Blogger Royal-tea

I had such a wonderful time at the Blogger Royal-tea.  You can see that some of us wore our hats for a while at least.

This is the lovely Laura from Decor to Adore.  She did an amazing job getting this all together.
She made each of us this sweet little box.
When you opened it, a sweet little Thank you card.
and some goodies.
Liz from Rose Vignettes....who I hope is still speaking to me!!!  made these beautiful little candy stacks. 
Look at the precious crown.
See Liz so happy admiring her teapot.  It was a Gift Exchange.  They did that silly steal game.  I told the ladies that I HATE that game.  So when it was my number...well, sorry, but I had to play by the rules!!

I stole it from my dear friend Liz!!  Sorry Liz......

For all you pink lovers...look at the soft lines of pink.

At the tearoom there was so many items with Cate and William.  I refrained because I knew my friend Sally was returning from there.  I asked her if she could pick me up some little thing with the royal couple.  I tell you I am over the moon thrilled with this....

sweet little display plate.  It has their names and date of the wedding.

Love the crown on the back...but it was made in China...isn't that funny!!

She also got me a postcard with the official engagement party.  Oh Marty...tell your son, she still is in the blue dress...poor girl!!

What a great weekend.  We are taking it easy today.  Tomorrow my daughter and grand-daughter are supposed to come over.  Our grandson won't be able to come because he will be in school.

Have a great week.....

The "royal tea" looks like so much fun! You had a great turnout! Everyone looks lovely in their hats.
I love the lucky girl...and the Royal plate is adorable. So glad she got that for you. SWEET!

This must have been a blast Ceekay. You look so cute in your hat!!! I would have loved to be there! Are all these bloggers from Arizona?
How fun to get women together who all love the same things and who really get each other. It doesn't mean we all have to decorate alike or do exactly the same type of art or crafting...just that our homes and our creativity are a huge part of who we are.
I am so glad you had this opportunity to get together.
sending hugs

It looks like you had a wonderful time at the tea. You were really styling with your new outfit too. I don't think anyone can blame you for stealing the teapot. It is just too cute!

Hi Ceekay, I love all you girls in your hats,looks like you had a great time. What a wonderful exchange party. The teapot is "gorgeous". The silver bunnies on the blog post were ordered wholesale, I noticed several of them at hobby lobby. Funny how we all have things available from the same companies. I hope this finds you doing well. Challenges in our lives are full of ups and downs. We're sure discovering that around here. Many many hugs ~lynne~

Shelia said...

Hi Ceekay! Oh, what a fun time you must have had. You look very pretty in your hat! A gal after my own heart - take that tea pot! It's so pretty! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Sarah said...

Ceekay, looks like the group had a wonderful time. Each of you look stunning in your hats. And that tea pot is darling. My antique club had a gift exchange like this at Christmas. I was #1 and the rules of game were that person #1 could pick any gift at the end. Well, I'm afraid I had to "play by the rules" too. I took a wonderful antique ivory salt and pepper shaker set. Felt bad about doing it, but the girl from whom I took them was the one who made the rule. ;-) She's still speaking to me. LOL ~ Sarah

Yellow Rose Arbor said...

You look sooo pretty in your hat!Bet it was a great time!

I hate that steal game too. I took something from a friend once and I have not been able to really enjoy it, I've often thought I should have given it to her! LOL!

This looks like so much fun. You ladies are beautiful! I love hats and wish they were worn more. I would definitely wear mine.

Picket said...

Morning girl...what a great tea party...loved those beautiful little boxes and you are adorable in your hat! Girl we swap gifts at Christmas but I refuse to play that 'take' game thing...there would be camo ripping calls flying...skoal cans throwing and that's just with the Burlys!!!! lol lol Love you sweetie...hope you have a glorious week!

What fun!!! You girls look so lovely...and I know you had a ball! I love it that you got the tea pot in the game. I'm sure Liz is over being upset with you...heck, she might do that to you next time!

LOVE the royal couple memorabilia brought to you!! How lucky you are to have the real deal!!

Your son is so handsome...and so is your hubby (photo on earlier post). My hubby doesn't smile in photos either.

Gotta finish dinner...hope you have a great evening!!!

Ceekay, that party looks like the most fun ever, and I love the cute hats. Isn't Laura the sweetest one? And you are a naughty, naughty girl for stealing poor Liz's teapot. LOL! Love all the goodies you got, including the Catherine and Wills plate. How neat!

Hope you are doing well. Enjoy your time with your family...
