Teas and Treats for a Cozy Afternoon
Why not turn a rainy Saturday afternoon or quiet Wednesday evening into a family-focused teatime? Grab your best china or favourite mugs, pop some treats on pretty plates, and get the fam together for an hour of technology-free togetherness (that definitely must include continually asking one another if they want one lump or two)! Put those pinkies up, grab your go-to tea, and get ready for some good old fashioned quali-tea family time!
