“Come, let us have some tea and continue to talk about happy things.” ~Chaim Potok
What little girl (or little girl at heart) doesn’t love a tea party? When I was very young my mom made dainty “cinnamon rolls” from leftover pie dough and we had “tea.” Growing up I remember annual Mother Daughter Teas at church. Several years ago tea rooms were very popular for girlfriend outings.
So what’s with women and tea? I think it helps us remember more refined and genteel days when we were encouraged to “be ladies.” When “dressing up” in mom’s hat and heels and sipping tea was not only great fun, it was what we secretly hoped adult life would be like.
How long has it been since you’ve had a tea party? How about brewing a pot of tea and inviting “the girls” (daughters, granddaughters, friends you don’t see often enough) over?
