I have an antique side table which has recently become the household “tea centre.” This isn’t because the people in my home are adorable and quaint, though Miranda sips tea frequently enough to probably qualify. The “tea centre,” rather, is purely functional. Whenever we would plug the water boiler into a kitchen outlet, it would blow a fuse. It was irritating that this little water boiler was stressing out the outlets, of course, but eventually we stopped fighting it and moved the boiler has across the room. The tea, coffee, and mugs followed suit.
This became an impromptu “tea centre.” One which needed to get its seasonal-ism on.
There are two ways that I have been able to set up the Fall “tea centre,” and I think they’re both pretty adorable and fun. Right now the more “halloween”-esque design is on display. Turns out that spiderwebs and a “Troy and Abed in the Morning!” mug are the very best combination.
Fall Tea Time: Phase 1
You could easily replace the big ol’ glass martini glass here with a big ol’ glass anything. Even a bowl would do the trick, though you would have to rearrange. You could always store/display the tea in extra mugs while using a vase with some autumn flowers as a centerpiece instead.
That was the “tea centre” for Autumn Apartment phase 1, but of course things had to get just a bit creepier when October entered the scene.
Fall Tea Time: Phase 2
Same items, different presentation, but equally fitting for this time of year. Don’t worry, I haven’t given up my love for cheapy/seasonal dollar store ribbon. I just relocated it to the PM drink centre…
That’s the one! Essentially, whatever your drink of choice, I’m that hoping my October apartment will have you covered. Now all I need to do is grab some spiced pumpkin tea…mmmm. Anyone know a good brand?
Happy Halloween season, everyone!
