Vintage 3-Tiered Cake Stands + Tea Party Inspiration!

Posted December 17, 2010 | 14 Comments

I have a bit of a vintage tea cup / cake stand obsession and I like to add to my collection on a regular basis. When I spotted these adorable vintage cake plates by High Tea for Alice I added them to my last-minute Christmas wish list immediately. There’s still time to add them to yours! ;) After looking at these, I want to throw a tea party!

After admiring these, I want to throw a tea party. These hand-picked treats would make for a pretty party…

treats: from top – {1}, {2}, {3}, {4}, {5}

If I was planning a spring wedding or bridal shower in 2011, I think a garden party theme would be lovely. Sunshine, willow trees, wildflower bouquets, tons of decorative touches (bunting, garland, a pretty backdrop, diy doily charger) and these cake stands as lovely centerpieces. Pick your favorites (the more mis-matched the better!) and add tons of colorful treats like macarons, whoopie pies, lemon squares, cupcakes…. YUM!

So, lovelies…

What would you add to the tea party?

love,
-E.

    I love these little tea party pretties! The only thing I would add would be a tea pot of Lady Grey tea and my best girlfriends.

    I would just like to say that I have ordered those macarons from Sparkles Kitchen (on etsy) before and they are delish! Just as pretty in person!
