Tea for Every Generation

 This is Madison.  Isn't she sweet?  I think she's going to grow up loving tea, what do you think?  She and her parents attend my church.

This is Madison's mom, Kim [standing], and her grandma, Tina.  They like tea too!  Kim said she acquired her love of tea from her mother and grandmother.   Don't you love the way tea is multi-generational?

The above photo was taken at our 2009 Christmas Tea at church.  For three years Kim was  one of my  table hostess volunteers - which means she had to come up with a theme and coordinating tablescape, and fill her table with eight guests. 

Theme: "Winter Wonderland."

Kim's table at our 2010 Christmas Tea.    Her theme was "Visions of Sugarplums."  She was a real trouper volunteering for a table in 2010.   She was pregnant with Madison and wasn't feeling too perky.

Kim setting up her 2008 table the night before the tea.  She wasn't married yet, but she wanted to hostess a table.   I love her spirit!

Kim's table.  By tea time the next day all the boxes and totes in the foreground were packed away and out of sight. 

Theme:  "Starry Night."

Based on Kim's creativity and love of tea, I predict there will be lots of tea parties in Madison's future!



  1. Madison is adorable! I'm intrigued by what you've written about retiring and pursuing all things tea. I am going to follow your blog to find out all about your tea journey!
    Blessings, Beth

  2. Yes indeed, Madison no doubt has some very special tea parties in her future!
