Modern Tea Party

Here is our take on a Modern Spring tea party. It would be good theme for a springtime baby shower, wedding shower, or brunch. I like throwing smallish parties like this because you can make more thoughtful details instead of throwing a giant party. My friend Andrea helped us put together a perfect menu of non-traditional (but really easy) tea treats that our guests LOVED.  Click through below to see all the details from the party!

Splatter Painted Napkins

by Ashley Page Norton 

This is by far the fastest, most satisfying way to create a set of hand-dyed napkins. By choosing colors you love and following a simple technique, each napkin becomes a work of art! They’ll look gorgeous in a place setting but also work for lots of other decor projects, like gift wrap or bunting. The technique is super easy – to get an even splatter pattern, flick the paint off your hands so you have lots of control over how dense the pattern is or how big the drips are. If you’ve never had a full set of cloth napkins for entertaining, this is the perfect way to create one that’s completely personal and will last for years (the splatter pattern is very forgiving on stains)!

Funny Bunny Easter Favors

by Ashley Page Norton 

These cute favors feature my favorite treat, mini marshmallows. They come together quickly with a few craft supplies you probably already have around. By using a variety of colors of paper, washi tape, and paper napkins, each bunny has it’s own look and personality. You could even use them to play the “chubby bunny” game, but I think the marshmallows are much better savored!
