Tea for Ruby

Tea parties. There is just something about them that I can’t resist. This pretty tea party was held in honor of cute little Ruby’s first birthday. Ruby’s mom, photographer Shannon Leigh Anderson, made the gorgeous invitations by scanning vintage inspired fabrics to make the tea cups. She also incorporated a lot of other crafty DIY projects, including DIY party hats and a garland that hung above the table made from fabric, twine and ribbon. The doily chair swags were made with inspiration from a Martha Stewart Weddings tutorial. Pretty straws and candles from Bake It Pretty and a smash cake from local cake shop Cakes on Walnut were the perfect finishing touches.

Many thanks to Shannon for sharing this beautiful party! And a big happy birthday to little miss Ruby!
