Oh my! What a delightful party.
I teamed up with fabulous folks at THE STORY OF US to create this editorial spread of my dream kitchen tea party in the lead up to my wedding day.
I am officially at the “6 months to go!” mark and boy am I excited. The heat is on and this shoot acted as a gentle reminder that it’s high time I got a wriggle on and started locking down plans for my big day… Eeeep! (insert stressed out emoji here).
Now some of you might be scratching your head wondering “what the heck is a kitchen tea party?”.
Don’t worry, I was in the same boat as you not so long ago.
I have since learned that a kitchen tea is a party held before a wedding to which female guests drink tea, bring items of kitchenware as gifts and share home made recipes.
Hmmmm sounds like a twee la-di-dah sensible old fashioned version of a hens party to me. So we decided to funk up this tradition with some fizzy pop pink party decoration fabulousness!
And whilst I won’t be having an actual kitchen tea with my girlfriends (I am all about a HENS PARTY PEOPLE!), I was delighted to think pink, get my girlie-self on, drink some fizz and throw myself into this Kitchen Tea theme with a twist!
I hope you enjoy my collaboration creation and please do share your experience (or even lack of experience) of the good ole kitchen tea with me in the comments section below.
I’d love to know… Is it an event you would host in the lead up to your wedding? Should I reconsider?
Love Peanut xo
p.s The cake was “out of control good” buttery vanilla and yes it was as delicious as it was pretty!
