Me and My mom did our second annual Teen Tea this afternoon and it was a blast! 9-14 year-olds came to eat tea party food that was specially prepared by my mom and do a super fun craft. Also to bond over a delicious cup – or two – of warm tea. My mom gave a speech about the history of tea and how it came to be. Not only did we learn but we relaxed and had a great time!
Fine Fan Directions: All you need is an 11 x 5 inch sheet of scrapbook paper, 14 inch piece of shiny ribbon, a hole punch and a stapler.
- Take the paper and flip it over to it’s white side. Fold it accordion style the short ways.
- Bunch it back up then cut the top at a diagonal.
- Keeping it bunched up, take half of the layers and punch a hole about an inch from the bottom. Bunch it back up and trace the hole you just punched so that you know exactly where to punch the other half of the papers. Once you have finished that stupendous step thread the ribbon through the punched holes then spread the fan out and tie nots on each end. Make the knots loose so that they don’t slip through your beautiful holes that you made. Curl the end of the ribbons to give it a fancy flare and staple the bottom together. Whola! You have a Fine, Fine, fan!
Is that Raspberry Cordial you see! Of course! Anne Shirley WOULD be proud! (It’s raspberry lemonade, but you’re never too old to use your imagination right?) Macaroons sit royally beside this pitcher of Cordial ready to be delicately eaten.
Thanks for reading this post about our Teen Tea! I hope this inspired you to have your own, public or with just a couple friends. Enjoy the rest of the week!
