A Midsummer Mad Tea

Here's a peek at DLP's latest soiree, a balmy summer
evening bridal shower for our very own Kelly!

The space before we attacked:

And After:

Centerpieces were constructed using mismatched china,
vintage jewelry and antique paper goods.

This charming dining space was created by pulling
together wabisabi retro
linens, borrowed dining chairs
and pendants cut from vintage textiles.
Lawn furniture was
pimped out with
patterned pillows and antique velvet throws.

At dusk our beautiful bride happily opened her mountain of gifts!

Amid twinkling fairy lights and the crackle of a
great-grandparents phonograph guests were whisked
away to a whimsical thicket full of desserts and white rabbits!

These goodies went so quickly we couldn't even
photograph them before guests couldn't help themselves!
The ladies enjoyed a spread of not-so-dainty bacon cucumber
tea sandwiches, quiches, lettuce wraps, fresh cherries and of course
in classic DLP fashion--at least 3 kinds of cake!

Drippy Lip decked out in our tea time duds...

Guests were asked to write words of wisdom
on a brightly dyed butterfly
that were pinned to an
upholstered antique frame as a keepsake for the bride-to-be.

We achieved a rich rummage-sale texture by using
nearly 100 doilies and tea towels!
*no doilies were harmed in the making of this mad tea*
