Tea Party

Do you love a tea party?  I sure do!

I have experienced High Tea twice.  Once at the Empress Hotel in Victoria, B.C. and once at The Grand Del Mar in San Diego, CA.  Both were wonderful!  They were special events, memory makers.

Well that started a love of tea parties.  I love High Tea - Low Tea or just plain tea and biscuits.

We have fun tea parties at home too.  We dress in our finery, pull out the collection of fine bone china tea cups, no they don't match, they are an eclectic mix that I love.
We set the table with all the fun stuff.
The first course is fruit, the second little sandwiches 
(cucumber, egg salad, peanut butter and jelly for the little girls since that is their favorite, etc)
the third course is an array of wonderful confections.
You can certainly have more courses - you can easily add in a cheese course.
And throughout you offer wonderful tea.
I do cheat a bit and also make a pot of hot chocolate in case the girls would prefer that. 
Its really all about the fun.  Getting together, making memories, and having a special table set just for them.

Below are some additional pictures of fun tea parties.
Summer is a great time to have a tea party outside - a garden party...

Have a great spring day - hope you have a lovely cup of tea too.
