"A proper tea party" --

A Proper Tea is much nicer than a Very Nearly Tea, 

which is one you forget about afterwards. 

~ A.A. Milne

A hat filled with flowers is very much needed for attending a proper tea! Pearls, scarfs, and lacy gloves.

There are teacups in every floral design.

Plan a proper tea and share a few "tea" books:

-- For young readers:
  • My Very First Tea Party by Michal Sparks (Harvest House, 2000)
  • Fancy Nancy: Tea for Two by Jane O'Connor, illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser (Harper Festival, 2012)
  • Madeline's Tea Party by John Bemelmans Marciano (Penguin Young Readers, 2012)
-- For the Tea Party Planner:
  • Vintage Tea Party by Carolyn Caldicott, photographs by Chris Caldicott (Frances Lincoln, 2012)
  • Traditional Afternoon Tea by Martha Day (Lorenz Books, 2012)
  • Tea Party: 20 Themed Tea Parties with Recipes for Every Occasion, from Fabulous Showers to Intimate Gatherings by Tracy Stern (Clarkson Potter, 2007)
