An Elegant Way to Serve Tea and Coffee

When my husband and I had been married twenty-five years, he bought me a beautiful silver plated tea set. It was the perfect time in our lives for such a lovely gift. Our daughters were growing up and I was spending more time entertaining women's groups in our home. Being able to serve tea and coffee in my traditional silver pots was so much more elegant than the commercial looking pots I had used in the past.

Many people are concerned about the high cost of sterling silver tea sets and, of course, they can cost thousands of dollars. However, silver plated sets are much more affordable and they are just as solid and attractive. They are a great gift for the Silver 25th Anniversary or for any other special occasion. They are especially ideal for a woman who loves to serve tea or coffee in her home.

When my husband purchased my silver tea set, there was only a limited selection available at a few department and specialty stores. Today it is possible to sort through a wide variety of choices online, from sites like Amazon, or in many fine department stores.

In addition to my own enjoyment of the tea set, what really delighted me was the fact that our daughters also enjoyed it. Every Christmas, we would host a holiday party for the girls in their classes. I loved seeing their elementary and middle school friends show up in their pretty satin and velvet holiday dresses, eating little crustless sandwiches and sipping spice tea from tiny tea cups. The girls knew this was a special event and were always careful and acted very grown-up. Over the years, the worst that happened was a couple of spilled cups of tea. Even though all the girls are now adults, I still hear from some of them from time to time and they mention how much they enjoyed those tea parties.

This Design is Perfect for a Traditional Home

Because most people set out their silver tea service, it is important to choose a style that goes well with your home decor. I love the sleek lines in this set.

You will find that there are also contemporary designs available from Amazon and other online sources.
