i am an american…in america, we “play” tea party…little girls do it and as an adult, i was known to throw an adult-style tea party.
however, yesterday, i attended a high tea -my first. it was every bit as lovely as i imagined a real tea party would be when i would attempt one. i realized yesterday, that i was only ever “playing” at it though.
my husband pre-warned me that it was meant to be quite lady-like and i shouldn’t do any thing embarrassing (who me? Lol)
i felt out of my depth for sure!
that is a really good thing for me.
it challenges me.
new experiences drag us out of our comfort zone. they, also, open us up to some really great experiences.
elegant china tea cups…
delicate danties…(ok, for my country friends…chow)…
i think the English might just be onto a winner with this one!
it was great fun!
tea anyone? i think i need practice.
