Jennifer Miller Symonds hosted a white-themed tea party for her sister and guests at her apartment. The decorations, food, and favors were all inspired by her light, white apartment and its airy, open-sky vistas -- the windows were framed for the occasion with fragile white sweet peas lined up on the sills.
Here, the buffet is watched over by a white heart flanked by the first initials of the bride- and groom-to-be. They were created from paper roses glued onto foam board. The white finger food includes sandwiches, heart-shaped cheeses, iced cookies, candied grapes, meringues, and dragees.
A compote was filled with small cards bearing events and dates to be scheduled in the year ahead. Each guest selected a card and wrote her own name on the one she had chosen. Then all the cards were put into a scrapbook that became a monthly calendar of events, as well as a permanent reminder of who attended the shower. The plans include meeting Darcy for ice cream or a night at the movies.
