Did you ever throw a tea party for your dollies when you were little, or maybe you were able to include a few friends too? Having tea parties was one of my favorite things to do when I was little; I thought that was a part of being a grown-up lady. Eventually I began to wonder why my mother never went to tea parties and in fact none of the women I knew went to tea parties. Why was that? I was determined to change that when I grew up. So, one lovely October day, my mother and I hosted a tea party for all the special women in our lives and it was wonderful. There wasn't a frowning face in the entire room. We vowed to not let this be last time we had tea together.
After that life changed in many ways and it just wasn't possible to have tea with these special women. There were still plenty of opportunities for tea with my girls. Sometimes they hosted; sometimes I did. It was always special and fun. This year I decided to make it a proper tea with a proper tea service. My daughters are old enough now to be trusted with china and old enough to be in charge of making some of the treats to go with our tea. Since my mom was here visiting, we had a proper tea party on a summer afternoon, and now that our time here is coming to a close I am looking forward to hosting another tea party (or maybe a whole bunch) for all the little girls and little girls at heart in my life. In the mean time, I'm just dreaming and thought I'd share my favorite tea time picks:
