When inviting a guest over for “tea,” of course you want everything to be perfect. Pour carefully and try not to spill.
Always serve your guest first so that they know they are getting your full attention.
Don’t be in a hurry now–take your time. Sip slowly and savor the moment.
A little light conversation–perhaps about the weather–will put your guest at ease.
Be sure to offer seconds…or even thirds…if your guest would like a bit more.
Pour yourself another along side them so they feel more comfortable.
If you finish before they do, just be polite and patient, smile…
and go find some cake.

Launi, your posts tickle me! This one is really a day brightener! Thank you.
Ohhhhhhhhhhh, that is so tender. What a sweetheart.
I’m glad she’d learning how to be quite the little hostess! 😉 It’s an important skill to have. 🙂
She LOVES “her” kitty. :}
So, I am sure that with a little bit of searching I would find the answer, but how is this sweet little girl related to you? I love that you blog about her. She reminds me a lot of my middle child. I imagine if we had a cat she would wine and dine him, too. But alas, our dog is much to big and burly for such frivolous activities 🙂
She’s my grandbaby–and the twins that you’ll see occasionally are my other two sweethearts. I’m glad you like reading about them. :}
This is just so precious I can hardly believe it. The cat is just the perfect guest for a tea party. I love it!
Toto loves drinking out of cups! So at our house we are careful not to set a cup on the floor unless we are done because my sweet baby will come drink from it. He would love to come to one of those tea parties.
We used to call that guy the “Dog Slayer” because he–seriously–will take out a Doberman…and has done. But this little gal has really smoothed over his rough spots and he lets her drag him around all over the place. It’s amazing.
Well she would certainly love it….Beany, not so much. hahaha!
