Allison's Tea Party

Last Sunday afternoon, I had the pleasure of attending the bridal shower of my cousin Adam's fiance, Miss Allison Rye.  My Aunt hosted the party at her gorgeous home in Kingsville, MD and our "tea party" theme came together so perfectly.  My Mother and I have been working with my Aunt to help bring her creative vision for Allison's special day a reality.  Adam & Allison's wedding reception will take place at M & T Bank Stadium, home of the Baltimore Ravens!  We carried the Raven's color scheme into her shower with purple decor, balloons, candy, flowers and the amazing A&A cookies, made by the extremely talented duo Theresa & Jose of Meringue Cake Studio.  Shower favors for guests to take home were little tea bags that said "Adam & Allison, A Perfect Blend," along with a few wildflower honey sticks.  Guests shared recipes for Allison and left them in a special box on her cake table.  Her invitations were also customized with different tea blends such as "Earl of Rye," "Raven Rooibos" and "Adam's Blend," just to name a few.  These little tea bags were hanging from her teapot invites, made by the Paper Gypsy.  It was an amazing day filled with great conversation, delicious food and memories to last forever.
