Tea anyone?

Cover Photo

Hey there my beautiful Pinque Peacock fans! I am thrilled to share this project with you today.  This is probably the biggest project I've done and taken the longest to make it.

I LOVE how it turned out and will have a hard time parting with it! lol

I used the Tea for you and me set from SVG Cuts and The Delightful paper stack from DCWV.  Have I hooked any of you on this paper pad yet?  I am on the third one.
I laughed at myself because one day I actually went through and separated my scraps by paper pattern and organized them cutting them into nice rectangles and squares. lol I have issues.

So moving on to the gorgeous project I made!
TA DA!!!
 Lots of gorgeous, beautiful, yummy embellishments. 
 Top view, there are a lot of pictures in this post, I had to get all of the angles for you!
 I was going to get sugar cubes to put in the tea cup originally but then I saw these shimmer gumballs and thought they would be prettier and for a party center piece would be more fun!
 The box behind the tea cup is holding some of my favorite Tazo tea flavors that coincidentally match the paper!  I promise you, this is the tea I had in my pantry! 
 This is one of those projects that came together flawlessly and I had so much fun making it!  It doesn't happen often
 Here's the tea pot, with lots of luscious 3 girl jam ribbon, some pretty paper flowers.
 The tea bag dispensor box would be the perfect favors, make one for each guest and add their name to the box for a place setting, then they get to take it home as well.  This stick pin I made myself.
 Another view of the tea pot, the lid comes off and would make a fantastic gift box for the guest of honor at this tea party, so after the party she gets to take the center piece home with some beautiful gift inside.
 On the display box I used an angel stick pin, one of the pearl stick pins and a gorgeous fabric covered button.  I love that fabric, It pulls the gold color from the paper perfectly.
 Look how gorgeous those tea bags match!!
 Close up of the gorgeous Pinque Peacock lovelies!
 There is also a card in the set, here is the close up of the pins I used, another Angel and pearl pins and on these I added caps so the recipient can remove the pins from the card and wear them.  I love that the decorations are part of the gift!

 Group shot! I'm so in love, did I mention that? lol  sorry I am just tickled with myself at how great this looks.  I hope you agree!
Full shot of the card, there are 2 tea bags in the pocket and there is a matching envelope as well.

So, what do you think, please let me know, I'd love to hear your remarks!!
If you want to go shop and get your own pins or some of those buttons, click the logo at the top of my post and it will take you right to the shop.
I am entering this gift set/centerpiece in the current challenge at Decorate to Celebrate, the theme is Tea party :)
