It all started with a cookie recipe!

Last week, I came across this wonderful blog 
Kristin shares some wonderful recipes and I really like her step by step tutorials.
Her blog is beautiful and her recipes are amazing!
You all should pay her a visit!

My daughter and I tried one of her cookie recipes over the weekend.
What can I say? They are sooo good!!! :)

We decided to go ahead and put these cookies to good use before they all 
disappeared and do a small tablescape. An afternoon tea for two.
This is what we came up with. Very simple but so fun!

The little Easter sprinkles are so cute!

We made a small centerpiece with some little birds

We used my Campodimonte porcelain candle holders for a 
more Spring look.

We added some rose napkin rings

And we used my special tea pot.
I bought it back in 1981 during a very rare and unforgettable trip 
to East Berlin, when the Berlin wall was still up.

A little tea

So, what do you guys think?
Did we do ok?

Kristin, thank you again for sharing this great and easy recipe with us!
Everybody loved them!
Thank you all for taking the time to stop by and visit!
