Last year my mom and I started a new tradition to host a summer afternoon tea. A few weeks ago we celebrated our Second Annual Summer Afternoon Tea Extravaganza.
We hosted twenty of my mom’s closest friends and family and served a multi course meal which included soup, sandwiches, desserts, biscuits and cookies, and a variety of teas. We set the table with my mom’s white china and used mismatched floral tea ware for a more informal feel. For centerpieces we used daisies in thrifted tumblers and added taper candles in glass holders for a classy look. We also set out hats on the chairs for the guests to wear. So much fun! Here are some pictures for you to enjoy!
We had a wonderful afternoon together laughing, eating, sipping tea, and enjoying each other’s company. There really is no better way to enjoy an afternoon than in the company of those you love and hold dear. Truly, life is better with friends and tea, of course! We can not wait to do this again next year.
