I am a self proclaimed tea person. I’d take tea over any other hot beverage any day. Specifically Chai tea with milk and honey or plain green tea! I know you probably didn’t care how I like my tea, but it was slightly relevant. Knowing how much I love actual tea and let’s be honest, figurative tea (but that’s none of my business!) – It was a natural desire to want to have a real tea party.
Since I was turning 21 on a Wednesday this year, and I had work bright and early the next morning; I saw the perfect opportunity to have one. I also outgrew the whole clubbing and drinking thing. I wanted to do something different for my birthday.
So I decided on a tea party at MoRoCo Chocolat. A co-worker recommended it, so I looked into it and it was everything I had envisioned. It’s the cutest tea spot/ restaurant in the heart of Toronto. We had the high teas which included mini sandwiches, macaroons, delicious macaroni and cheese, a large pot of tea, and also a glass of Champagne. Everything was delicious… pricey, but worth every penny.
In true Abby fashion – I dressed extra with six inch heels, press on nails and a big floppy hat. After all it was my 21st birthday, why not, right? Even though the rest of my friends didn’t go all out, I stood out like a sparkly sore thumb. OH WELL!
My friends also enjoyed themselves. It was intimate: just what I had hoped for my birthday celebration. They agreed that this outing was a nice change from the usual club scene, which all of them were getting tired of as well. Maybe we’re all getting old, who knows!
All in all, the tea party idea was a good one! Two thumbs up!
The next time around, I want to host my own tea party in my backyard garden at home. Maybe invite a few more people and make it themed (I was thinking Breakfast at Tiffany’s).
