Tea With Children #1

Taking Time for Tea with your children is a great way to teach them some special manners and how to quiet down and have a nice conversation with adults. I have several "out of print" books that are especially fun which you might look for on ebay, etc. I wish they would reprint Peter Rabbit's Cookery Book. Beatrix would love that!
My little Bee Teaset is from my store and just right - although sadly no cups and saucers...but not to worry as we can always find those!

A fun bunny table cloth adds so much to the moment!
Another favorite "out of print" you could look for is this one below:

And what could be better than some Camomile Honey and Lemon Tea from the Metropolitan Tea Company!

Take time this summer to go out in the garden and have tea with the little ones!

Fun post! Love all the animals having tea time! I was lucky enough to find the Winnie-the-Pooh teatime cookbook in the airport in London many years ago - I love it! Now I have to keep an eye out for Peter Rabbit's Cookery book!

My 5-year-old and I go to a place in NYC called "Alice's Tea Cup"(http://alicesteacup.com/) 4 times a year to celebrate the change of the seasons. They are extremely child-friendly, and the food is delicious!
Thanks for the lovely blog!! I reallt enjoy it!

That is absolutely adorable! The Winnie the Pooh book is great with the beehive and bee tea set :)

All the best,

I would have thought so too. Though tea time is not really popular in my country (or atleast I wasn't really exposed to it), but seeing it in movies and how well behaved on should be (I would cause I'd be afraid to break those pretty teapots and teacups LOL)- I guess it is a wonderful training for children :-) And fun bonding time.

The embroideries are beautiful.

Those embroidered animals are wonderful and so is the cute basket teapot set. I enjoyed all the photos.
