Tea Time

March 10, 2011

Handmade tea-bag tags

I’m having a great time piecing together all my shower ideas. Seeing what will work and skipping any ideas that won’t. One idea that I came across (thanks to Martha) is replacing the tea-bag tags with something more suitable…what says love and marriage more than hearts? It’s a simple process with high impact. The hearts are made of foam and come with a peel and stick backing. The pack comes with 3 different sizes and colors to vary the look. You can play around with playful sayings in glittery pen or just simply label with the type of tea!

Earl Grey Tea Cookies

Earl Grey Tea Cookies

To continue on with my wedding shower planning I tried out a cookie recipe that might just make the menu. These Earl Grey Tea Cookies are more of an adult cookie with a smokey flavor of ground earl grey tea and a hint of citrus. Since I am planning a tea party luncheon for the shower these of course make perfect sense! When I opened the oven after they were done baking there was no way I could miss the aroma of tea and I think they may have just made the menu!

Love my mixer!

Wedding Planning: Shower Theme

February 21, 2011

With my best friends wedding coming up this September and the excitement of being the Maid of Honor I’ve already started my planning. The shower is going to be a tea party theme; I can’t wait to start the baking of all the sweet treats and plan the menu for the luncheon. Throughout my planning I’ll share everything with you along the way…invitations, guests gifts, food and decor. Think of the picture above as my inspiration board, hopefully it will turn out as beautiful as it is in my head!

Engagment party

January 4, 2011

Merry Christmas and Happy New Years to all of you! It feels great to be back after a short hiatus from SweetWhimsy. I hope everyone indulged in the things they love over the holidays; I know I did! One of the reasons that I’ve been so busy is that I had the honor to bake the desserts for my best friends engagment party this past Sunday. (Definitely not as busy as her Mom who was cooking for the event ALL night long.) I choose 3 desserts to make: Red velvet truffles, Marbled cupcakes with Cream cheese icing and Sugar cookies with Buttercream icing. I wanted them to look whimsical as always so I got the dessert cards made last minute. This way everyone knew what they were nibbling on and the cards gave it a more professional look. Congrats to the happy couple!
