National Tea Day
National Tea Day is celebrated each year on 4/21, which is this coming Saturday. That should give you plenty of time to plan some little observance. Perhaps just you and a friend, as in Henry Salem Hubbell's Ladies Having Tea:
or his Study for the Orange Robe:
Or perhaps you'd like some time alone, as in A Cup of Tea by Lilla Cabot Perry:
or Drinking Tea by Christian von Schneidau:
I'll be having an informal little tea myself, and in the spirit of most of the ladies I see in these paintings, I'll definitely be wearing a hat!
Please join the T party that happens every Tuesday over at Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog.
