Afternoon Tea Party

 tp

One of my favourite traditions with mom has been our afternoon tea dates. It started with me inviting her over to  my doll house and serving tea in mini teacups { that came with barbie and her kitchen set }. We continued our sessions every afternoon I came back from school – tea for her , milk and biscuits for me over silly school stories. Fast forward many years, and even today, I look forward to our endless gossip sessions over tea. There’s something about afternoon tea parties that I absolutely love – the prospect of the afternoon lazily  stretching in front of you , with nothing really on the agenda – just some close friends chatting away to glory. Lately, I have been aching to host one for my girls and here’s a round-up of the things I have my heart on –3-30-2014 1-23-56 PM

Tea-pot Set, Appetizer Plates, Tea-bag Caddy, Cookies, 3-tier Server 

You can always order scones or macaroons from your local bakery. These sandwiches are perfect to pair with the sweetness galore and very easy to make. Make a trip to a thrift store and you might find some really cute vinatage china. Keep it simple or go all out – tea parties can be a great stage to bring out the hostess inside you. Don’t worry about etiquetees. Its okay if you don’t know which side to keep your spoon after stirring the tea – just dont forget to have fun ! Check out some of my “hostess with the mostess” picks on Pinterest and let me know some one of yours 🙂

P.S. If you are in the Boston area, you have to try the afternoon tea at The Langham – nothing like it!
