~teacup lunch~

I came across this sweet idea for serving lunch in a stack of teacups while paging through one of my favorite magazines awhile back. I decided immediately that at some point I was going to enjoy a teatime lunch this way. Today was that day!  It was really simple and I love the results. Elegant, casual and whimsical. The next time you host a tea party for your friends, maybe you could try this. Today I just posted the pictures, but I will post the recipes soon. Enjoy!

    Love, love, love this idea! Now it just needs to get cold enough to have soup for lunch.

      You could do a chilled apple soup 😉 I like chilled soups in the warm months. Or…you could just do the stacked teacups for the sweets course! Chocolate mousse (or something) in the bottom cup and a little jam tart under the top cup.

    This is so clever! I’m having one of those, ‘Why didn’t I think of that?’ moments, though!

      I did the same thing! Got the idea from a “Food & Wine” magazine a couple years back. it’s especially cute with a pretty truffle perched right on top 🙂 xo
