Pretty in pink afternoon tea menuSummer is the perfect time of year to enjoy an afternoon tea with your friends and this Summer Afternoon Tea was a wonderful event!

I sent out invitations that I had made, and I included a tea bag in each invitation.  There were eight of us all together.  We all wore dresses and hats which made it extra fun.  I strung Christmas pearls and seashells all over the table and used any pink candies I could find, like Dove chocolate and raspberry candies.  I made the cherry lemonade in keeping with the pink theme.  For the table, I just bought pretty fabric and put it over the table.  I also used tea pots for the flower bouquets and put the lids on the table for more decoration.  Votive candles were lit as well.
