Virtual Tea Party

This is a picture of a tea cup from my collection sitting on a vintage doily.

I noticed that many of my fellow quilting bloggers also like tea and tea parties. I began blogging a year ago this month so to celebrate, I am hosting a virtual tea party.


Here is how it will work:
My friend, Pat, will be joining me at my home on Friday, January 30 at 2:00 PM for tea.

We, of course, will talk quilting.

We are inviting you to also have a cup of tea with us. You can do this alone or with some quilting friends. (Since time may be a factor, you can have your tea any time between 12 AM on January 30 and 11:59 PM on January 31.)

Take a picture of your tea...cups, goodies, guests, etc....post the picture on your blog if possible.
Comment to my January 30 blog to share your experience.
As a party favor, on February 1st I will randomly choose a guest from those who comment to receive a special little gift.

I am the guest at her tea party and it will be FUN, I'm sure!!! I hope others will join us and have their own tea parties during that time period!

I wish I could be there in person, but a virtual tea party will be almost as fun!

Hi Kathy, I just got my blog up and running and am so excited about being able to make some new quilting friends. I Love reading them and seeing the beautiful quilts and other items. You are all a real inspiration. Your tea party idea sounds like a perfect way to celebrate your one year blog. Happy Quilting and enjoy the tea! ps-Pat sent me. Kaye

How cool. However, I'm a southern girl here and only drink sweet tea. Does that count? lol

Pat sent me over and I think this is such a great way to celebrate your blog anniversary. I am sure it will take over the blogs soon.

What a great idea, I love it! You and Pat (who sent me over) are going to have a wonderful time on Friday.

Cheers, QGB

This is a great idea. My best "tea friend" lives 5,000 km away so maybe I can get her to have tea and snap a picture too!

Sandi said...

I think I can "be there". Looks like 2:00 on Friday is free so I will plan to be there for tea! Sorry, I have this thing about rhyming. :-)
