Kim at The Victorian Parlor is hosting a Tea in honor of Her Majesty Queen Victoria today! Make sure you visit her blog to see what she is serving, and to see what others will be doing with their teas.
Queen Victoria's birthday is May 24th. Today, I am having the Queen over for morning tea. Come join us!
I've set the table with my most regal tablecloth. Today, Her Majesty will be served on a variety of Aesthetic Transferware pieces, all with English registry marks, of course.
We are serving warm crumpets with butter and jam. Her Majesty will be offered a selection of Tetley and Twinings teas. May I suggest English Breakfast tea?
Our table centerpiece is a classical sculpture with a truly royal look. I think she looks a bit like Her Majesty herself, don't you agree?
Finally, in honor of Queen Victoria, we will make an extra contribution to our favorite charity this year. We have a particular fondness for the Anti Cruelty Society of Chicago, a wonderful animal shelter where we have always gone to adopt our kitties. I think Her Majesty would approve!
Thank you, Kim, for hosting your tea and inviting us! Remember to rejoin your hostess at The Victorian Parlor today.
