A conversation between me and my sister:
Me: Let’s have a tea party for the kids.
My sister: Why? Do you have a tea set?
Me: I got 4!
My sister: Wow! For a non tea drinker like you, I can’t believe you got 4 sets!
Me:( just laughing)
Unlike my sister who loves green tea, warm tea or just about any kind of tea, I only drink flavored iced tea. I have a collection of teapots, tea cups and saucers of various styles and colors. They are bits and pieces that I collected to create a set. Instead of allowing these tea sets to collect dust in my cabinet, I’d like to put them to good use and so the tea party is born!
So last Sunday I hosted the first ever mini tea party for my nieces. It was so much fun we (me, my sis and cousin) decided to have a themed tea party ( or any mini themed party on a budget) for the kids once a month. But if no budget, no party! hehehe! We will keep it fairly simple but fun and memorable for the kids.
For the Food:
In addition to marshmallow tea cups that I made, we had assorted cookies for the kids to nibble on . Sis baked some dried cranberries and white chocolate chip cookies while my cousin Rome prepared adobo flakes bruschetta. You can check out their food blogs for the recipe. Others were store bought.
DIY tiered serving tray that I made. I used hot glue to hold all the pieces together.
I made marshmallow tea cups which were a hit!
mini cupcakes were store bought

The kids had lemon flavored tea ( Nestea to be exact) This tea set is not expensive. I bought the cups for Php29 ( 4 cups), the teapot for Php70. The green saucers are from a different set which I will use next time.
Sis and Cousin had Apple, cinnamon and raisin tea while I had my own secret drink! hihihi!
Want some tea?
Plants strategically placed for the venue to look like a garden. hehehe! How I wish we had a beautiful garden where we can hold mini tea parties like this.
Big thank you to my wonderful sister and cousin who took part in making this party an unforgettable one. One of them will host the next tea party. I just hope my other nieces will be able to join this time. Sis made the party more fun for the kids by holding a cake decorating contest after the party. You can check it out here.
