Who says you a tea party cannot be just you and a special someone?

Instead of heading out to the cafes and restaurants where there is no privacy and waiters will be coming over often to take another order or sending you the bill, the very restaurant way of asking you to leave.

Set a table for two using your best place mats, tea pot and cuts, place a flower or two as the centerpiece and use little plates to display an assortment of tea party foods so that you and your friend will have a ball selecting which one to eat next.

Play some jazz music in the background, open the windows wide, and enjoy the afternoon tea for two!
