Presenting your tea on a three-tier tray, above, is an elegant tradition that began during the Victorian era. For the savories course, choose tradition teatime favorites such as Cucumber Cheese Canapés, Parmesan-Chive Gougères, and Tarragon-Poppy Seed Chicken Salad. These would go well with a cup of T2’s Ding Dong Oolong Tea.
I enjoy beautiful things. Fine linens, crystal, china, and flowers can set the mood for the whole day! Nothing says “I care, I love you, and you are worth everything I am putting into this tea.” The colors alone are so soothing and beautiful. Beautiful china teapots can tell one the colors to begin to set “Tea Time.”
Perfectly said! That’s how I feel about table decorating, home décor, ect. Beautiful.
I too love beautiful china and place settings and have many beautiful cups and saucers. The bad thing about it that I don’t know or have anyone to have a lovely tea party with!
Wish you lived close by. I’m in Western MA. Would love to have an afternoon tea party with someone. Patricia
Colleen, where do you live? I love to have friends over for tea.
You could invite your next door neighbor for tea, Colleen. Or join the local Women of the Moose and I’m sure there will be plenty of new friends there who would love to help you prepare an afternoon tea and join you.
I’m in Gatineau, Canada.. I also would love a tea party.–I would invite you both, Colleen and Patricia. . Regards. and God bless.
