How will you manage that?
It’s easy when you plan your tea parties with seasonal events and projects.
Baking holiday cookies
For example, do you need to make dozens of holiday cookies or decorate baskets filled with delicious scones?
Set up your kitchen, get together with friends and family, and get it done.
The Red Hat party you've been waiting for
Want to get together with your girlfriends?
How about a Red Hat Society meeting at a local tearoom?
Casual holiday party at home
Or you could have a bling party. Wear your favorites and bring some lonely jewelry to swap.
Informal parties are easier to arrange.
Set aside one area of the house for your guests, like the kitchen nook.
Ordinary table decor will work with mix-and-match china.
Just add one or two holiday accents and some Christmas music in the background.
Are you hosting a Christmas tea for confirmed teaparty lovers?
Make it a recipe potluck.
Ask each guest to bring 2 or 3 favorite teaparty treats with copies of their recipes.
Arrange to have both savories and sweets so you can avoid sugar overload.
Decorate the tree
Do you want help decorating the tree?
Try a round robin. Participants can offer a different green tea tasting and treat at each house.
Include an ornament swap at the beginning to stimulate your creativity.
If you want to give take-home favors, keep it as simple as some green whole leaf or teabag samples and a Christmas cookie tied together in holiday fabric with a cheerful ribbon.
Have a happy holiday!
