Simple French Tea

  My simple French tea started out with my dress form dressed for the occasion with a black corset and a white tutu with a black top hat. Maybe a little over the top but why not, it’s time for me to let my inner fun side out !  I wore my french skirt with my simple black top. Maria wore her french black and white tee with red pants and a little french hat. The banner was easy to make because I bought the flags from Micheal’s and just spray painted the letters black . I used my mismatched silver and my mic-matched white china cups for the tea. I hand stenciled numbers on my white plates. And I used a chandelier stamp for my napkins and for my menu cards.

The Tea was a  success and we loved serving tea and talking to all the ladies who came by. I was asked for my cake recipe. I used a store-bought mix and added pineapple juice (instead of water ) and chucks to the cake batter. For the frosting I used 1 stick of butter and 1 package of cream cheese at room temperature. Then I added 1 cup of powdered sugar and blended well. I garnished the top with pineapple chucks.

A simple but fun tea, have a great week.

  1. Hello,
    My name is Jacob, I purchased a corset this past weekend in your store to sell in my Designer and Vintage Consignment store online through eBay and love the vibe of you boutique and your blog. I saw that you have a couple more corsets as well as some other pieces that I am interested in. I was also wondering if you would be willing to inform me if you receive any items that I may be interested in and if you would promote my store on your site, I am in the process of launching social media site and once that is up and running I would be more than happy to return the favor.
    I left my online business card with my contact information and look forward to hearing from you soon.

    • Thanks for the comment and yes, I will keep you updated with new items coming into my boutique,I post often what I am bringing into the store and we will be hosting a friends and family event for invite only and everything will be 25 % off ! Thanks again, Cheryl
