Since summer is leaving us & coming to an end I had to give one more shout out to this beautiful time of year!

We are cold & dreary here & it is looking more and more like fall at each corner {not that I mind a bit!}  I love fall but today I had Garden tea parties on the brain!

look at this beautiful inspiration...

Don't you think this is o "So Lovely"?

{off the beaten path} - some sewing love

I came across Heather Bailey - see her blog here!  She is fun, fabulous and o-so-creative!  I love creative & I have found my outlets for that creativity!

One of those outlets is sewing.  Now, I just started & I don't sew a lot of things but I do plan to use it to my advatage on redecorating, making new table cloths and napkins for the teas and so on...

I came across this adorable pin cusion {5 fruit patterns in 1!} & knew I had to make one soon {huge fan of pears}!

Get the pattern here...

I may just be making these for a few special ladies this year for Christmas!!!

{I feel so BLESSED!}

My Nana that passed away this past February is the reason that I do what I do with So Lovely!  She is my inspiration & the one whom taught me how to be a lady & how to set a proper table.  That isn't even an inkling of what she instilled in me but I will share more as we continue down this journey together...

Nana always subscribed to Tea Time magazine & any other ultra frilly, foo foo magazine she could find - needless to say, those are all right up my alley as well.  She would get her Tea Time in the mail & as soon as she was done devouring it - it would be my turn!!!

As I have been thinking about what path I would like my dream to go down I was thinking about people I can share So Lovely with!  Needless to say I want to share it with everyone & in turn be the go-to gal for all things Tea Party!  In, steps Tea Time.  If you haven't checked this magazine out you should go get one today!  It is beautiful & classic - exactly what I want So Lovely to reflect, exactly what Nana was in her lifetime!

Long story short...{not really} I sent a story idea to Tea Time & they contacted me back about visiting with the Asst. Editor!  Yes, I am dancing around giggling like I am 13 again...

This is a dream and a blessing!  We will see what comes of it but either way I am honored!

{It's Love!}

I fell in love with Baby K Designs on Etsy as I was planning for Olivia's arrival.

We had the outfit to bring her home in & it was yellow, {as you know I am a girly girl who LOVES pink} but I  was determined to make this little girl look like a little girl in yellow by finding her a beautiful flower for her tiny little head :) 

Well, the outfit was HUGE but the flower worked perfectly for this sweet little photo & now it works just lovely on my head!!!  I LOVE her work & I think you will too!

Did I mention she was having a sale?!!!!!!

Thank you! Thank you!  Thank you! is what I have to say to everyone that helped make {Olivia's 1st Birthday} a success!  Can I just say that everything you read and everyone you talk to will try and convince you to keep it small but I fully recommend having ALL of your loved ones around you to celebrate this special time! 

The photos turned out just smashing thanks to one of my besties - Melanie - love ya girl and thank you for celebrating with us and documenting this special day!

Sit back & enjoy seeing the memories we created!

Livi LOVES whip cream!  Everytime I get my chai with whip cream {I will tell you more in later posts!} she makes this goofy little noise until I scoop some up on my finger & give it to her!  We thought this would make for a nice topping!

she does everything so delicatly!  Too sweet!
For our favors we decided to do Sixlets candies.
have you ever had sixlets?  they have been one of my absolute favorites for a long time!
Needless to say they looked like polka dots & tasted "O So Good"
they were the perfect gift!

"Thanks for making my party a Hoot" was on the favor tags by So Lovely Events along with our sweet little owl that was carried throughout the party!
LOVE these!

these little bloomers came with her party dress so I had Michelle at Charmingly Petite
add "I'm 1" to the back using our theme material!

One cool chick!

isn't she sweet?!  I LOVE these flowers from Baby K Designs
{I'm actually wearing one right now too!}

A few little extras I had Charmingly Petite do for me as well!

Welcome to So Lovely Tea Room & Events!!!

I am so excited to FINALLY be starting down the path I feel led...

Please step through the door of my dream & let me share with you all things lovely, all things pretty & all things tea room!

My daughter Olivia turned 1 this past Sunday so of course we HAD to have a party for her!  This couldn't be a small party because that just isn't how we do it so we planned and planned and planned and I am so excited to share with you in the days to follow {Olivia's 1st Birthday Party} - it was a real Hoot!

I want to start off by sharing with you a beautiful Ruffly Felt Rosette Wreath that I just knew I had to make when I came across it on one of my "Lovely Blogs" - Inspiring Reads & Funny Thoughts - Kristy Ramsey is one of the most creative people I know and I am sure I will mention her again but first I want to thank her for introducing me to this lovely wreath!  If you LOVE this picture you can make this wreath!

Not Crafty?
