Alice is the 'hostess with the mostess' at
TEA IN MY CUP.
Every day you will find new tea party ideas, menus and recipes from Alice.
Some time ago, I participated in Alice's Pay-It-Forward.
Alice promised to send me a surprise gift sometime during the next year and she did!
It was like receiving a tea party in the mail!
Alice even included a CD of soothing, relaxing classical music, perfect for a tea party.
Tchaikovsky at Tea Time - A Refreshing Blend for Body and Spirit.
This is music that suits my taste to a 'tea'!
Golden Mudan tea wreaths
"Long black leaves blended with golden tips to form a beautiful wreath. The liqour is a pale brown. The aroma has honey notes with hints of chocolate."
Note the lovely "Five O'clock Tea" napkins! Aren't they pretty? I love them!
Alice, thank you for this lovely book
"Taking Tea at The Savoy"
"To take tea at The Savoy is to combine tradition with all the elegance and sophistication that befits one of London’s great hotels. Anton Edelmann, The Savoy’s Maître Chef des Cuisines, offers exquisite recipes with tales that conjure up leisure time in a bygone era, set against the romantic story of tea and its journey to the West. Here is afternoon tea at its most stylish—aromatic brews, delicate porcelain, impeccably presented dainties. Indulge in feather-light palmiers or cinnamon madeleines. Savor delicate cucumber sandwiches or fragrant honey and ham biscuits for an al fresco summer tea, or luscious cakes to chase away winter doldrums. Taking Tea at the Savoy is a book to inspire endless afternoons of delight."

I added this beautiful scented teacup candle and bee spoon for a little ambiance. I got these from Francie at THE SCENTED COTTAGE.
I thank you from the bottom of my teacup, Alice! I would have picked any of these items for myself - you know me well!
