I'm revisiting a pair of tea parties today -- some special memories from favorite teas past and present!
Perhaps my favorite had to be the two make-and-take teas my friend Barb and I put on.
We drew together a small group of friends, did a creative project and then had tea! You can find the original posts HERE and HERE. We made handpainted silk scarves one time (below) and twig wreaths another.
Then it was time for tea! Of course we brought out favorite vintage teacups...
...and vintage teapots, too.
And we prepared quite a feast!
Party favors are a must. One one year I did little bookmarks and Barb made individual rose and carnation bouquets.
The other tea included a little plant to take home.
Of course you have to have plenty of tasty goodies!
And we had plenty! Savory...
And even some that were healthy, too!
But best of all was good company, good manners and good fun!
