This year, I hosted a Mother's tea at my church. I had to bring ALL my tea cups, formal settings, wine glasses, linens, fresh flowers, decorations, and gifts for the attendees. I loved it! I made chocolate cups and placed fresh strawberries in it. I scrapped some bookmarks and gave out tea lights, Cashew Rocha, tea bags and gift boxes. Oh what work but soo worth it. My mother, 2 of my 3 sisters and niece came. At my table, two friends from MOPs (Mothers of Preschoolers) and a friend from my Bible Study plus her darling teen daughter joined me.
In addition, locally we have an excellent tea parlour and some of my mommy group friends and I spent hours enjoying a formal tea and chatting. I've been with this group of women for 5 years. We have evolved but more importantly, we have grown closer each year. I love that we have extablished this Tea tradition together each May.
