  1. Adaptable Themes: Tailor your theme to suit the ambiance of your location, be it the sunny outdoors or a cozy indoor setting.
  2. Weather-Resilient Setup: In areas with unpredictable weather like the Oregon coast, ensure your tea party setup is resilient to the elements, keeping your guests comfortable.
  1. Cupcake Creativity: Embrace the cupcake theme with creative flavors, decorations, and even a cupcake decorating station for added fun.
  2. Intimate Seating: Whether basking in the Californian sun or seeking shelter from coastal winds, create an intimate seating arrangement that fosters connection among friends.

      Hi Louise,
      It’s wonderful to see you here today. I know that you must be very busy preparing for your move. I was truly sad not to be able to make the trip to California for your goodbye send off this coming week. A couple of previous commitments made it impossible for me to fly out there. I sure hope that we can all meet up for a tea again in the future.
      I will always remember the fun times we had at my home for tea.

      Safe travels my friend.

    Happy Valentines’s Day!
    What a delightful path down memory lane as you share your tea of today and bygone events. It all has the aroma of creativity and imagination that makes each tea unique.
    Wonderful ideas for celebrating special occasions.

    I love to do “Tea” and always have a wonderful time. Lives up to expectations! Your descriptions are so right on. And your table settings are so beautiful– so much of my things are still in storage from my last move. Can not hold a tea here at home. Thankfully a new High Tea opened last April and we have made many visits there. Even celebrated my birthday there with friends last year. Had a wonderful time and so enjoyed the experience. Thanks for sharing your ideas. I am storing them up!!!!

      Dear Nancy,
      Thank you for your sweet comments. How lucky for you to have a new High Tea near you. The closest one where I live is an hour 1/2 away. I am grateful that there are a few around here…I know many of them have closed down. I recently heard that one of my favorites in California closed. This is why hosting a tea at home can be very special…that being said I am in the midst of preparing for one!

      Happy Valentine’s Day!
