Warm Up With A Moroccan Tea Party

With such a chill in the air here in New York, it’s nice to think of ways to get warm and cozy. Beyond adding extra layers, at these times when so many of us are spending time indoors, why not warm up your interior with a sophisticated tea party? This Moroccan-inspired tea ceremony should provide the perfect inspiration. Tea tables, poufs, and throw pillows all in neutral shades, are accompanied by metal trays filled with Moroccan glassware and a stunning teapot. Even if you don’t have all of the accoutrements, we invite you to set up your very own tea ceremony to warm up inside.
