    Oooooh! Those lemon scrolls look so perfect with your yellow teacup.

    Who would I invite to a tea party at my place? Hmmmmโ€ฆ well I would definitely invite you because I think we’d have a hoot (a fancy tea time hoot!) together, Tina Fey (to keep the hoot going and because I adore her), my Twitter friend Zohar, in Israel, because we always talk about having tea together, andโ€ฆ Daniel Craig. A lady needs something to look at! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Dawn French – she’s warm, funny and boxed set of Vicar of Dibley got me through a hard time. I’d like to make her a cup of tea to say thank you.
    Eden from Edenland – her writing is so powerful I’d love to hear what she says in person.
    The Queen – she’s seen so much change from such a unique perspective and has known all the power players. I’d love to hear her perspective on social change and what she thinks is important in life.

    My sister – I don’t get to see her anywhere as much as I’d like and she’s awesome.

    What a super cute tea set!
    To my little tea party I’d invite my lovely friend Lyd who lives on the other side of the country & I miss her too much.
    I’d invite my friend taryn cause she would wear a pretty frock & her & Lyd have never met & I think they’d like each other.
    Lastly I’d invite my 10 year old son Isaac because he loves tea more than anyone I know & I think he’d be sad to miss out on an actual tea party. Plus he’d drink more tea & eat less sweets leaving more for me!!

    My four soul sisters, Sam, my oldest friend, who has known me for for then half my life, Sharon, who is always there physically when I need her, no matter what, Karen, who keeps it real, and Anna, who has a heart bigger then a mountain. … These four women keep me going.

    That tea set is divine!

    A tea party requires a touch of class and a lot of laughs – so my tea party would comprise of me, Princess Catherine – for class and style advice, Robin Williams – for the belly laughs, Joanna Lumley – for some fab laughs and lastly Daniel Craig – classy accent and a bit of eye candy ๐Ÿ™‚

    I would invite my Grandmother (who is bound to bring food anyway), who I haven’t seen in years but is my super duper role model, and as many poverty-stricken kids as I can possibly fit into my suitcase, boot, arms, backpack etc. who have never tasted tasty baked goods before…

    Now..I would invite Russell Brand (for a good old ribald laugh or two..not to mention the eye candy..LOL) Garth Brooks to serenade us all …not to mention the eye candy. Curtis Stone to whip us up a few more yummy treats and not to mention yet more eye candy and then I guess I had better have my gorgeous husband along as well to keep me in line and to add even more eye candy to the whole event..Bwhahahah! Sounds like a really yummy day to me all round really ๐Ÿ™‚

    What lemony goodness! And that tea set- be still my beating heart! If the guests don’t have to be living I would invite my Pop (who passed away when I was 3)- I have been told many hilarious stories of him and his drinking antics (and he did love his cuppa’s); my two year old son who loves finishing off the last 2 mouthfuls of my chamomile tea in his very own mug (complete wiht pinky finger extended!) and to entertain my son so I can sip tea in peace I would invite Peter Combe (the wonderful kids singer from the 80’s & 90’s of ‘Newspaper Mama’ fame) and last of all Bryce Courtenay- my favourite author.

    November 21, 2012 at 12:29 pm

    I’d invite David Attenborough because he must be such an interesting man and I’d love to listen to him talk about some of his adventures, Stephen Fry because he’s smart, funny and slightly inappropriate, Sarah Millican who is just hysterical & Channing Tatum (just to look at, I don’t want him to speak) because with all that brain food I’d better feed my eyes as well.

    Oh and how yummy are those lemon swirls? Love them.

    Hi! I would invite my dermatolgist who performed surgery on me for cancer. I would invite you! Veggie Mama! Love your work & love your blog :). Radio DJ Fenella Kernebone would play chill out tunes at this party :D. Kick-arse asian actress, Michelle Yeoh would also be on my guest list. Thank you very much. Have a great day. You are cool. Lots of love, Angela Hoh. xox We would all enjoy a lovely cup of Green Tea together. If it’s hot then a cool glass of iced green tea would go down a treat. Good Luck for the year of the Dragon.

    Do they have to be alive or can they be reanimated for the event? I’m going to go with the reanimated option because I think that might be a little more varied – although I do worry that we’d probably spend most of the tea party talking about how they came to be reanimated and what’s changed with the world and what an iPhone is… but still…

    Jane Austen – I’d have to ask her if Colin Firth is what/who she was thinking of when she wrote the character of Mr Darcy. Also I’d want to show her the pond scene (over and over again… the tea party might get a little derailed at this point…)

    Oscar Wilde – I’d love to see if he’s as funny in person as he is in his writings and legend. (He may also appreciate seeing the pond scene…)

    Stephen Fry – Think it might be interesting to see the reaction he has to coming in contact with Oscar Wilde. Also might make the more intellectual of the party feel like they’ve got someone to talk to while I’m watching the pond scene… (although he might also enjoy said pond scene…) Also he might be able to explain the iPhone better than I would.

