The tea party may not have been intended to slow down & enjoy the moment but I think those things may be part of what it provided. I've been reading & seeing on tv that we need to do both in this crazy, top-speed, multi-tasking world. Tea, grocery store cookies & grapes sound perfect for enjoying conversation with friends & Fall decorations on your lovely porch!

Your porch looks festively seasonal. We live in an area with a lot of wind and outdoor decorating is a huge challenge, so I might be a teensy be envious.

There are tea times that are about the food and ritual and then there are the times they are about the gathering with friends.

It seems likes gatherings like tea parties and just getting together have gone by the wayside...everyone is just too busy being busy. Yesterday I was busy lol. Emma got her first few braces on her teeth. Its a two hour drive away to see the orthodontist, but Regina has an Indigo book store and I was able to pick up a copy of the Dutch House. It will be my "waiting at the rink" reading! Have a good one, Nicole.

Brilliant idea and am delighted it was so enjoyable for you all!

Love your decorations, too.

Our high today is forecast to be 69*F so perhaps autumn is here at last. It's so dry that the stressed trees won't be very colorful this year. We need rain!

Great idea! I think I'll follow your example. You're always full of inspiration. Thanks for sharing.


I love the tea party idea and your porch looks so cozy!


I love fall weather. This is my favorite time of year!


I never think about tea until I have a cup and then it's why didn't I do this earlier. Definitely bring it back!
