'Color Me Orange' Tea

Each summer for the past 4 years my daughter has hosted a tea.  This year's theme was 'Color Me Orange'.  It began by these Save the Date magnetic calendars that were sent the first of the year -

















This is the front of the invitation sent many weeks prior -






















These were the table decorations -











































































































Other decor throughout the house -





























































Delicious scones -


































Cupcakes -












































Sandwiches -


































In addition to various types of peach/orange hot tea, we enjoyed Southern Peach Tea (a cold tea) -


















Everyone received gift bags and these orange cookies -

















My daughter, the 'Color Me Orange' hostess -

















Gray Cardigan and the hostess -

















Additional family member - Gray Cardigan's sister -

















The hostess with me and my YaYa's --

















A truly wonderful time was had by all!!!!  We can't wait for next year!!!!

Although Lucy is a bit 'miffed' that she was not invited --

















I am linking to The Tablescaper's Seasonal Sunday.  You can see more wonderful ideas here.
Join me each Sunday for my weekly party
