Tea Party On-the-Go Anti-Procrastination Tuesday

Today I am linking this post with Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.

I am seriously procrastinating this week!  My husband and I are taking a quit holiday this weekend but this week seems to be full of random to-do lists.  I really need to figure out what to pack, and I’m hoping to be able to pack light, as in warm weather clothing.  Still, there is always time for tea.

Wednesdays I spend at a Homeschool co-op, waiting for my oldest son to take three classes.  The first class starts at 10 AM.  The last one ends at 3:45 PM.  Yes, that sounds like a lot of waiting time, and it would be, if there were not many of us moms doing the same thing.

Kind of a funny photo of me but the teapot looks good.

I threw my hot pot, my tea pot, a few tea cups and some snacks in my bags for a tea party on-the-go.

This was a no-frills tea party which meant no sugar cubes, no creamer, and no snack plates.  I brewed one pot of tea, which was lychee.  Lychee is a great no-frills tea because it is naturally sweet.

I grabbed some simple cookies from Trader Joe’s.  Those Meyer lemon cookies are so amazing!  The kettle corn cookies are like eating a popcorn ball, without the work.

I wrap each cup snug so they won’t chip or break during transport.  I usually wrap my tea pot the same way.  When someone walked by and commented on the cute table or the fun idea of having tea, I invited them to join us.  It’s surprising how many women won’t “impose” but I made them, if they had time.  Everyone enjoyed it.
