hungry.
While we were waiting I gave her her birthday card.
AND THEN THE FOOD CAME.
Oh my word. Tiny finger sandwiches (smoked salmon, cucumber,ham), black currant scones with devonshire cream and strawberry jam, and tiny fruit tarts, cheesecakes and cookies for "dessert" (all freshly made from scratch!).
Courtney's tea was so pretty!
I couldn't even finish my little cheesecake, my belly was so happy. And the shortbread cookies are my mother's favorite so I saved those for her.
Getting to spend time with Court is always such a blessing! I love this girl and am so happy she is in my life! We were both so pleased with the food and service we are thinking of making it our annual birthday tradition.
I'll be back soon with more birthday happenings! Sadly no art for a while...my printer/scanner is dead forever so I'll be saving pennies for a while. I'll try to take pictures of some upcoming commissions!
