QuickieChick Laurel House having Cream TeaDon't just watch the Olympics. Celebrate it! Obviously the games are the main event, but don't forget about the other fabulous components that go particularly well this time around: Parties and Dressing the Part! I'm talking about Cream Tea, Healthy Finger Sandwiches, Pimms, and Fascinators. Fabulous!
"Cream Tea" (also incorrectly known as "High Tea") is the perfect way to celebrate the Olympic Games in high style without braving the crowds in London. All you need is a few food, décor, and drink essentials and you will feel like a great Brit! Or at least a highfalutin "yank."
Rings of Flowers: Make a floral arrangement in the shape of the Olympic rings using 5 small vases or simply 5 water glasses- 3 at the top and 2 below, then fill each cup with blue, black (or something very dark) and red flowers on the top, and yellow and green flowers on the bottom- the stems cut short so it's just a puff of color.
A Fascinator: You might remember them from the Royal Wedding. They are absolutely fabulous and a total must!
