Are you thinking about giving porcelain tea sets as Christmas gifts this year? Every little girl needs a tea set. When she’s a toddler, she should start out with a plastic or acrylic tea set. When she gets beyond the putting-small-things-in-her-mouth stage, she could move up to a tin or wooden tea set. Then, once she gets old enough to really appreciate breakable items and learns to take care of her possessions, she needs a pretty porcelain tea set or china tea set. Having her own pretty dishes for serving will make her feel special, and it provides a valuable lesson in handling delicate items carefully and caring for them appropriately. That’s my take on it, but maybe it’s just a “Southern thing.” Perhaps learning to act "lady-like" was our first initiation into becoming genteel ladies of society, so to speak.
When I was a kid, all little girls had a tea set. Like I said, maybe it’s just a Southern tradition. We’d dress up in play clothes or in our mothers’ high heels, fancy hats, and boas and have tea parties with our friends. If friends weren’t available when we were in the mood for tea, we’d sit our stuffed animals around the little table and enjoy our tea with them. Sometimes our “tea” was Koolaid, and sometimes it was iced tea – the house wine of the South. We would also enjoy cookies or tiny sandwiches from our dainty, delicate porcelain plates. We used our very best manners while at our tea parties. Once in a while we could even cajole our guy pals or older brothers to join us for tea by luring them with homemade cookies!
I still have one of my porcelain tea sets from my childhood. It’s in the Blue Willow pattern and it’s displayed proudly in my dining room. As an adult, I purchased a set of dishes in the same pattern, so I can entertain adult family members and the grandkids at the same time, using matching plates, cups, saucers, and serving pieces in the same beautiful pattern. If you're planning to buy a porcelain tea set for a little girl on your gift list, you might want to find out if the mother has a china pattern that can be matched with the tea set. If not, you might want to find a tea set in a pattern that's also available in regular tableware.
I’ve carried on the tea set tradition, too. When my three daughters were children, they all had tea sets. In the last couple of years, I’ve also given plastic tea sets to my granddaughters as Christmas gifts. Two years ago, l gave my oldest granddaughter, who was seven years old at the time, a porcelain tea set as a Christmas gift. She was old enough not to break it. Her younger sister is seven now, and I think it's time for her to receive a porcelain tea set, too.
If you’re trying to decide on birthday gifts or Christmas gifts for little girls, or for not-so-little girls, a porcelain tea set would be an excellent choice. They can be played with, displayed on a shelf or in a curio cabinet, and handed down for generations. Start your own family tradition this year!
