On the second Wednesday of every month Treehouse has a tea party. It’s a tradition that started in the summer of 2006 when the first families and elders moved onto Treehouse Circle. This week we’re celebrating our 60th Treehouse Tea.
Everyone enjoys Tea at Treehouse. As the hostess Judy enjoys shopping at her favorite stores to make sure there are a wide array of tasty sweets and savories for everyone to enjoy. The idea is to treat people to great food and a wonderful experience; to thank folks for choosing to be a part of Treehouse. Community members, board members, partners, friends, neighbors and Treehouse supporters from all over the country come to Treehouse Teas. Depending on the season, one is encouraged to brew a pot of their favorite tea or help themselves to one of the festive iced drinks in our punch bowls.
There is an eclectic collection of teapots in the Treehouse kitchen. Over the past five years the options have grown. There are now several kinds of flowered teapots, Santa teapots and red snowman teapots in our cupboards. Santa only comes out in December. The snowmen appear on tables in the throes of winter. Our teacups come from Ikea because they are affordable and just the right size. The first set was a pretty deep pumpkin color. We chose spring green for our second set. They look great arranged in a circle on a black tray.
