vintage chic high tea

{vintage chic dessert table}

Today's vintage tea party has captured my heart and I am so excited to share the beauty of it's tailored simplicity with you all. Brace yourselves ladies, this delightful feature is vintage perfection at its finest.

This gorgeous vintage high tea has been styled and captured by Niki from Candy Soirees. Niki and I worked on this project collaboratively and wanted to create the perfect birthday party for little Sienna. We were aiming for a look that is eclectic blend of girly and vintage chic with a touch of whimsy. We chose the colour palette of vintage pink, dove grey and pale lemon which tied in perfectly with my current collection of {vintage chic} party printables. It’s the perfect palette for vintage meets shabby chic. Stylistically, we both have a thorough appreciation of shape and colour and we both share a passion for vintage style.

The set up was held in a country garden, the space was transformed into a beautiful enchanted pink and dove grey world, because no high tea party is complete without doilies, lace and sweet candy. I would like to highlight the details of this "high tea" birthday. We had acquired some beautiful vintage china from a dear friend. We used it and supplemented with the rest of the vintage pieces and every prop used had the similar look and feel. We decided to use a baroque mirror tray as the centrepiece of the dessert table is full of fabulous sweet macarons, mini lemon meringues, ferrero rocher cupcakes and a selection of sweet candy.

Niki did lots of crafting projects including the gorgeous paper doily pinwheels, they are so easy to make but so effective and add a whimsical touch to any affair. I can’t go past and not mention how much i love the table & floral arrangements, the peonies completed the look we are aiming for. As for the backdrop, Niki used a mix of vintage lace, strands of crystals, doily pinwheels and crystal glass balls filled with white feathers to compliment the rest of the theme. It has been such a delight working with Niki on this project and we are so thrilled with the outcome. I would like to thank the lovely Courtney from {Pizzazzerie} and Kara from {Kara's Party Ideas} for featuring our party. Also would like to thank all the wonderful people who kindly shared our {Vitange Chic} tea party, we truly appreciate your lovely comments and Niki and I would like to thank you for your amazing support and wish you all a very merry christmas filled with love and joy. Enjoy xx