    Colin Firth – I’d accidentally spill some (cold) tea on him to see if the pond scene is as good in person as it is on the telly.

    I too am partial to a British comedian, and rather than choosing between Jimmy Carr and Ricky Gervais – I’d just have them both.
    Third guest is Mark Wahlberg. If he isn’t overly witty or able to hold a conversation, I’d ask him to hush and take his shirt off.
    Lastly, I’d ask you. Because you would have to bring the baby and I would like to smoosh her please.

    November 22, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    Paul McCartney- an inspiration as a vegetarian, plus I love his music, so after tea maybe he could play us a tune ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Barack Obama- Some one with so much charisma is bound to unite the guests in witty conversation, even if he cann’t unite the democrats and republicans on what to do about the debt crisis
    Claire Dane- Absolutely love her in Homeland plus she comes across as so intelligent I would love to see what she adds to the conversation
    Finally my husband, because lets face it, if I had all this awesome people over and locked him out he would be pretty upset, not to mention how upset he would be about missing out on all the awesome food. Plus it would be an added bonus to rehash the awesome time we would have with such amazing guests for years to come.

    Felicia Day because I adore her work and would love to talk geek things with her.

    Veronica Belmont because she has awesome taste in books.

    And my two daughters so they can get to know two awesome women who have been successful and love the same geeky things my girls do.

    Johnny Depp, Matthew McConaughey, Ryan Gosling and Chris Hemsworth. The tea party of all tea parties, where my eyes get an incredible work out to say the least ๐Ÿ˜‰

    First is my DAUGHTER – bringing her home from the UK.
    Add TIM MINCHIN for humour and some music to play.
    BARAK OBAMA for insight and inspiring conversation…
    And the outspoken CATHERINE DEVENEY! There’s interesting oration!

    I would have to invite your tea set, they are just delightful.

    I think you said we had to invite people so I’d have another tea party and invite the stars of Red Dwarf:

    The Cat along with his wardrobe so he could change every five minutes and give me another set of clothes to ogle over.

    Dave Lister so I could give him something that doesn’t have curry. I might have to hand him the makings of a curry and see what happens.

    Kryten so he could do my washing and ironing while we talk

    Holly/Hill so I could watch that deadpan face as they crack many jokes.

    As there’s only four invitees allowed I’d have to leave Arnold Rimmer off the list which is such a pity (not) but it’d be awesome to have the actor who plays him, Chris Barrie, pity I’m only allowed four. Actually, Kryten’s not technically a person as he’s a mechanoid so I’d definitely invite Chris Barrie and watch him do impersonations. And another actually, Holly/Hilly are computers so not technically people and as The Cat is a cat and not technically a person I think I could invite someone else as well so I’d have to go all out and invite Gerald Durrell, I’ve recently seen pictures of him as a young man and he’s so dreamy I’d love to meet him and be swept off my feet.

    I would invite Nikki Parkinson from Stylingyou,Mrs Woog from Woogsworld and Eden Riley from Edenland as I would love to meet them,throw Chrissie Swan into the mix and Jackie O and I think Fitzy from Fitzy and whipper and I would have an awesome funny ,stylish and very cool tea party,Fitzy could sing us a tune and there could be a debate from Eden,Mrs Woog and Chrissy and Nikki could clean out my wardrobe while she is here.That would be a great tea Party i think.

    I’d go with Freddie Mercury – a legend in his time and I have grown up listening to Queen since I was in my mother’s tummy ๐Ÿ™‚
    Heston Blumenthal – he could bring along some dainty sandwiches and hopefully a surprise treat or two (hopefully not the meat fruit!!:)
    Candace Nelson – she is the founder of Sprinkles Cupcakes and I had the pleasure of trying her s’more cupcake in NYC and it was the best cupcake I have ever consumed in my 26 years of living!
    I also bring my mum as due to the distance we live apart I do not get to see her as much as I’d like and I think she deserves a special tea party ๐Ÿ™‚

  34. says

    November 28, 2012 at 9:02 am

    David Attenborough (for his fascinating stories and conversation), Stephen Fry (for his wit) and Graham Norton (because he is hilarious, and he is a very distant relation (I think 4th cousin – our grandmothers were first cousins so whatever that is!) so that would be pretty fun!)

  35. says

    November 28, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    Hey Veggie mama, I am about to graduate (huzzah!). I have had some really awesome lecturers throughout my degree. I would have to say that I would invite my two favourite lecturers around for some book talk. Plus a few fabulous authors. Perhaps M. J. Hyland and Jeffrey Eugenides would do the trick? Although it would be hard to narrow the author selection down! Wanna come too? I love your new tea set. It’s just what you needed. x

  36. melanie w says

    I would love to share tea with John Lennon (the man who made me fall in love with music), with my nephew (who never made it to this earth, passing at 36 weeks), My Step Dad (who passed away 4 years ago) and with Jimmy Hendrix (the man who sparked my love affair with music even further).
