The month of May is a perfect time to celebrate
and I could not think of a better way
than to have a spot of tea.
And while we are at it,
let’s make it a pink party.
Perfect for May Day,
Mother’s Day, Birthdays or just because
I feel like a Tea day….
Make your guest feel special by wrapping
each invitation in a pretty paper doily.
Idea from Martha Stewart .
A Pink Buds Fashionista Bracelet would be
a lovely party favor
Or party craft…

I just read Lanie's Real Adventure
(an American Girl) and thought
that it would be fun to have
a day full of butterflies...
