A one of a kind tea party!

A tea party is a fun way to get together with our girlfriends and enjoy different flavors of tea, delicious food and each others' company. But have you ever hosted a one of a kind tea party where not only you were the gracious hostess, but also the only invitee? Ah yes, I know about that! In fact, I just had one today. When my best friend leaves to Neverland on business trips he leaves behind a huge void. Tinker Bell and the Lost Boys seldom come by any more, and so the house feels terribly quiet and my heart can't find its contentment. So what do I do? Of course, I could always sing “All By Myself” to the tune of “Three Blind Mice” all day long, but instead, I bake one or two cakes, arrange a pretty table and throw a very special tea party for Me Myself and I! I want my guests (which mean me ;) to feel welcome, so I make sure to add thoughtful details to my fĂȘte.
It never fails... sipping a cup of tea is a delightful way to brighten anyone’s day! I don't enjoy being alone for more than 30 minutes, so I'm planning on leaving all my windows open tonight, as I'm sending a beacon of powdered sugar flowing like pollen in the wind to Neverland. Baked sweets, especially cakes have the power to call, you know! Don't believe me? When I was a little girl I could always tell when my mother wanted me home... she baked, and as she took her sweet confections out of the oven I could see the scent floating in the air calling me... All I had to do was follow it home. So I'm hoping the sweet aroma of my cakes would call on Peter Pan and bring him back home soon!
