Birthday Tea (Pt 2)

To all you ladies (& gents) who are tea lovers and can appreciate dainty pretty pastries, you’ll enjoy this 2nd installment of Birthday Tea. An afternoon filled with sisterly chit chat over yummy delights spent with my youngest sister (for her B-day) and my sis in law at the Taj Boston.

Purely a gal gathering w/o the disturbance of the husbands or babies. Some things are reserved just for us grown up girls (although I can’t wait to take Zoey for some mommy & me tea bonding time!).

Enjoy.

    I’ve spent the last hour reading all your posts. I adore everything about this blog, especially the photography! Are you just a natural, or have you taken classes?

  2. Hey there! I’ve been following your site for a while now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from Austin Texas! Just wanted to say keep up the good job!

  3. Your photographs are so beautiful! I have booked to go to the Ritz and Claridge’s in London in a few months time, and I’m so excited. Although I have to admit, despite the many tea rooms I visit in not-so-sunny England, the best afternoon tea I have ever taken was at Lady Mendl’s Tea Salon on a trip to New York. The staff couldn’t believe it when I told them it was better than at home!

  4. How delightful! Love the photos! And a happy birthday to your sister!
    Tea is always always special. A ritual, an idea, a comfort, an occasion….
    Thank you for following my blog and therefore helping me discover yours! Looking forward to reading more.

    • Hi- Truthfully, I should learn more about the concept of iso’s and f-stops but no matter how many times my husband explain it to me, I keep forgetting. Most of the images here are actually blurry and not ideal to my liking due to the dim lighting so I’m guessing my settings were incorrect. As far as lens, I have to ask the hubs. Can you tell I’m a little clueless? I just mess w/ the dials until I get the visual output that I like. Sorry, I’m not that helpful. (Not a professional photographer just like to take pictures) Have a great day! Best, Kellie

      • Yeah I have to say I do the same thing. I mess around with everything when I’m shooting. Sometimes I discover cool stuff. I love your blog. I think you do a really nice job. Your an inspiration. Xo

  5. The pictures are so beautiful as usual! I love tea-rooms – we have quite a selection here in England and although I’m not that great a tea-lover, I love going there for a dainty tea and side sandwiches every once in a while.
