Breakfast Tea Party for One

One morning last week I was feeling sort of down and thought a tea party would cheer me up. It was breakfast time and I wondered if it was OK to have a tea party for breakfast. I decided it was a good idea. In my freezer I found a lemon verbena cookie and a white cupcake. Lemon curd was added to the center of the cupcake. Then frozen bread was cut into heart shapes for the open face sandwiches. The hearts were spread with a mixture of cream cheese and chopped red pepper, cucumber, and smokey green olive. The tea for this instant tea party was a black orthodox Nilgiri tea, a sample picked up from the World Tea Expo. On the packaging it said "Bliss from the Blue". It was bliss, a smooth black tea, which was the perfect tea for a morning tea. So if you are ever feeling down and need a little pick me up consider a breakfast tea party for one. Look in your freezer or cupboard, be creative, and you can also have that special treat for yourself.

I have that same teapot and will think of you everytime I use it. Love the tea party for one. I've never done that for myself but definately will in the future.

We all should treat ourselves this way from time to time. Make it special as you did with the hearts. We do this for others so why not do it for ourselves.
