A friend's birthday ... why not gather others for a simple cup of tea to celebrate? If we don't take the effort to celebrate these life events and spend time together, we get busy and the days slip into weeks and sometimes months before we find time to be together.
So we take advantage of such times.
It doesn't take much work or any special food. Just whatever's in the house.
Setting some pretty dishes out and a candle always helps the ambience.
We had: crackers, cheese, hummus, muffins, fruit and tea.
And that was it. No frills.
Simple and relaxing.
We all felt a bit refreshed and renewed.
Sometimes slowing down comes just from sipping tea with friends.
