Celebrating Thursday! الاحتفال بالخميس

In celebration of the weekend, I am taking half of the day off!
This means:
  • Going to the gym in daylight.
  • Spending time with my family
  • Tending to and pampering my little self.
  • Get my university transcripts so I would finally finish my grad school application!
My best friend's mother is away, so I suggested that we host a tea party at her place! Suggestions on theme, decorations, menu? what to wear and so on?
I think Arabic is a very, very beautiful language;
the word spells "Light" in Arabic نور here ; 'Spacetime Continuum - Noor' by Sarah Badr, 2008.

عشق is love..or passion! here
The sun is just begining to come out now at 11:30 am...lazy are we?
There are some people in your life, who make the dreariest of days bright. The coldest of days warm. Effortlessly; for all they need to do is smile. Smile and your life is a better place, your day is suddenly rainbow-like.

In celebration of the weekend?!? Love it! :D
And ooh, a tea party. Hmm.... you could always take a look at Vanessa's site:
I think it's cool to have lots of different cups and plates and colours... I'd probably have a coffee + chocolate party myself though! :D Have fun...

A tea party? Alice in Wonderland of course! I could cram plates full of jam tarts and millionaires shortbread!

Arabic is so beautiful you're right :) I spent a few years in Riyadh when I was little and my parents bought cutlery when we were there, the hall marks almost look like decoration it's so pretty and delicate!

Good girl for taking half the day off and pampering yourself!!

Ohh I adore tea parties!
Outfits must be extremely feminine!!
Menu, cakes, jelly, sandwiches, pink lemonaide and of course some tea!

(The picture of the tea set is soo beautiful!!)

I love tea parties! They remind me on a 50s - big skirts, jazz, a lot of fun! cool!

I'm afraid I don't understand about the place with the catalogues and you order they ship?


Is it an online thing?
That is a good idea too! What I want to do first is find some nice shops out in the real world that may want to sell my products. Perhaps my photographs would look great in a café in Cairo... or you know of a nice independent bookstore... :) :) :) No worries, just asking if maybe you can think of something! It would be seriously cool to be represented in Egypt.

The teacups are so lovely. Arabic calligraphy is quite lovely...

Oh, a tea party! I am thinking of a good selection of little cupcakes/macaroons/all the others yummy finger foods. perhaps you can dress girlishly? you know, like a little girl get lost in mountains of lovely food with frds.

and I do agree that Arabic is a beautiful lanaguage, it's very exotic and mysterious to me :)
