This past Saturday afternoon, Tara (author of The Wonder Girl) hosted a girlie tea party complete with cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches and a glitter manicure tutorial for her girlfriends. Fingers sans polish, guests were encouraged to don appropriate tea party attire (sparkly bling mandatory!). Both a mix of vintage china and a modern tea set by Rosanna were used to serve butter cookies, sandwiches, and Earl Grey tea. Décor included scattered bottles of nail polish and fresh flowers (lavender & dahlias) in vintage vases. In between sips of tea, the ladies followed Tara’s step-by-step nail instructions, and all left with ombred glitter manicures in various colors!
Tara dipped store-bought cookies in homemade icing (dyed purple with food coloring) and sprinkled with multicolored sugar crystals for a semi-homemade yet simple desert.
Upon the guests’ departure, this hostess gave each girl a party favor that included Butter nail polish and cookies to-go. Tea leaves and sparkle confetti were thrown into the personalized bags for a festive touch.
