As spring is in full swing and summer is about to start, I think it's time for a Garden Tea Party. An outdoor tea party with good friends is a wonderful way to celebrate the start of a beautiful summer season.
We will brew some excellent iced teas and a pot or two of hot tea for a few ladies who prefer their teas hot. And then there are scones and lemon curd, savory tea sandwiches and sweets, bite-size desserts and treats, and a few other goodies.
It's a time to enjoy each other's company, laugh, and celebrate friendship.
I love playing a little bit with fun table decorations like a pretty table cloth and some fresh flowers. But I refuse to stress out about it and think everything has to be "perfect." It's supposed to just be fun.
If you're hesitating to have a tea party or casual tea get-together because you think everything has to be flawless and it's just too much work, I'm here to tell you that's not so.
Good friends don't care if your house is immaculate and if you've brought out the silver.
They just want to enjoy your company, drink good tea and eat fun food.
I hope you take the time to enjoy the warm days and good friends and make some of my excellent iced teas.
