We knew that hats would bring a certain level of prim-and-proper-ness to a party - and it was just as much fun to get all the little details together. Here are a few snapshots of the ambience.
Tropical birds adorned the table (salt & pepper shakers)
Of course, this crowd is about good food! Really lovely salads, home baked breads, an assortment of bagels and cream cheese, mimosas, Shakshuka, bacon and sausage from a local shop, quiche galore and Steph's lady fingers with chocolate ganache sprinkled with lavender.
Princess cake (a blanket of celadon marzipan hides layers of light-as-air white cake, whipped cream and raspberry preserves)
Guests bear gifts and shield themselves from the spring time sun with hand-painted parasols.
