Tea cups are great. So there. In fact, I prefer them to glasses.
At Julians birthday gathering, he fed us all many many yummy cocktails, served in beautiful martini glasses that he’d bought from Habitat that morning. I like cocktail glasses, but I asked if I could have mine in one of Ally’s pretty tea cups. Everyone looked at me as if I were a bit odd (this is not an unusual look from my friends) but my reasoning behind my choice was proven the same evening when Jules offered me some of his cocktail and spilled it all down my dress.
The next time I had a pretty tea cup in my hands was at the Aussie Mad Hatters Tea Party. I think I disappointed one of the 1000 Heads ladies by mentioning that I’d done the same thing a few months previously, but whereas their choice of tea cups was to fit with a theme, mine was because of practicality. I mean, I’m clumsy at the best of times. Give me a martini glass, and I can’t walk an inch without sloshing half my drink.
Look at this highly technical drawing of why a tea cup beats a martini glass.
Heres a few pretty pretty tea cups that I really should buy, shouldn’t I, yes, yes I should.
(all tea cups are from The Oxford Tea Party, which is a dangerous website if you want pretty tea cups without the faff of going to charity shops! (I’m never that lucky with them!)
