Last weekend was the #DotheDownton virtual Downton Abbey tea party with World Market. People from all over were participating to win prizes and sign up to enter the latest contest, a trip for two to England to visit Highclere Castle, see the set of Downton Abbey and more!! Thanks to World Market for sponsoring this post.
Most often tea parties in my house consist of my two young daughters dressing up like princesses, many of their princess dolls participate and we use their plastic tea party set. When I told them I wanted to have a tea party with them that day, for the first time in their life they said they weren’t interested. They had coloring to do. Or something. So this became a tea party for me ( and an imaginary friend since it was just my kids and I at home the day of the party). Until our washer and dryer broke. And one furnace. So our tea party turned into having a house full of repairmen fixing appliances. It was a fun day…
To host a Downton Abbey themed tea party ( whether it is for one or a hundred) you need the proper supplies. This special edition Downton Abbey tea from world market is one of the best teas I have had in a long time, so good with the extra hint of vanilla. I love the republic of tea variety of teas.
And to go with tea you need something to nibble on. Biscuits or crumpets or something sweet like Walker’s Shortbread
I love these little sweet, buttery cookies. Seriously perfect with tea. And since my kids didn’t want to have a tea party with me – they didn’ realize I had cookies to go along with the tea. They missed out. Ha ha.
Along with the virtual tea party last weekend, World Market was giving away Downton Abby Totes and coffee cups to randomly selected winners throughout the day.
So if you missed your chance to win one last weekend, I am offering a giveaway today. There will be 5 winners who EACH get 2 coffee cups and 2 tote bags. Use the rafflecopter below to enter the giveaway.
