There is something so sweet and nostalgic about a tea party. Although the tradition of tea parties date back thousands of years, the kind that we have come to recognize got it’s start around the mid 1800’s thanks to Anna Marie Russell, Duchess of Bedford. She decided that bold tea, light refreshments, and company was […]
