Icrontea Party: A Tea Party For The Ages

To Whom It May Concern (that's you!),

Are you ready for the best thing that you're going to do this year? Indeed, in ANY year? That's right, my friends. The rumors are true. The fabled IC tea party that's been whispered about around dinner tables, in dark corners, and in your bed at night... is finally happening, and it's happening in a city near you.*

This year at ICNY, I'm taking over a room at ICHQII, and I'm turning it in to a fairytale wasteland of tea and omnomables. Put your pinkies up, Ladies and Gentlemen; shit's about to get real.

All attendees will be asked to throw in $20 to cover food and supply costs, and I'll take care of the rest.

(*Provided you live near Detroit, Michigan.)

Terin

P.S. Also, mimosas.

    ERMEHGERD I need to go shopping for a proper tea party dress. I have one that might work....but if I wore that, I'd have to go with Gothic Lolita tea party dress. STILL FUN.

    Hm. This might get me to come up to ICNY.

    --edit--

    Okay, so I'll preface this question with a disclaimer: I mean absolutely no offense, and I do realize you're the sort to do this right and make it prettyful and awesome. I gotta know, though, will there be proper china, or would I need to bring my own? I'm only asking because numbers, travel with loads of breakables and expense (assuming you don't already have a room dedicated to hundreds of gorgeous tea sets you would bring) could make it difficult.

    :D

    @midga, I have SO much pretty china that it breaks my heart not to bring (since I'll be flying in from California, and bringing my collection would be pretty much impossible), but I'm definitely going to bring a teapot, a sugar bowl, and a creamer. I'll also be bringing a tea strainer and sugar tongs, and other little knick knacks like that.

    Aside from that stuff, Nicole said that she's got some pretty teacups we can use. Depending on how many people come, I'm going to allocate some of the "admission" money to buying extra cups and stuff. There may not be sitting room for everyone, but come hell or high water, EVERYONE shall have a proper teacup.

    Midga, your post scares me a little bit.

    I like tea. I am disappoint that I will not be able to attend, as I will be busy with a new baby by then.
  • WagsFTWWagsFTW Grand Rapids, MI Icrontian
    I might be in for this if I can make it. Sounds like a blast! :) I went to a tea party with a bunch of ladies in the local history profession, and we had a ton of awesome goodies, including cucumber sandwiches and cookies galore, including lavender cookies. If I can come I'll bring some lavender cookies. They are amazing. Let us know which date you plan to do this! :)

    @GnomeQueen - come visit me in GR and we'll go shopping for tea party dresses!

    Not sure I'll be able to pull off a tea party dress at 8 mos. pregnant, but I'll see what I can do.

    Not sure I'll be able to FIND a maternity tea party dress in the middle of winter.

    Oh, I'll try to make this. Limited vacation and the wife working on that thesis may have us staying in state this New year's. We'll see...

    @WagsFTW, It's either going to be on the 30th or the 31st at around 2ish. I really hope you can make it! Also, I LOVE lavender cookies. +1 rep.

    Aaaalso, I want to see pictures of your tea dresses!

    tentatively in...also have a set of teacups if necessary, since we'll likely be driving. They're not nearly as prettily patterned as the ones at ICHQ though.
