a tea party


A few weeks ago my mother threw a delightful English tea party - a perfect dreary afternoon with friends. We pulled out the china and had everything from scones to tea sandwiches to truffles. We went for a shabby-chic style, with mismatched plates and dishes...just over-the-top girliness. My favorite happened to be the biscotti ;)

I blow up my twitter feed on Sundays with updates and thoughts about downton abbey - ugh. I won't regale  you here with my downton musings, but I do wish so badly that we could have tea like they do on a daily basis. sigh!

check out the video that goes with this post here!

  2. This looks so great! Too often we have the china as a mere decoration and not something we really use. Now I want to take mine out too :)

  3. That looks and sounds like so much fun! Are those tea sandwiches in the last photo? Whatever they are, they look delicious! For the Downton premier a couple of weeks ago, my friend and I had a little tea party with just us two. She made scones and we sipped tea. It was fun!
