Even as a little girl, I loved tea sets. This was probably because my mother loved little tea sets and every so often I would suddenly be gifted a little porcelain tea set.
In middle school I even sent out little invitations to my girlfriends, inviting them over for a "Victorian Tea Party."It makes me smile to think of my Mum pulling out the lacy tablecloths, setting out her "Old Country Roses" tea set for us to use, and even make us little cucumber sandwiches, all set prettily on fancy plates.
Right on time, my girlfriends showed up. All in pretty dresses, hats on their heads and gloves on their hands.
I very much look forward to introducing Eloise to tea sets and parties.
I hope she'll enjoy them as much as I did as a girl, and already in my minds eye I can see having little tea parties with her in the backyard - I'm probably more excited for that than she will be!
I found this picture a while ago, and I just loved the instructions and the image itself.
Have a lovely Friday!
