Invitation to a tea-party

Dear Esteemed Bloggiste,

You are most cordially invited to a Spring Tea-Party on Friday 1st March. (Apologies for the short notice- please ask your secretary to check your social engagements for that day?) Please wear your cheerfullest frock and come for dainty, smileful delicacies.

Let's ring a joyous trill of bright, happy celebration throughout the Land of Blog, for the Willows Boys are safely returned home to Pom Pom. Though actually, a spot of bright, happy celebration is just what we need here in the Frozen North- any excuse for a party!

To attend our International Bun-Fight, please be so good as to:
  1. Blog on Friday and link either to us here at fraise or to Pom Pom,
  2. Show us photos of your tea tray and of your frock!
  3. (optional) Invite someone who will be most delighted with cheerful, child-like joy. I am expecting the few months old Hannah and her lovely Mummy, Ruth.
  4. Sign up for our tea-party in a comment below, or chez Pom. We shall aim to have a list of tea parties on our sidebars so that you can have as much virtual tea and cake as possible!
Do come! The Wind in the Willows' Grand Tour of the Whole World is complete. Adventures have been enjoyed, hospitality has been poured out, smiles have been smiled in abundance- it's time for tea!

Yours most faithfully,

Mags x

Hooray! A frock? I'll have to work on that!

I have Friday off (a comp day for parent/teacher conference marathon) so I can tea party it up all day long!

Cake! Must plan!
Love you, Mags!

Friday is of course the Women's World Day of Prayer and I shall be exceedingly busy. But I promise to rustle up something!!

Kezzie said...

Sounds fabulous!!! I'd love to join in but I'll be late as I have a gamelan rehearsal in London!xx

Tea party sounds delightful but not sure about the frock...it's stinkin' cold here and a frock sounds like an invitation to frost bite! -grin- I might wear woolies instead.

Will there be room for me to 'park' my snow shoes?

Oh yes, frock eagerly anticipating another outing (and within a month of the previous one), although it may have to be up here in Dalewood as I'm out fri morning.

Pom Pom said...

"Frock" can mean a lot of things, right? You could find a photo of a frock you might wear. You could draw a dress!

Gumbo Lily said...

Oh boy, a tea party sounds just wonderful right about now. Maybe I'll invite the grandlittles over!

I'm doing the 5:2 regime and Friday is my fast day...so no delicious cakes for me...but I'll join you for a low calorie cup-a-soup in between phone lessons!

The dB family said...

Oh Dear Mags! Peanut and I will be sure to attend. Maybe even more if we have yet another snow day. I wish now I had time to make some more tea time treats. Oh well, we definitely won't run out of tea.

I've chosen my frock, my tea service and my cakes. We're having tea over at dormouse.wibsite.com
