    I know it's still some time away, but I was wondering if we had any details about time and date on this? @Whiskeyinyrshoes wants to come, but she may have to work at some point that day and wants to schedule things.

    Yes please in. I do not have any teacups right now but I've been itching to go raid the shelves at the Kiwanis shop down the street.

    I'm going to figure this out in the next couple of days and let you guys know. I was thinking the 30th since it's a weekend, but it actually looks like more people would be able to make it on the 31st... so we'll see.

    Cockerdoodles are nothing new. You best truly bring it if you hope to step with the large canines.

    I have actually done that before-- a few years ago, we had chocodicks, dickerdoodles, sweet vaginas and sugar titties. I am nothing if not comprehensive in my cookie offering of genitals.

    (ps yes sure)

    Haha... cookie genitals. It's almost as funny as real genitals. Definitely tastier. Usually.

    So, I've read through this thread and I've thought about it some, and it really does seem like it'd be okay (better) if we just had it on December 31st... So, I'm going to be brave and lock that day in. Teatime is technically supposed to be late afternoon (around 3 or 4ish) anyway, so it shouldn't get in the way of any actual New Years Evesing.

    As for what your $20 dollars is going to cover? Here are some ideas:

    -Mimosas (wouldn't be an Icrontea Party without alcohol)
    -Soup
    -Choice of finger sandwiches
    -Scones (with clotted cream and jam)
    -@Troublebaker's awesome macarons (and possibly a special cookie surprise, but shut up about it already)
    -I will be baking my crazy shortbread cookies (tradition for me when ever I throw a tea party)
    -Aaaaaaand random dessert
    -Not to mention

    And if there's anything left over, I'd like to be able to buy extra cups, decorations, and possibly do some kind of crazy Icrontian party favor.

    I realize that this is ambitious for $20 per person (and I know I'll probably be spending a good chunk out of pocket), but I feel like I'm brilliant and can pull this off. All I need is your support and enthusiasm (and your money :hiding: ) to throw the best fucking tea party this world (or at least Detroit) has ever seen.

    IMPORTANT:
    -As for the "in" day: That is still the 18th. JUST 7 DAYS AWAY! Make sure to let me know if you're coming, and if you're bringing anyone with you. Things are going to be made PER PERSON.
    -I'm moving up the "give me your money" day to the 20th, because I realize I'm going to need enough time to start purchasing things, seeing what I need, what I don't have enough for, etc... Also, to give time for the invariable stragglers who will not get their money in on time. Shoot for that day, though, please. :)
    -Send payment through paypal to: Terintales@gmail.com (a couple people already have, so there hasn't been any problem so far)
    -If you don't have (or want) a paypal account, please PM me and we'll figure something out for you.

    And that's all for now, Folks. If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions... please feel free to shoot them to me.

    ... And guys?

    Sorry dear, I'm going to have to back out of this as I will be in Boston with the wife during that time. But, I could still totally help out with shooting some dough your way to make this tea party nothing shy of penishapedcookierific or fursandwichtastic! :)

    I didn't see my name on that list.

    I would also like to point out, while searching for a picture to represent my feeling ("hello"), the first result was this:

    Pardon the crappy photo; still in my pjs this morning.

    In the picture: a three-tiered stand that holds either small square plates or medium square plates (medium on top to show size), three-tiered round stand (those are the only plates that work with that stand), rectangular plate stand and somewhere (haven't really dug into the garage yet) I have a matching stand for the small appetizer plates you see on the floor. The silver balls on top can hold cards to show what is on/in each stand.

    image

    Plate inventory:
    4 cranberry-edged medium squares (10" across)
    2 white medium squares (10" across)
    2 cranberry-edged small squares (7" across)
    4 white small squares (7" across)
    4 cranberry round appetizer plates (6" diameter)
    12 white round appetizer plates (6" diameter)
    1 cranberry-edged rectangle plate (16" length)
    Not pictured:
    12 white petite squares (2.5" across) (think for holding dipping sauces/jams)
    4 cranberry petite squares (2.5" across)

    Today's the last day to let me know if you're coming to this, or if you're bringing a friend to this, or if you're bringing your neighbors, or you're dropping your kids off, or stuff! If you're not on this list, I don't know you're coming. If you are on this list, and are not coming, let me know. Thanks!
