A rather large and mysterious package arrived just before Mother’s Day…
Hmmmm, it’s FULL of something…a whole lotta somethings!
Well, Risa chose to make a "Cream Tea" gift basket as her part of the prize package, defined by Tea Embassy as: "In
tea culture of the United Kingdom, a cream tea consists of simply hot
tea, scones, and clotted cream or other condiments for the scones. This
is an informal time for guests of a household to share tea and
conversation with a light snack."
Included in my box of surprises were her yummy Cream Scones mix, her favorite Sweet Cream black tea (one that she serves at her tea parties), Creamy Lemon Curd made by Trader Joes, Clotted Cream, a creamy white teacup & saucer, luncheon plate, tea-for-one teapot, pink linen serviette, pink feather boa (Risa must have a SPICY side!), ParTea note cards and stickers–all in a cute stripe bread basket (could be used for a small tray).
Thank you, too, to A Bit of Pink Heaven for the tea cozy, Calamity Kim for the Blue Willow tea cup and saucer, postcard and crocheted doilie, C. Craft & Collectibles for the tea-themed lace table runner, Norththreads for the Handmade Felt Egg-shaped Sugar Cookies Sweet Repeats for the tin of tea, and to Cathy’s Wraps for the wrapped floral containers.
Risa’s love language must be gift-giving, she’s up to it AGAIN! She’s hosting a gift swap and you have until May 19th to sign up…click the last image, and if I’m not mistaken, it’ll take you to the spot with all the details!
Thanks again to Risa and all the contributors! Your box of goodies was a a delight to receive and certainly made me feel like the Queen Mother :).
