Afternoon Tea doesn’t always mean all things Victorian. Many people think they don’t like tea because it’s only for Red Hat Societies and women who like to wear hats and gloves. This is not true! Afternoon Tea means taking time for quiet beauty with the refreshment of the tea beverage and can be defined by what is beautiful to the eye of the beholder.

Karen Hattaway has done a terrific job defining her ideal of afternoon tea beauty through her business Sweet Necessi-teas and offering it to others. Today she shares her hatbox gift baskets that I personally find charming. Be sure to check them out, especially if you’re still thinking of a Mother’s Day gift!
