My inspiration came from the front cover of Dianne Hall's High Tea In The Garden:
We had to make do with things around the house. My husband's Granny was so kind to give me her silver tea set (for keeps!). I collected cake stands for my wedding, so I had plenty of those. We went to the flower market and got the most beautiful pink roses (and picked some from our garden too!) I used pink and white chinese paper lanterns to set the party mood, and I think they looked lovely!
The party was a great success, and Mom-in-law absolutely loved it!
