Set Your Table With Flair--Sweet Afternoon Tea
Who doesn't love the idea of a private reverie, book in hand, feet propped? I deeply enjoy a lazy, quiet afternoon; a relaxing half-hour spent engrossed in the pages of my choice. While I do this, I love to have a small snack. Tea with cookies is one of my favorite things to nibble on. I have such an affinity for tea that oftentimes, I don't drink anything else. This post is how I would set a sweet tea-for-one. This also could be an adorable idea if you wanted to serve someone in bed.
First, choose a tray to your liking.
When serving tea, you really can't go wrong with sweet, delicate doilies, which I placed next.
A color scheme is really not required; just as long as the colors meld well. Place a favorite teacup and saucer. Nothing compares to fine English bone china! Next, cookies and flowers....all set!
A closer look.
