Last Christmas 2013, I threw a tea party for my godchildren at our Bacoor home. (I know, super late post!) It was attended by just two of my godchildren along with their mommies and several cousins. I think I had a total of 10 guests then which I fed with my own cooking and some store-bought fruits, nuts and candies. Of course, we had tea as drink to complete the experience.
It was my first time to host a tea party and it proved to be fun and challenging for me at the same time. Because the tea party was scheduled at 3pm, I went to the supermarket the day before to buy the supplies I needed. On the day of the event itself, I woke up early to bake some chocolate chip cookies and a red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting, prepare some bite-sized whole wheat sandwiches and whip up my special linguini carbonara.
It was a good thing that my two sisters joined us for the weekend that time so I had assistants to help me prepare the dining table. By 2pm, everything was properly set up so I finally had the time to fix myself up. My guests arrived a little past 3pm and the eating and drinking began right after. The little feast I prepared got wiped out soon enough and I was more than happy to know all my guests liked everything I prepared for them.
Here are some photos my sister managed to take during the party:
I hope this becomes a tradition of sorts for me and my grandchildren and who knows, next time we’ll be joined by my own children as well.
Tea party is so much fun, indeed. Have you done something like this before? Who were your guests and how did it turn out?
