Once upon a time there were 4 gorgeous little girls, they were the prettiest and best dressed girls in the land and one day they happened upon a magical tea party in the forest.
There were cupcakes, strawberry mousse cups, rose and violet macarons, pink cake pops, sweets, lollipop cookies and finger sandwiches and a magical far away tree....
This isn't a fairy tale it's real life (well ok maybe the bit about the magical far away tree's not real) but it wasn't an accident these girls happened upon this tea party.

Elizabeth from LaToriana had a wonderful idea for a photo shoot set in the forest and was kind enough to invite my daughters and I along.
Daneve from Ah Tissue helped set the scene with hanging pom poms and Naomi V Photography took the amazing photo's.
and of course I made the food and styled the little tea table.
It was such fun, and so lovely to meet Elizabeth Murphy of LaToriana in person as I have been a fan and customer of her store for a number of years.
You can see from the photo's just how divine the clothes are I fell in love with the new Little Miss J range, LaToriana sources some of the best brands from Australian and New Zealand. See more pics at her Forest Tea Party La Toriana style blog post.

White Chocolate Cream Pots with Strawberry. Makes 6 to 8 small shot glass size serves.
Here is a recipe for the Strawberry White Chocolate Pots, which are not a real mouse at all. I just decided on the morning of the shoot that I wanted to make them so I needed something super easy:
You will need demitasse coffee spoons to fit into the shot glasses or Tracy Lau had an interesting idea to use Ikea kid spoons on her blog
Refrigerate until set.
Whip another 100ml cream to hard peak stage and then very very carefully fold into white chocolate mixture.
Chop some strawberries into small pieces and pop a tiny amount into the bottom of small glasses (shot glasses). Carefully spoon in white chocolate mixture. If you like you can add a small spoon into the glasses prior to adding the chocolate mixture and it will set standing up like in the pics.
Slice strawberry and add a pretty slice to the top. Refrigerate until set.
