Hello, ladies! Today I intend to start a new series of (virtual) "Tea Parties" where we can have different topics to discuss. So, I invite you to a cup of tea :) I will like to have this kind of posts from time to time and also I will like to answer to your questions (if you have any).
If you followed me on Instagram or Facebook you know already that I am a tea lover, so here are some shots of one of these January cold mornings, when, while baby Noah was napping, I prepared a teapot of Teavana Purify tea (let me tell you, my whole kitchen was smelling incredible). I was listening to Kristina Train and thinking of all the NEW things that I want to do in 2016. Everybody else call them RESOLUTIONS.
Since we are on the second week of this new year, I'm thinking what a better subject can we have than our New Year resolutions.
This year I will like to try something different. And to simplify everything, I choose these wise words of Neil Gaiman. Is something that I wish for me and you.

"  "I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something.
So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”
― Neil Gaiman

    I love this idea! You have inspired me to get a proper tea set. I too love tea and right now I am obsessing over mint tea. I must admit that I love to put cream & sugar in my tea, which I think most people take their’s plain or with a bit of honey. I don’t really make resolutions for the new year, I am the kind of lady if I want to try something new I just go for it. Also, do you buy your pastries or make them?

    • Enjoy your tea with cream Melissa, I have to try this version too. Also these mini cake are from Trader Joe’s :)

    Veronica, I used to have tea parties when my kids they were growing up. I had a cute kid’s set and we used real tea and sugar cubes. We had cheeses and little pastries, etc. As they got older they got to pick out a china teacup for our parties. My kids loved these little parties. I have several tea pots and cups I have collected since I was a teenager. I love your set. Doesn’t it make the tea taste even better when you use beautiful pots and cups? It makes me feel pampered.

    • I’m a collector of vintage teacups and teapots Pat. I wish I have friends here to have these “Tea Parties” on a regular basis. I hope Noah will join me soon :)

        If only you lived closer you could invite me over for tea.

        • I know Pat, I was thinking to that too :)

    Veronica, I am a big tea drinker and have been following along for a little while now – love this idea! I have a bit of a technical question, I hope you don’t mind me asking! I’m wondering what your favorite VSCO filters are? Your photos are always gorgeous! One of my “resolutions” this year is to focus on editing my photos more, which I never really took the time to do!

    • Thank you Alyssa! I love VSCO and there are so many great filters but lately I concluded that I love the most A5/ANALOG and Q1/ALCHEMY. I must say that on each filter I still adjust the light and temperature and in the end is always a mix. I’m sure that you will find what represent you the best. Let me know if I can help with answering to your questions.

        Thank you Veronica, this is so helpful – I will have fun experimenting until I find the right one. Wishing you a great weekend and looking forward to your next tea time post!
