Old Fashioned Tea Party…
With a Wedding fast approaching, it’s just 3 weeks to go, Yikes! I’ve been searching for inspiration for a garden party wedding inspired thank you present. About a year ago I bought a print by the artist Tessa Galloway at a local art exhibition and last night I had a little look at her website to see if anything new caught my eye, and it did! Just the perfect thing.
These are just how I would like the sweet tables to look, covered in old table cloths and decked with cake stands and lots of scrumptious and delicious treats like cupcakes, treacle tart and ginger cake! I think this would make the perfect gift and be lovely memory of our special day.
Tessa loves to explore nostalgia and memories inspired by vintage postcards, old letters, found paper and antique curiosities. Her illustrations have a unique way of capturing the beautiful and decorative details of every day objects and places.
Tessa will be exhibiting again this weekend at The Dame Catherine Arts 18th Annual Summer Art Exhibition in Ticknall, Leicestershire.
27th-29th August 2011
