High Tea For Valentine's Day with all of my favorite bloggers!

Me and my fabulous guests (we were being silly lol) minus Olia! She was headed to a staycation at the Sawyer! I was so glad she was able to stop by!!

I have always been up for a party! White party, black party, tea party give me all the parties!! When I was a teenager I had huge parties all the time at my house and my mom wanted to lose her mind because that meant loads of people at the house and lots of money LOL! I have been wanting to host a tea party for probably two years now with some local influencers! I kept talking about it to friends and  family and finally my father-in-law looked at me one day and said, “Why don’t we just do it and I’ll make all the food!” Anyone that has eaten anything he’s made or seen him in the kitchen knows that this is an easy task for him and it’ll be AMAZING. For me, it would prevent me from ever doing anything! I’m not a baker or a cook (ask Ben)!

Once I got the greenlight I went ahead and started inviting some local influencers, bloggers and you tubers that I think are pretty amazing! The aspect of community is so important to me. I think community is what keeps me alive and thriving in something I love. When one can spend time  with people that are like-minded and passionate about the same things it is something special. It’s the best way to recharge and get inspired all over again.
I’m definitely a girl that knows her strengths! The night before I had one of my good friends, Deborah come over and help me set the table and decorate a little bit! I feel like a huge weakness of mine is anything related to home decor but I’m working on it LOL! I literally become paralyzed. My father-in-law had been cooking for a few days, I had my mom help me clean up and she acted as his assistant the day before and the day of! Seriously, we can’t do anything like this alone! I have a black lab who is crazy (but oh so sweet) so I made sure to have one of our babysitters come by and take him out during the party which was a huge help! My dad took the kids to the park for me and they had such a good time, but they really wanted to stay and help with the party. For some reason having them around plus hosting stressed me out so I didn’t let them!!

My sweet friend Sarah (who also took these amazing photos) arrived early and helped me calm down quite a bit! Things can get hectic and stressful with getting everything ready can be real and having someone around like her can be extremely helpful! She came by and we shot some looks as well as some details of the table before our guests started to arrive.
Before we knew it the food was ready, the tea was made, and the girls started to file in! We mingled for a while and then all sat at our table right in front of our name cards that Liz of Choice Arrow Creations personalized for all of us. I’m the cheesy host that likes to bust out the conversation cards and get to know everyone more! As cheesy as it was I loved getting to know these girls more and spending time with them as a group. The food was divine as expected and  the company even better! Overall I would say it was a huge success and I can’t wait to host another tea party again! Thank you as always for stopping by the blog!!

    Awww, ruthie, what a beautiful event to nourish body and spirit. When my daughter was young, I used to host Valentine Tea parties that were also cookie exchanges. Everyone brought extra dozens on platters and an empty container, then the kids went around and refilled their containers with a huge assortment to take home. Of course, we ate some with our tea, too : ) Fun memories. Happy Valentine’s Day!
