Tea Parties and CrafTea Ideas

Isn’t it interesting what you can find on You Tube?  This video has some lovely ideas for hosting a bridal tea, or any type of afternoon tea party. 

The tiered server put together with matching plates, bowls and teacup is beautiful.  I really like that the teacup is used to hold flowers.  Using Knorr ready to serve spring pea soup in teacups is a real timesaver.  The individual trifles look so yummy and what a great selection of finger sandwiches and savories.   The website for 2 Magazine is here

And now for the crafTea part of this post -  I’d never heard of Bronwyn Hayes embroidery patterns, until I saw an add in Australian Country Threads magazine.  Check out this great magazine here

P6251636My favorite is the roses and ribbons teapot, but all these designs are very pretty.   Wouldn’t they be lovely embroidered on a tea table cloth, tote bag or apron?  The Australian patterns may be hard to find, but Red Brolly blog might be the place to start.
