Molly has always had a thing for tea parties--check out this post to see her
and her friends on our back porch!
And I love the idea of tea--the cups, the pots, the brewing, the endless variety of fragrant tea leaves
with the different herbs and flowers that can be mixed in.
It's fun to prepare for a tea party--the silver, the linens, the FOOD!
(I just pretend all that doesn't have to be washed by hand later.)
So when Josh proposed to Molly and she began to plan her wedding day,
the one thing she was adamant about was the fact that she really, really
wanted to use tea cups and saucers for the reception.
She even offered to delay her honeymoon
to help wash up afterwards.
But I don't think she meant it!
So I've been looking (along with friends and family) for affordable (read here, extremely cheap)
cups and saucers for the special day. I've spent alot of time hunting, washing,
wrapping, storing and obsessively counting these pretty pieces of china.
How many do we have? About 289 sets.
More or less.......
