Marie Antoinette Tea Party

Last night, my friend Alyssa and I had a Marie Antoinette tea party! We watched the movie Marie Antoinette (such a beautiful movie, Sofia Coppola is a goddess) while dining on a French baguette with three kinds of cheeses, dried cranberries, grapes, blackberries, and raspberries. We sipped "Marie Antoinette" tea from this amazing restaurant called Paris in a Cup that makes their own loose leaf tea while nibbling on scones with jelly and lemon curd, homemade coconut macaroons, a fruit tart, two petite fours, and little chocolates. It was lovely! I have getting more into tea lately so this was perfect. :)

I don't think I could even explain the amount of jealousy I have right now. Seriously, a Marie Antoinette tea party? Ahh this looks so lovely.

Those teacups are so so gorgeous by the way.
