Tea Time Thursdays #2 and Features

Hi Friends! Thanks a lot for making the first link-up party successful. To state the truth, I was really apprehensive about how the party would turn out to be. I guess, 'first' and 'apprehension' walk hand in hand. The moment I hit the 'Publish Post' button, I said a little prayer. I though I would not have more than 5-6 links but we  had almost 100 link-ups. Pretty good for the first time, right? The best part is I now have new friends and a lot more ideas pinned on Pinterest ;)

It's time to feature some of the posts. Trust me, I had a very tough time choosing the following out of the 100 entries. The features are in no particular order.

Ashlyn's Play Kitchen by Hello Newman's:

Anne and her husband transformed the entertainment center they bought at a thrift store for $25 into a beautiful play kitchen for their daughter. Ashlyn's kitchen has 4 burners, oven, sink with faucet and a cute refrigerator. 

Camille and her Petite Pots on Ciao Newport Beach:

Fabiana took us to her friend Camille's garden, which is full of succulents and drought resistant plants in beautiful petite pots. Camille uses various sizes and styles of pots and plants.

Under the Sea by Color Dekor:

Patty of Color Dekor shared the decor for her Under the Sea Tea Party. The shades of blue and shells are bound to remind you of your beach vacations.

Cover Your Cornhole by Tres Chere:

This beautiful bench was made out of a cornhole platform and the entire space was transformed for less than
$50. Check out more pictures on their blog.

Oreo Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies by Joyful Baker:

Keep aside the weight woes for sometime and try out these yummy cookies by Joyful Baker. The recipe looks pretty easy and the cookies look delicious. What say... should we try baking some?

My Cookbook by Dream in Color:

This colorful cookbook would be a treasure to have. The cute apron on the cover tells me to grab mine and start working around in the kitchen.

Pani puri and Sev puri by Cherish Dream Live:

Through this post Nayana takes us to the Chaat stalls on the streets of India. Pani puri is one of the most liked  dishes in India. I was drooling after seeing this picture. Nayana is ready to share the recipe, if anybody wants. Just drop her a comment.
