Do you remember?

Do you remember helping your mother or grandma use a mixmaster to mix a cake or cupcakes?

Do you remember setting the table with the sugar bowl and milk jug?

Do you remember the tea measuring scoop that was used to make a pot of tea and the cosy placed on the teapot to keep the tea hot for the second cup?

Do you remember getting out 'the best china' and making the table 'special'?

Perhaps your Aunts arrived wearing hats like these?

I'd love to hear your stories of 'taking tea' when you were young.


  1. Great memories. My mother always brought out the good china for all holidays and special occasions. I had great fun setting the table with flowers in the vase, candles, and everything in it's place.

  2. Yes, we always had the nice china tea cups out for special but we always drank our tea from tea cups anyway.
    Our sugar bowl was silver and a gift which Mum and Dad had from their wedding. Mum also used her silver trays to put out the moring or afternoon tea. On a good cloth of course! Love those days! I try to remember to get out a special cup when friends are over just for a chat and the good stuff for an occasion.
