I recently found the delightful blog of ParTea Planner Risa Provencio of Orange County, Calif. Her work has been featured in Romantic Homes magazine, and most recently she was featured in the March/April issue of TeaTime Magazine. Her event photos are truly inspiring!
Risa has invited bloggers to celebrate the first day of spring with a virtual tea party on March 20, 2008. She suggests sharing tea with family or friends on that day, then posting party pictures on our blogs. Leave a comment on The Partea Planner's blog, and the day after the tea party she will compose a link list of participating blogs. What a wonderful excuse to have a tea party!
I think this will be a great opportunity to share a virtual cup of tea with all my new found blogging buddies. In her book The Twelve Teas of Friendship, Emilie Barnes wrote, "Through the seasons, through the years, it's your friends who carry you through. What would you do without them -- these chosen sisters who laugh with you, cry with you, and speak truth to you? And what better way to celebrate the warmth and intimacy of beautiful friendship than with the warmest and most intimate of celebrations -- a tea." Spring is on the way; let's celebrate together!
