This week I’m featuring a tea party that I helped a dear, dear friend with. This was actually my “first” party. Or maybe you could call it a pre-party. I think I’ve progressed a lot since then and I’m so grateful to this friend for letting me practice on her. Thanks Brook!

She had the darling idea to use mismatched tea cups and saucers from the thrift store and then to send them home with the guests as a gift. She let her daughter pick out the dishes.

  1. i’m so grateful that you posted this today! i have this exact question on my blog, because i’m doing a tea party for my daughter’s 6th birthday next month. i was originally buying cups & saucers at marshalls, ross, etc., but i need lots more and they just don’t have ‘em, so i’ve been hitting goodwill. so i was wondering if it was okay to send home second hand tea cups as a gift. glad to know that someone else has done it! i won’t worry so much about it…
