It's 4th of July weekend for those who live in the U.S., and that means a 3-day weekend for some. The holiday falls on a Saturday this year. However you choose to spend it, there is much fun to be had this weekend!
Easter is a great theme for an afternoon tea. Creating a springtime theme of chicks, bunnies, and pastel eggs pays tribute to this special holiday. Whether the tea takes place outside or inside, greet your guests with festive garlands such as the one in this photograph. Pastel eggs are strung end to end, and the garland is hung by cheery yellow ribbons. A footed glass dish and glass hold more eggs. What a festive vignette!
Cherry blossoms are beginning to bloom! Celebrate the first promise of spring by setting your table with charming cherry blossom motifs and themes. These frosted votive candle shades make a lovely gift for guests, too!

Nothing says "Spring has arrived!" more than butterflies and flowers. Why not include both as the theme for a tea party? Including a draped green napkin, fluted champagne glass, and small green nest at each guest's place adds to the whimsy of the day. Consider accessorizing a side table with more spring blossoms, dishes with colorful flowers, and a lamb. This setting is perfect for delightful conversation.
