A Spring Tea Party

Franci 13 May 2016 Food Friends Parties

In our living room stands a beautiful wooden display cabinet that has been in my family for 3 generations. It displays a selection of pretty tea cups, teapots, milk pitchers and sugar pots I have been given from my grandma, my mum, and Ben’s grandma Tschetter. I love them all, but they’re of course too pretty and special to use on a regular basis… with the end result that they never get used! This is a problem that needed a solution.

So I organized a tea party with some friends! And what better reason to get a bunch of girls together to drink tea out of pretty cups than springtime? The first weekend of April we got together over some lovely food (contributed by everyone), a vast selection of teas and tea pots (some people also brought theirs to share) and had a lovely, lovely time chatting and forgetting a bit about everything else.

I think we just started a new tradition!

Lovely idea! Hannah and I were just looking through some photos of dress-up tea parties we hosted once upon a time.

Hurray for new traditions involving tea! I’ve enjoyed using the two teapots I have when friends have come over and all opted for tea instead of coffee. If you were here longer, they could certainly make a useful appearance this weekend! Glad we’ll be seeing you soon!

Hi Franci,

Very pretty! and it’s lovely to do now that your girls are old enough to appreciate fine things.

I suggested this idea to Ilse for her birthday too, but it didn’t work out with the timing/friends in the end - maybe next year! She definitely likes prettiness and elegance as well.

Love, Laurel
