I love to have friends over for tea! Really, I do. It’s so much fun to decorate a table, pull out my best china, and talk around the table about, well, just about everything. I’m sure you can imagine the things I’ve heard over tea. (I do have a rule about this type of talking, and I make sure all at the table know it, if it’s said here, it stays here.)
Tablescapes for tea can be as simple or elaborate as you want. Check out a few on my Pinterest board. (Click on Tablescapes to see ideas or Pinterest to see my whole page.) There are some great recipes and teacups there, too. It’s rare for my guests not to have anything to talk about, but just in case I have a few Conversation Cards at hand. Here are a few you can make for yourself and your guests.
One of the best things at any tea party is the cute little sandwiches. Don’t you agree? There’s nothing like cucumbers and cream cheese, or thinly sliced salmon and radishes, or how about Kentucky Benedictine. The first time I had a Kentucky Benedictine Roll-up I thought I had finally made it to the great Heavenly Banquet. Seriously that filling tops the list in delicious ‘sandwich’ spreads.
When all is said and done there is nothing like good friends, good food, and good conversation.
Blessings to you and yours!
These are such great ideas! Hanging out with friends and family is always so much fun and this is a fabulous way to make them feel special. Hope you’re having a fantastic day, CoCo
I love inviting friends for tea, coffee, or whatever. Blessings to you and yours!
It sounds so fun! I would love to have friends over for tea, but it seems everyone is so busy these days it’s hard to get people together.
I’ve learned to invite and not worry about everyone attending. It never works for me to ask each guest which day will work best for them. Sometimes I have everyone. Sometimes I have only one. Once, I had no one. Be sure to ask for RSVP’s. That way you won’t be surprised. Blessings to you and yours!
