Birds of a Feather Friendship Tea

My new tea blend for spring, Birds of a Feather, inspired a lovely friendship tea party.

Yesterday sweet friends Cathy and Stacey joined me for a friendship tea. Lovely friendships have blossomed with these two ladies I met through our daughters' preschool. We were long overdue to sit down together, and I was eager to give them a taste of my newest Cup of Loveliness tea blend. (More about that later this week!)

Perched on the tea table, sweet little porcelain birds herald the arrival of spring. A little green bird at each place setting was the perfect tea party favor, reminding girlfriends we're blessed to find birds of a feather.

Our camellias yielded pretty pink blooms for the day, and our bridal bush offered delicate white blossoms.

“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?” – Emilie Barnes, The Twelve Teas of Friendship
