I went to a cute and fun baby shower Saturday. The organizer, Nathalie designed a tea party event because the mom-to-be is a tea connoisseur. Everyone participated by bringing food. She split the food into the salty table and the sweet table. It was beautifully done. The baby shower was a success.
Nat stocked her tea station very well. She displayed everything so we can quickly and easily serve several teas at a time. She put 5 teapots on the table, filled her retro thermos with hot water and had an assortment of teas. She put more tea leaves on her side buffet.
Her sweet buffet table looked festive. The cheerful look came from the colorful tableware and tins. Silk flowers complete her setting. Each time I go to Nat’s place, I envy her rustic table island on her kitchen; it is so gorgeous.
An inexpensive single-blade hand mandolin slicer was used to evenly cut the cucumber slices for the tea sandwiches. Hers cut really thin slices. Mine does not. I own the V-slicer by Zyliss. It works fabulously well but there are times where I wish to get a smaller one.
If you have a baby shower coming soon, I recommend the tea party formula.
