When I travel I rarely buy souvenirs and instead usually spend most of my money on the destination itself, and the experiences while there. Unfortunately, I rarely find I have the luggage space or extra cash to buy any goodies.
But 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.
As a farewell to San Diego, I decided to throw a little Turkish tea party for my friends. And I put together a little “how to” so you can do it, too!
What You’ll Need
Turkish Tea Set – or tea set equivalent
Apple Tea – any tea will do, but apple tea is super popular in Turkey
Festive plates and bowls
Festive Scarf or table runner
Flowers & greenery
A friend has the cutest little balcony with the most amazing San Diego view. It was the perfect location to set up shop for the tea party.
How to Decorate
We didn’t want everything to look too orderly, 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. 🙂
