Tea in the Garden

Welcome!  Let’s throw a party today shall we?  The two sets we’re showing off from Power Poppy today are full of celebration, whether it’s a Tea Party in the Garden or a big bash Birthday Party, we’ve got you covered with fantastic sets!  We’ve got Tea in the Garden and Party Time.  

I’m playing with the lovely Tea in the Garden because I just fell in love with this gorgeous pound cake on a pedestal bedecked by juicy strawberries.    

This just speaks country garden to me!  So, in creating I had to pair it with some lovely gingham, polka-dots and rich red and green.  In my world all pound cakes should be chocolate, so that’s what I coloured mine as, glistened wth some drippy white icing and looking very tasty.  

I’ve got some scallops, ric racks, a few enamel dots and some baker’s twine finishing it off.  Now we’re ready for the you can see I got a little ahead of myself and had a piece already, but now that I’ve tested, I know it’s ready for company!

Party on with the rest of the Bloom Brigade today....I know they’re ready to celebrate!
