A Strawberry Tea Party!
This summer all over the UK,
ladies are having fundraising Strawberry Tea Parties.
British ladies are baking, canning and knitting all for the wonderful effort to raise money for Breast Cancer Care. I love this campaign! How wonderful...
tea parties with a cause!
Strawberries & Cream Cupcakes
For more information, have a look the UK's Breast Cancer Care website.
their Strawberry Tea Cosy.
The adorable tea cosy is a free pattern, thanks to knitwear designer Libby Tomey who supports this cause. Knitters knit up Strawberry Tea Cosies and then raffle them off at Strawberry Teas. I love this idea!
I found a delicious recipe for Strawberries & Cream Cupcakes in Cupcakes by Janet Smith. (Yes, it's even a British cook book.)
So, now I'm ready for a Strawberry Tea Party!
I do hope this idea takes off here in America...
for one of our Breast Cancer charities.
In the meantime,
it's a nice reminder to make a donation to one's favorite charity.
