It all started with raspberry macarons…

…jewel-like lemon thumbprints, lavender macarons, and coconut crisps. Which trailed off to more cookies. And even more cupcakes.

Then came the bright violet flowers in a pot… colorful mismatched mugs …and more flowers in pretty bright pink from Borina (thanks darling). Like the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland, I had a blast organizing yesterday’s tea party. With all the pinks and purples, it was no surprise that Lewis Caroll's story ended up being the theme (in my head).

Small and cozy with no one yelling “Off with her head!” Just how I like it.

The silly bf tried to help by
making browned butter frosting

Glad you could make it guys!
I can’t wait to hear your feedback on the stuff. *Hugs

Once our guests left, I put together a mini plate for the neighbor

...and the bf immediately
started prepping his grill for dinner

The Soprano's season finale, a glass of wine,
and fish grilled on cedar wood. Ahh... bliss

Damn, that looks so good, especially the cupcakes. Your macaroons all look so good too I found myself telling my husband all about them this weekend, the green tea ones, lavender ones . . . I keep thinking about them.

Do you sell the cupcakes too--the coconut ones and matcha ones look AMAZING. What about a variety pack like this? I would buy one asap!

Any chance you'd share your recipes?

You are an amazing baker, at least if your treats taste anywhere near as good as they look. I'll be looking for my invitation for the next tea party in the mail. Just kidding!
