I'm part of planning a Baby Shower for our kids who are having twins this fall! Since we know they are a boy and a girl (Luke and Leia)...we're just going traditional blue and pink...with a vintage tea party! What a fun way to use your vintage china tea sets...

I will definitely take my vintage Lavender Rose Tea Set that I bought in Ireland! It will be for Leia!

Congratulations on the twins! That is exciting news. The shower sounds lovely. When my son got married we had a similar tea party theme. My sister gave me a bridal shower at a tea room and it was so much fun. All that beautiful china adds to the special memories of the shower.
I love the tea cup filled with roses.
Thanks, Donna! The shower isn't until August but I'll make pics and share. :)
Please do post pics, I'd love to see them.
We are doing the mix-matched vintage china tea cups (similar to this photo) and giving them as party favors...

Well, this is the week! I picked up two more cups and saucers at the 2nd hand store yesterday. The plates don't really match the cups but if we're really do this mix-match thing, I guess that doesn't matter! :)
Baked tea cakes last night and have them in the freezer. Sprinkled the tops with blueberry and strawberry jello-mixed-with-sugar to make them pink and blue. Fun.
Beautiful pictures, I'm sure the vintage tea party was a big hit. I'd like to have a piece of that cake right now. The table is set so lovely. Now you wait for the twins. Exciting times.
Donna, that cake was white chocolate with fresh strawberry filling!! omg! Yes, now we wait for the twins...
Congratulations Ellen! They are beautiful babies! Enjoy your new grandbabies. Double the blessings and the fun!
Thanks, Donna! Just got back home today and I have say...I am spoiled. So, so sweet.
