This is a fun party to throw for your friends that are into needlework. Make your invitations with fun old time graphics. Inside your invitation, include instructions for an easy quick square that everyone can make and ask that they make two. These you will make into a afghan for a small needy child or baby. Get out all of your pattern books and ask your friends to bring their newest patterns to share. Free patterns can be found on the internet and printed out cheaply.
If you don't have enough teacups, they can be bought at yard sales or thrift stores or you can just ask that each lady bring her own favorite cup from home. In the room that you want to have your tea party in, have plenty of comfy chairs and sofas for your friends to lounge on. Set out your pattern books. You will want to have some background music, something like classical music with nature sounds or some soothing music. Decorate the room with small tussy mussie's at each place setting. By the side of each place, set out a small pad for taking notes or copying directions.
That's a fun idea! Wish I lived near enough to partake (live in FL). There are a bunch of patterns for tea cozies (I've made one); one you make and put on your teapot would be a conversation-starter for your group. The pattern(s) could be included in the others at the tea party.
I really wished I lived closer...I am in Indiana,,,this sounds like such a fun afternoon for friends..sadly none of mine are into crafts like this....thanks so much for sharing your ideas with all of us...deb
