I love getting creative and I also love having afternoon tea with friends, so I figured it would be fun to combine the two and host a Crafternoon Tea! Last week, a few of my friends came over and we had a lovely afternoon of chatting, eating and colouring in.
I printed off some fun colouring pages from this website, though most of my friends ended up picking this design. My friend Emma and I had our own adult colouring books that we hadn’t used yet, so that’s what we worked on.
I made a batch of classic chocolate chip cookies, and made sure there were plenty of sweet and salty snacks available. I also made a pot of my favourite TWG ‘Happy Birthday’ tea, and filled a pitcher with ice-cold water, strawberry slices, frozen raspberries and mint.
There’s something very calming and peaceful about colouring in, and it was especially nice to do it while catching up with my friends!
Here’s my finished product – I’m actually quite proud of it!
So all in all, my first Crafternoon Tea was a rousing success! I’m planning to host a Crafternoon Tea every few months, each time featuring a different creative project. I’m already gathering ideas for the next one!
