Throw a Mother’s Day Tea Party!

With Mother’s Day fast approaching, I thought I’d share this article from the latest issue of Joie about planning a tea party.  Written by Jasmine Norrie of Betty Le Bonbon Cheek Boutique, it includes definitions of the different types of tea events (think Afternoon and High Tea) as well as tips and recipes for throwing your own tea party.

Wouldn’t it be a lovely idea to celebrate Mom with a tea thrown in her honor? Plus, it’s a nice excuse to make finger sandwiches and to sit out in the yard drinking tea and/or Champagne!

Thanks to both Jasmine Norrie of Betty Le Bonbon Cheek Boutique for writing the article and to Samantha Walker who contributed the illustrations used in the article. Be sure to check out Samantha’s shop too,  she just might have some digital kits for sale that you could use for invitations to your tea. I like the Damask Kit.

And if you need a source for good tea, try Harney & Sons, it’s where I buy most of our tea.  The Soho Blend is my latest obsession.
