How to Throw the Perfect Turkish Tea Party

How to Throw the Perfect Turkish Tea Party

As a final farewell to San Diego, I decided to throw a Turkish tea party for my friends. I absolutely loved Turkey, and unfortunately rarely have an opportunity to use my Turkish tea set. When I went to Turkey, I spent hours upon hours walking through the Grand Bazaar, and it took everything I had not to buy everything in sight. When I finally decided to make a purchase, I decided to splurged on a beautiful Turkish tea set. It’s been 5 years since I bought my tea set, and I still treasure it like I bought it yesterday.

 

 I loved this “Turkish Tea Party” idea so much I decided to put together a “how to tutorial” so you can do it, too!

Location

A friend had the cutest balcony with a gorgeous view of San Diego. It was the perfect location to set up shop for the tea party.

How to Decorate

I didn’t want the decorations to look too perfect, but instead went for a more natural and casual feel. As you can see the table cloth isn’t perfectly arranged, and we loosely sprinkled flower petals and greenery around the table.

After you’ve arranged it to your liking, sit back and enjoy! I myself couldn’t help but have one too many baklava. 🙂

    The baklava looks so good! Also-the tablecloth would have really annoyed me not being smooth-but I have to admit it looks totally Turkish this way!

Every time I read this verse I fall in love with it all over again. 😍 How crazy is it that when everything around us is shaky, God is stable. He is the one we can rely on. His love for us remains, no matter what. 💖 As I look at these gorgeous mountains, I'm reminded of His love and faithfulness to us. 💕❄️
