There are four of us that take an Autumn trip somewhere in our state every year. Last year, we took the Aufderheide Scenic Byway just east of Eugene, OR. We planned this lovely tea party under the umbrella of old firs and other trees in a horse camp along the route. You see, some of us had wine but we all enjoyed a hot cup of tea, candles, a picnic, sweets and little drizzles as we laughed and loved this moment together. One friend brought her grandmother's Chintz to share so it made our tea party in the woods even more special. http://whitebreadandjam.blogspot.com/2014/10/chasing-autumn-in-oregon-portland.html

We hosted a wedding shower for my DIL 2 years ago....and made it an outdoor tea party. I feel like it was the party I was born to throw! I blogged about it here: http://thevelvetlemon.blogspot.ca/2013/04/so-many-pretty-things-and-bridal-shower.html

I bought each of my 3 granddaughters (ages 4, 8, and 11) a flowered porcelain tea set. They love them! We play with them often, pretending to be high-society ladies. I insist we use our best table manners and act lady-like! It's great training!
