tea party birthday

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:DSC_0951-small

I can’t believe it’s almost 2017!  The end of the year is always crazy due to the holidays, and we have been spending our past few weekends meeting up with friends and family.  It’s certainly nice to catch up with everyone, but I wish we had just one day between now and New Year’s where we could relax at home and do nothing.

I actually can’t take credit for the cuteness of this outfit.  I was eyeing this dress over on ModCloth a few months ago, and decided to check out the outfit inspiration they had on the item listing.  I saw an adorable photo of a girl wearing this dress paired with a mustard cardigan – so I immediately found the same cardi and added it to my cart.

Thanks so much, karen.biscopink for inspiring my look! 🙂
