Lauren came into the little brown house a couple of weeks ago with her Granny and her mum, Liz, and showed us how tea parties are really done. (we are never going to assume we know already because lovely people keep coming in and giving us fabulous ideas!)
as Lauren showed us, the essentials are really quite simple: a pretty dress (preferably a hooped or similarly twirly one), some bright jewellery, pearls in your hair, good company (this is imperative), and a card game (for example, uno).
once you’ve got all these boxes checked, you can sit yourself down with some hot chocolate and a slice of chocolate cake and while away the afternoon chatting and playing. perfect!
