Today I am linking this post with Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.
This post is also linked with New Nostalgia for Anti-Procrastination Tuesday.
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.
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.
