Tea with Heart of Gold and Luxury

Tea for Two for Guest Poster Alison!
Hello Swooners!  I’m thrilled to introduce you to Alison of the fabulous blog, Heart of Gold and Luxury.  Alison and I are actually together, hard at work right now on a photo shoot in Brooklyn!  She is what I like to call a DIY extraordinaire that can wear a heckuva lot of different hats.  While we create some swoon, enjoy a high tea DIY with Alison.
Hi everyone! My name is Alison and I write and edit Heart of Gold and Luxury, a lifestyle blog dedicated to fashion, food, decorating and the occasional DIY.  I am so excited to be here posting at Everswoon! Today I am here to share with you an easy DIY that will make your  day even more swoon worthy – homemade tea bags using fresh mint.  

Incorporating something handmade into your bridal shower or wedding day can make the occasion even more special.  I chose a Tea for Two theme for this table setting, as I can’t think of anything to be more enchanting.  One way to pamper your guests is to make your own tea bags, which can serve as an easy and inexpensive favor.  Serve with feminine little bites like light pink petits fours and tea sandwiches to make this gathering even more memorable. Continue for directions…
Keep swooning….

    So cute. I actually have that white dish with gold trim in my bathroom. I used to have it on my nightstand. I bought it at the thrift store.

    Now I actually have a tech question for you. How do you add that “read more” link to the
    bottom of your posts? This might require another skype date. ;)
