As I didn't have enough time to plan anything for my 28th birthday in September, I said to myself I'd have a tea party and this weekend was the time. I love nothing more than to chill out, watch Disney and drink tea... the ideal combination for a Sunday I thought, so invited my two lovely friends over to join me at my place.
I'd got a stunning tea set from English Table & Creative Tops for my birthday and I was desperate to have an occassion to use it. If you know me, you will know I'm a huge fan of tea sets and entertaining guests with well made cups and saucers. Well when I saw this Katie Alice Collection I knew it had to be mine, it's a delightful blend of shabby chic but the perfect mixture of floral and polka dots for a cute vintage look.
Whilst enjoying our tea party, me and my two super dooper friends thought we'd have a trip down memory lane in the form of 1991 cinema hit - Beauty & The Beast. It seemed fitting as we were in the presence of Mrs Pots & of course Chip! Who doesn't love old school Disney?!
One of my friends made a fantastic cheeky carrot cake that was still warm when she came over. Myself and Miss Gingeybites dived straight in there and indulged in how yummy it was! With a delicious spongy cake and tea in our hands, this was turning out to be one of the most relaxing afternoons I'd had in a long time.

"Inspiration for the Ditsy Floral collection came from Katie's love of old vintage crockery, fabrics, wallpapers and antique finds"
I have their afternoon tea sets that have a cup and saucer, along with a side plate which is perfect for cheeky slices of cake. I also have a tea pot, sugar cube pot, milk jug, cake stand and of course (the host of the party) a tea pot. If you're shopping early for Christmas, this would be superb gift idea or maybe If you're a girlie girl like me this is the set for you.
When I rabbit on about investing in key fashion items, I believe the same about items for your house. To me, tea sets are certainly one of those key investment, If you have a good tea set you really cannot go wrong. Whenever I drink tea from a tea pot and sip it out of a cup and saucer, it feels really good especially if I'm reading a brand new magazine or a good book with it.
Me and my two girlies are making tea time and Disney a regular occurance.... hopefully there will be more cake for me to try! Watch this space!!
