When you hear "tea party" you probably think of little girls dressed in their fancy little dress up clothes and mom's high heels, surrounded by their favorite teddy bears and dolls.

Last weekend, my co-blogger Adrienne and I attended a tea party held at my church. It was so neat! Each table that was set up had a hostess. Each hostess decorated their table to fit their personality.
This was our table
I loved the way our table was decorated! It was so warm and inviting! I even fell in love with the linens! We each had a little jar with an herb planted in it! Mine was basil :)
The theme of the tea was "Encouragement". Our Guest speaker was Cindy Cook, founder of So the Cook Said, and also the daughter of our pastor.
She gave a sweet message about encouraging others and how sometimes God has a way of sending us encouraging words when we need it most.
Sometimes just sending a little card to a friend may be just what they really need! You never know when it will make their day.
For dessert we had the most beautiful cupcakes to choose from!
Adrienne chose a beautiful lemon cupcake with yellow icing and sugar pearls
My cupcake was red velvet and had light pink fondant with a yummy strawberry on top!
Having this tea party was such a neat idea! Its even inspired Adrienne & I to try and do our own :)
Its a great way for women to get together and encourage each other!
