Really it's about enjoying the company of friends and relaxing together....spicing up your conversation with a cup of tea and a cookie, scone or piece of cake!
Today is Tea Time Tuesday and I participate with Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage and Inspirations and others to celebrate the day!
Yesterday I showed photos and information explaining how you can cut up old linens and make some lovely folding chair covers for your garden tea party! In two weeks I will be having a tea party in my backyard and using all 24 sets. I originally planned this particular event for last summer but health issues caused me to have to wait. Now is the TIME!
I will be baking up a storm and serving Afternoon Tea with finger sandwiches, scones, tarts, tea, etc. Everything homemade. If you are willing to make things from scratch - this means chicken salad and egg salad from scratch. This means making scones from scratch and chocolate peppermint brownies from scratch or any recipes you have for Afternoon Tea Treats!! From scratch means it is relatively inexpensive. CONVENIENCE COSTS money! Learn to do it yourself and save!
