A Return to Refinement and Manners
There is no question that culture has changed since you were a child, and very much so, since your parents were children. While there is something to be said for a more casual lifestyle, it is important not to lose sight of etiquette. A Classic Porcelain Tea Set must be approached far differently from juice boxes, plastic bottles, and paper cups. Little ones will learn to take care of nice things and distinguish them from cheaper items. You can also teach your young ones a bit of history.
According to legend, one of Queen Victoria's ladies-in-waiting, Anna Maria Stanhope, known as the Duchess of Bedford, is credited as the creator of afternoon teatime. Because the noon meal had become skimpier, the Duchess suffered from "a sinking feeling" at about four o'clock in the afternoon. She took to having a light snack and cup of tea at that time.
