Recently, for Jordan’s birthday, I was put in charge of setting up an afternoon tea party for the team! After briefly flirting with the idea of doing something modern and unique I decided to stick with the old classic- pretty pastels. There’s something so dreamy and wonderful about a perfectly pastel tea party!

Here are some of the details…

  • There are just so many amazing sources for desserts in San Francisco. Since I’m not much of a baker, I headed straight to my favorites-  Miette in Hayes Valley, has the most BEAUTIFUL vintage style cakes, meringues and candy. Just around the corner is Chantal Guillon with macaron flavors in a variety of perfect colors. Finally, the cute and delicious cream puffs are from Choux bakery.
  • The floral arrangement is from Birch. Also located in Hayes Valley, Birch consistently has the most gorgeous curation of flowers and greenery.
  • I’ve included a collection of mis-matched vintage and modern pastel tea cups – a combination of Jordan’s and my collection.
  • A friend of mine recently recommended ‘Paris’ tea by Harney and Sons and I am now completely addicted. ‘Paris’ is a black tea that is so fruity and flavorful it doesn’t require any milk or sugar. You NEED this tea in your life!!
  • I opted out of providing the traditional crust cut finger sandwiches because there was A LOT of food consumed throughout Jordan’s birthday and so only the sweet things made the cut!
  • And finally, no tea party would be complete without scones! I’m a huge fan of classic lemonade scones topped with strawberry jam and whipped cream (I personally prefer it to the traditional clotted cream). Of course, it’s always nice to include a choice of different jam flavors and/or lemon curd for your guests.
