A Conversation About Tea--Part 6

The clothing

Increasingly, our society is becoming casual—in appearance, attitudes, and thinking. Casual is not a bad thing. I love to wear jeans as much as the next person. But, there needs to be balance. Without the casual, elegance is not special; without elegance the world becomes mundane. Having a tea and dressing up for the occasion gives us a chance to experience life in a different frame of mind. Wear a skirt with a lace camisole and a lightweight jacket. A lacy underdress can be worn under a jumper or with a skirt. Put on heels instead of tennis shoes. Wear make-up. Take time to style your hair. Put on perfume and a bracelet. Wear a hat. Be feminine. Feel the elegance transform your mood and attitude!

As a hostess, you can make your guests feel pampered by wearing a tea apron while serving.

In this fast paced world we live in, taking time to smell the roses or spending time with loved ones over a cup of tea is a respite that refreshes. My hope is that I can inspire you do just that!
