Grown-Up Tea Party at Create-a-Cook

in Boston / Massachusetts, Events

I’m sure you’re more than aware of how much I love the classes at Create-a-Cook as I rave about them regularly. Last week when I received their newsletter announcing their latest offerings I squealed in delight (for real…ask my officemate) over the fact that they were hosting a child’s tea party inspired by the upcoming marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

I immediately wanted in, but figured the other 8-year-olds would probably think I was a freak show. However, when you’re as obsessed with all things royal and Kate Middleton in particular you sometimes have to swallow your pride. I’ll confess that I really have crazy princess envy. I mean come on. I  pre-ordered the No More Waity Katie Butter nail polish, flit about the house with my fake Princess Diana engagement ring, and pour over my Kate Middleton Google alert daily.  So after some excited princess themed tweeting surrounding the kid friendly tea party, Jo, the lovely proprietress of this awesome business, has agreed to offer a Grown-Up Sunday Tea Party.

I am so excited! The high tea party will take place on Sunday, April 17th at 2:30 PM. The price of the party will be $60 and we’re scheduled to make:

  • Finger Sandwiches (in the shape of a crown!)
  • Scones and Devonshire Cream, served with jam
  • Shortbread Cookies (heart shaped for love)
  • Banana Flan, which is Prince William’s FAVORITE dessert

You don’t have to dress-up but I’m hoping to find an awesome fascinator or maybe a tiara. By the way, while Create-a-Cook can’t serve us Champagne we are certainly welcome to bring in our own grown-up beverages. There are only 15 slots available so what are you waiting for?! Click here to register. I hope to see you there!

That’s absolutely adorable. I love the idea of this as a themed party even if I wanted to get together with my girlfriends.

You are too funny. I don’t know if I’m teaching the class anymore, but it sounds hysterical.

How fun! You’ve inspired me to have my own tea party the week of the big event.

So tempting! While I doubt I can make the class, I’ve been thinking of ways to celebrate on the big day! How I remember Di and Fergie’s nuptials and later, Di’s memorial service. Sigh.

Oooh, this is so much fun. I’m throwing a tea party in a few weeks with a friend with the theme of “Keep calm and carry on.” We thought we’d need it since March is the LONGEST month for teachers. I’ll have to take some advice pointers from this. Thanks for sharing!

I am in LOVE with the feather fascinators from Feather by Feather on Etsy.

Also? Velveteen…

Ok, so when can I move to Mass??? What a fun party, can’t wait to hear all about it!

You’ll be happy to know that the new email blast that I just spent hours crafting links to you, and pimps out the Grown Up tea party.

Do enjoy.

Oh what fun! I think you have inspired me to make some butter cookies this week to eat while watching the festivities on Friday!
