Care for a Spot of Tea?

Teatime can be a great way to relax on the coldest of winter days. Besides being a ritual that invokes feelings of serenity, teatime possesses a culture all its own. Whether you prefer it to be social or personal, teatime can be just the thing you need to escape the winter doldrums.

Hosting teatime is easier than ever when you plan ahead. Start out by making cute invitations, then send them out to 5 to 7 of your closest friends. The more intimate you keep your group, the easier it’ll be to prepare snacks for.

Next, it’s time to plan the menu. Try looking at tea magazines or by visiting tearooms to get a glimpse of the type of fare that is typically served. Light sandwiches, salads, or soups are usually the norm, and of course there are always scones! Make sure you have plenty of scones or biscuits on hand for your tea party. In addition, remember to stock up on creams, butters, preserves, and other accoutrements. Finally, select your tea. Try to choose one that everyone in your party will like. Unsure? Try the staple: English Breakfast.

Now it’s time to host it! Decorate your dining area with delicate fabrics, colorful china, or even play dress up with feather boas and festive hats! This fun approach to tea time can make anyone feel young again!
