Tea with poetry is a pretty common occurrence around my house. Most weeks we keep it pretty simple and low-key, but for special occasions we like to make it a little more, well, special. Easter is only two weeks so before we load up our u-boxes and move across the country, so we decided to have our Easter tea with poetry a little early this year. We use my wedding china for special tea with poetry celebrations, so we needed to squeeze it in before the china cabinet gets packed up.
Our Easter tea with poetry was short and sweet, but it doesn’t take much time to make memories.
Easter Tea with Poetry
We went very light on the themed decor for this Easter tea with poetry. Many years we adorn our dining room table with egg shaped candles, a chocolate bunny sculpture, and Easter platters. This year I put out my plastic Easter bunnies tablecloth and called it good. I don’t think the kids even noticed that our usual decorations were missing.

Treats and Tea
I think the special tea and poetry treats are what bring my son to the table. He is more than happy to listen to poetry if he gets to eat.
I found a cute Wilton Easter bunny cupcake kit at the grocery store. It was definitely an impulse buy, but came in handy for our Easter tea with poetry. We baked coconut flour cupcakes right after breakfast and added white frosting and the little bunny feet and tails after they were cool. The cupcake decorations were adorable, but rock hard, so I recommend taking them off the cupcakes before actually eating.
I keep individual tea bags in a small decorative basket. My children are allowed to choose any of the teas, as long as they are caffeine free. My kids have enough energy, they definitely don’t need any extra!
Additional Easter tea with poetry treats include:
We read a few spring themed poems from two poetry compilations:
I liked these poetry books because they contain a richer vocabulary than is typically found in children’s books. We discussed the new words and the poems themselves. I always ask my kids what they think certain poems are describing. Then we talk about the mental pictures that the words painted.
