“The time has come, my little friends, to talk of other things / Of shoes and ships and sealing wax, of cabbages and kings / And why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wigs / Calloo, Callay, come run away / With the cabbages and kings – Walrus”
Since it might probably be the end of the world any second, a group of friends decided it was an apt time for some one-of-a-kind celebration. What better way to celebrate our quirkiness and eccentricities than a no-theme themed tea party?
And so on a bright sunny Saturday afternoon, odd close-knit friends gathered for an intimate and ladylike (at least attempted to be) merriment on a small patch of grass under tents and umbrellas.
The theme for the day was there was no theme. It was a mishmash of everything quirky, odd, and definitive of what we love, enjoy, and take pleasure in. The curiouser it was, the better. There were different teas, a variety of small snacks and sweets, books, toys, chairs, stools, literature, quotes, candies, flowers, hats, trinkets, music, small and big animals everywhere. You would find stripes, polka dots, ribbons, plaid, and lace. It was a beautiful exquisite mess.
In spite of the furnishings, the most essential element of a celebration is the people – the laughs, the silly and thoughtful conversations, the stories so don’t forget that one!
Every memory should be a milestone so we challenge you planeteers to come up with your own personal celebration that defines what you and your friends are passionate about or fascinate over. Make it count.
PS: BUT if you wanna try this idea out and celebrate your muddled mishmash-ness, then we’ll take you on a crash course in tea partying just because we did it once and we enjoyed ourselves too much it’s made to be shared. See our CRASH COURSE ON TEA PARTYING.
