One of my favorite little luxuries in life is to indulge in a traditional tea time. Every year, around the holidays, my mom and I get tea somewhere around Los Angeles to commemorate the year and spend time together. We've tested a number of different places, but always seem to fall for the ones that take the extra step to provide something indulgent, tasty, and classic (tea at the Peninsula Hotel being a personal favorite). The act of serving tea is something I would love to carry on at home throughout the year since going out isn't always an option. I've found a few simple ways to bring that luxurious feeling home, whether it is through a polished outfit, special tea, or going the extra step to mail notes inviting your guests for the afternoon.
