Our Tasha Tudor day this year consisted of a lovely Elegant outdoor picnic with our lovely tea cups.
Unlike last year when we hosted our Doll Fair we have had such a busy time lately that I didn't feel we could have such an elaborate event.
Hence our more sedate celebration of Tasha Tudor Day.
It was fairly late in the day when we actually got around to having this little ceremony and so the sun was setting.
However it did provide a beautiful backdrop for our Elegant picnic.
We also took out some of my most special Tasha Tudor books and I wanted to read as we sipped tea, or coffee in my case :)
I thought a vase might be in order but the younger ones picked them and put them in a basket which as it turns out was better as we had a few moments of near spills. So the vase would probably tipped over as well.
I like the basket of flowers better anyway!!
A is for Annabelle, Five Senses, Pumpkin Moonshine, were the ones we managed before the wild ones ran off and the light faded.
These two girls are looking so like each other now too.
She is such a fashion designer with a lot of flair!
I will be doing this again with any children who are interested........perhaps Rogan.
I made this Sourdough Fruit Cobbler, sourdough bread (stage one) the Chocolate 'fun buns,' muffins, buttermilk and strained my Greek yogurt.
Was this a memorable celebration of all the things I associate with Tasha Tudor and therefore want to celebrate and emulate in my life?
I do think it was and frankly I so loved the Elegant Picnic I know I will be doing this again.
Happy Tasha Tudor Day!!
Blessings to you and your homes,
