Tea and Macarons



For my birthday this year, I had a little tea party.
I’ve always wanted one of those ever since I was a little girl reading about tea parties in fairy tales, although I’m not very big on tea, but that has never deterred me before.

I love really low-key birthdays, my best birthdays have always been the quiet ones; it probably has something to do to with my disastrous tenth birthday ‘party’… but that’s a story for another day.

Mine was a small tea party; tea and macarons for one or two or three…

For a great tea party for one or for fifteen people, you’d need good tea; we had mango tea; black tea with mango pieces and tart fruity spices. Lovely and luscious, it smelled divine … If I wrote tea descriptions for the tea company I’d say it’s fragrant and heady, like being in love on a tropical island.

The fine tea set was brought out, and a platter filled with macarons with delicate flavours like rose, pistachio, lavender and vanilla, and ginger spiced cookies for balance.

Everything tastes better when fancied up, and birthdays are best when spent with loved ones.
I hope this is the beginning of many beautiful themed birthday ‘parties’

    Your kids sound adorable, I’d love to have them over for a tea party, the more the merrier – any plans to visit Vancouver? 🙂 What an awesome mom you must be, bringing them macarons from Paris.
