Fresh Recipes for a Great Tea Party
Tea party tips
Fill vases with fresh flowers, or place flowers in teacups designed to serve as centerpieces.
Remember that the tea should be the star of your afternoon gathering. The recipes we suggested will help you assemble a buffet that complements, rather than overpowers, your tea selections.
Mix and match fine teacups with sturdy plates.
Offer your guests copies of the recipes, printed on lively stock.
Set out a little poem or thoughtful quote. Try this one from Eleanor Roosevelt: "A woman is like a tea bag -- you never know how strong she is until she gets into hot water."
