tea for two – February styling the seasons

tea for two - February Styling the Seasons

I wanted to do something a little different for this months Styling the Seasons. Since it is still bitterly cold, I wanted to come up with a fun activity that would involve Bailey, and that would fill a chilly February afternoon. I thought that since it is the month where we think of the ones we love, that that I would style a ‘Tea for two’ for Bailey and Bear – as there is no one Bailey loves more than her bear.

For this months Styling the Seasons Katy and Charlotte have teamed up with Laura Ashley to help them launch their Spring range. 12 of us regular Styling the Seasons bloggers have been lucky enough to choose a Laura Ashley product and roll of wall paper from their Spring range to help style our February surface.

I selected the Clayton Utility Pendant light, which I instantly fell in love with, and teamed it with this really pretty Blue Bird wallpaper. To make it a real party, I also made some bunting and party hats for Bailey and her bear. We cut out bear-shaped sandwiches using a cookie cutter to serve with milk, little pots of berries (the bears favourite) and some macaroons.

I have seen some of the other styled posts already, and they are all really beautiful. I am amongst a bunch of clever creative ladies. If however my styling is your favourite, I would love it if you could take the time to vote for me. Many thanks.

You’ll be pleased to know that she really enjoyed her tea. Apparently sandwiches that are bear shaped taste better – and it’s true they do, I might have had one or two, turns out the bear wasn’t that hungry.
