Planning a Classy but Fresh Tea Party


Merriment :: Upper Crust Social Club Tea Party by Heather Crosby and Kathy Beymer

I’m working on planning an afternoon baby shower and looking for inspiration. I want the party to be classy, yet not too formal.


Today I fell upon this beautiful tea party, hosted by blog authors’ Kathy Beymer of Merriment Design and Heather Crosby of inspiredbyeverything who started a group called the UCSC – Upper Crust Social Club. It’s a group of ladies in Chicago who plan soirees to gather with friends and have an excuse to make things.
