Just in case you are like me, and not ready to say goodbye to a month full of pink & red, love, flowers, hearts and sparkles.  Here is a recap of this years Galentine's Day Tea Party we hosted along with Casey of Tastes of Tampa Bay at 4210 in Tampa.  Last year we had so much fun we decided to make it an annual thing!  This year was extra special though, because Casey provided us with a HUGE display of amazing sweet and savory treats!  I had so many delicious favorites.  Just before the tea party a few lovely friends got dolled up and Kelly, May and Rachael did their hair + makeup so that they could model for a few photos.  Emily did such a wonderful job capturing all the details, the models and the tea party!   Jennifer put together all of our paper goodies, including adorable handmade tea envelopes for the tea party.  The venue was perfect for our party.  Inside we had one long table covered in rose gold sequin table cloths, hand dyed ombre linen napkins, beautiful china and colored goblets.  For seating we used our French Slotted Wood folding chairs.  Stunning arrangements were displayed down the table in wooden planters to tie in the wooden chairs.  Debbie with The Bride's Bouquet put together all of our beautiful florals.  One of my favorite parts were the wooden plates of cheese and fruit displayed down the table for guest to enjoy as they arrived.  The tea party guest were some of the sweetest and talented ladies in the wedding industry!  Lots of planners, photographers, florist and more.  To have this amazing group of women together encouraging and supporting one another speaks volumes!  I feel honored to be in such a supportive creative community.  Brace yourselves for lots of photos!
