Are you being served?

For her sixth birthday, Katie wanted to have a tea party and I have to admit I was totally excited. Who doesn't love a tea party? We pulled out all the stops, making hats, applying make-up and hiring a British servant for the night to explain the rules of a tea party and serve all those lovely delicacies (okay, I was the servant, but I was quite proper-no rubbish, you know). With that in mind, enjoy her pictures along with a few quotes I've found about tea.

“Come oh come ye tea-thirsty restless ones - the kettle boils, bubbles and sings, musically”

“Polly put the kettle on, we'll all have tea”

“Tea to the English is really a picnic indoors.”

“There is no trouble so great or grave that cannot be much diminished by a nice cup of tea”

“Each cup of tea represents an imaginary voyage.”

“May you always have walls for the winds, a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire, laughter to cheer you, those you love near you and all your heart might desire.”

“Tea pot is on, the cups are waiting, Favorite chairs anticipating, No matter what I have to do, My friend there's always time for you”

“Come, let us have some tea and continue to talk about happy things.”


  1. So cute! With two sons, we definitely don't have tea time. :) She's a doll!

  2. That's so fun! Cute pictures of cute little kids. You are a better mom than me. I didn't do tea parties. Just call me scrooge-mom.
