My 34th(!!) birthday was in early September, and I knew immediately what I wanted – an elegant tea party with my friends!
The Boston Public Library has a courtyard restaurant with a pretty nice afternoon tea. I decided to have my party there, because our original plan (hosting ourselves in our apartment) wasn’t ideal.
I was excited to take photos beforehand because I felt so classy! There’s also something about a fascinator that makes people think you are important – quite a few people stopped me to ask me where I was going, and a few others even took pictures while Dave was snapping away!
I don’t like when people pay attention to me while I’m posing, but I guess I was just feeling really confident because I was barely affected by it!
I thought it would be funny to wear gaudy jewelry, so I bought some plastic pearl necklaces and big bling rings. I put them in little organza bags to give to my friends at the tea party so we could all be super “fancy!”
I hope you can see the print of my dress above. I got it at Disney in Florida over the summer – it’s a Mad Tea Party dress! 🙂
The first few photos in my post were taken outside of the library, and these were taken in the courtyard:
