Last week I decided it was time for another tea party. In Belize the hot dry summer days are over for now, and the rainy humid season has started. During the hot months one does not feel like drinking hot tea, only lots of sweet iced tea.
But, when it is dark and rainy outside, what's better than to light some candles, decorate a table and brew some tea. Invite some friends first, and here's what we will serve:
Homemade cookies dipped in chocolate.
Some Brookside chocolate covered fruit candy. The best!
Happy cow cheese.
...and some chips brought by one of the friends completes the perfect tea snack.
For the centerpiece we used my cut glass bottle.
Some of our latest teacups that we used:
Dilmah teas...apple cinnamon and blueberry vanilla.
The three happy friends at the party. They loved it!
It is especially rewarding for me to host a party like this and then to hear the remark, "I have never done this before." And then to see the smile on their faces and the sparkle in their eyes, knowing that one of their girlish dreams have probably just come true, is a very fulfilling and rewarding feeling.
