Vintage High Tea

The Briars in Mornington (Melbourne Peninsula) has always been such a favourite place of mine. I have had my wonderful friend Katie photograph my children numerous times in this most amazing setting.  It was also the inspiration behind the sweet tea party  I styled in January of this year for my baby doll and beautiful niece..

I wanted to create a tea party using a soft pastel colour pallet, to compliment the innocence of childhood.  The gorgeous tea set from Robert Gordon Australia is one of my favourite pieces and was also the inspiration behind the tea party. My daughter and I love to frequent the pottery studio in Pakenham, you must check it out.   Its such a lovely place, with warm, helpful staff who make the kids feel so happy (they offer pottery painting for the little ones as well as us big fans!) whilst we shop to our hearts content..

Our high tea menu consisted of strawberry and lemon curd macarons, iced vanilla biscuits and vintage inspired cupcakes. The girls also enjoyed a small selection of candy from the candy buffet.

The girls had such a lovely afternoon with yummy treats and flavoured milk.

I can not thank Katie enough for taking such beautiful photos and capturing these beautiful little people. xx

A huge thank you to Amy Atlas for the feature.
