What are your favorite things to eat or bring to a potluck? Best potluck tip in general?

My comm has a bunch of those and I found that it's a lot harder and more annoying to transport food I cook. I'd prefer to get or make something with a disposable container or maybe not at all? I have having to carry dirty food dishes next to my brand and plust its a huge hassle in general.

I could have sworn I had a bunch I saved from another thread, but they seem to not be on my comp or phone.

>> No.10107648

I prefer to bring pasta salad or a veggie tray to potlucks. They're easy to put together and good after sitting out awhile (versus a hot dish which has cooled too much). They're also very economical and very easy to transport (they're not fiddly and it doesn't ruin the presentation if they get jostled a bit while traveling). I use Tupperware and an insulated bag and have a car so I'm not usually concerned about dealing with a mess afterwards.

Any idea of their process? Like what do they use, how long do the words stay on, are the cups even useable etc?

Is teawithgrace.com the right site? They have a lot of lovely stuff.

Pity about the lettering. I was wondering if they were even sturdy to begin with. Thank you for the answer though!


I haven't seen those in a while, hope it's over. I think people can own/display/like whatever they like, but the later ones were kinda ugly, and that's when it became obvious edgelords were just buying them for the sake of having fancy swearwords, even if it's some ugly noob-level embroidery, which is definitely some kind of stupid.

Apologies for being off topic. To get back on track, I generally bring sandwiches, or volunteer to get pizza, because a lolita gathering generally means some of the fancier girls brought fancy cupcakes/desserts and some of the low brow ones probably brought chips but very few will think of bringing something actually filling for a meal. Pizza needs the right crowd of girls who don't mind eating pizza in frills, sandwiches need time to make (or you could order in a few dozen from a bakery).

i believe grace’s teaware only sells wholesale. a friend of mine tried to order a replacement cup for one of her sets and wasn’t able to. i’ve seen parts of their sets at home goods as well as at small tea shops. that site looks like it has cute stuff though! having a full matching set is the dream right now i just have a bunch of mismatch

I also vastly prefer loose leaf made with a cup-style infuser rather than a ball, I think it just tastes better.

Aww, thanks for letting me know about grace's. I'll keep an eye out for their designs.


Loose leaves in a teapot with a tea strainer. I just don't have that many infuser balls lying around, and anyway if you get bored you can not strain the last cup and do some silly tea leaf reading as an activity. (If there's enough potterheads you can hold a competition for silliest death stories I guess)

I don't think we've ever had a whole group of walolitas, but some of us sometimes get dressed in kimono. We went to a Japan expo that had a tea ceremony complete with tea cakes, which was fun.

I'll be hosting a tea party on my birthday for the first time!

Anything I should prepare/know in advance?

My house is quite spacious and there is a garden. Ofc there will be tea, cake and macarons, and some vegan goodies as well. I am also thinking of creating a poll to choose an anime OVA or a film to watch. Other than that, what activities/props should I prepare?

I found a new job recently so money isn't an issue.

I've never been to a tea party before, but I always assumed it was a cream cheese mixture. The chives evoke a kind of bagel feeling.

>> No.10109045

That's such a cute idea. I hope your birthday is fantastic.

>Anything I should prepare/know in advance?
The timing of the party. Don't plan it around lunchtime if you're only serving tea snacks. Between 2-4 seems reasonable. And always have a little more food than you anticipate. It's always better to have more than less when serving guests.

>I am also thinking of creating a poll to choose an anime OVA or a film to watch.
Great idea, but I'd suggest giving your guests a vote for a film category or even better a single film from a list that you provide. You'll be discussing what to watch for eons if you don't narrow down the playing field a little. You could also embellish the vote delivery system a bit by making signs for your guests to hold or something.

>Other than that, what activities/props should I prepare?
A backdrop, frame, or props for a photo is always fun.

>> No.10109059

Thanks anon! I'm sure it will be fun!

I will prepare a list to choose from regarding the stuff to watch. Maybe 5-8 options. Shouldn't take too long to pick this way.

As for backdrops/props, should I stick to a theme? What should it even be? I will probably order helium baloons and flowers. Maybe colourful lollipops to hold for pictures? Just throwing ideas around!

>> No.10109070

I'll usually volunteer to bring a dessert and then make baklava. It's awesome for get togethers because it doesn't need to be refrigerated or kept warm, and outside heat (like a warm day) doesn't affect it. I also never have any left overs to bring home.

>> No.10109435


I mostly buy my tea from Adagio, since it's easy and reasonable. I like their silver needle jasmine a lot! Tealeaves's white jasmines are pretty good too, I think.

On another topic, anyone got any ideas for things to serve at tea that can be prepared relatively quickly or at least ahead of time in quantity and keep? My husband and I have afternoon tea several times a week to read together, and while I like smoked salmon and cream cheese and egg salad and everything just fine, he's a little fussier and doesn't like mayonnaise or cream cheese and I always feel bad just giving him lots of the same savouries all the time.

Sausage rolls? In its most basic form, it's a sausage wrapped in a puff pastry square, but you can always get fancy and use your favourite add-ins, my favourite is ground chicken sausage with mushrooms and caramelized onions. Buy and bake puffy pastry is a godsend.
Also, empanadas? Not very English, but a Colombian-owned tea house I went to had them and they were very nice. You can just buy premade pie crust and stuff it with whatever fillings you please.

>> No.10109617

Is it a big party? You might want to have conversation starters, like dice that have prompts like "what's your DD?" Or "What's the last piece you bought?"

Delicious and savory recipe: PAT Sandwiches (that's Pancetta-Avocado-Tomato). You will need:

6 slices sandwich bread
4-6 ounces sliced pancetta
1 medium avocado
1 large tomato
1 pinch garlic powder
1 pinch salt
1 pinch black pepper

Cut the tomato into slices a quarter-inch thick and set aside. Heat a skillet on medium-low heat, and brown the pancetta in batches. After browning, set the slices on plate lined with paper towels. Set aside. Scoop all the flesh out of the avocado. Mix with the garlic powder, salt, and pepper, and mash it until you get a smooth paste. Lay out all six slices of bread. Spread the avocado mixture on one side of all the slices. On three slices of bread, lay the tomatoes and browned pancetta, then top of the other slice of bread. Press down firmly, cut off crusts, then cut each large sandwich into quarters.

(this recipe can be adapted; for example, sometimes the avocado mixture has a squeeze of lemon in it!)

Any tips for picnics? My comm organizes tons of potluck-style picnics but the majority of people bring prepackaged junk food and the cheapest possible disposable cups and plates. I’ve tried bringing cute napkins, plates and embroidered/lacy handkerchiefs (for on your lap to protect that burando), but I got the feeling nobody really appreciated them. Plus the handkerchiefs tend to disappear afterwards, either stolen or thrown away. The entire point of picnics in my comm is that they’re inexpensive and accessible to everyone so I’m not surprised that they tend to be a bit cheap and disorganized, but I’d really like to make them cuter if I can.

I like them but in small doses. It is dumb and edgy but it's also just a little funny.

Not too long ago I hosted a small tea party with some close friends and my daughter (since I don’t bring her to meets but she loves tea parties as most young girls do). The thing is, one of my friends is vegan and another has a gluten and dairy allergy so I decided to make vegan/gluten free everything.
One of the favorites of the day were these chick pea cucumber bites. I made some cucumber tea sandwiches with vegan cream cheese, so I made theses gas a gluten free alternative for my other friend.

Not sure if you did this since there are multiple recipes, but have you ever tried making aquafaba before? If not, it might be a good substitute for dairy-free "cream". How was the whipped coconut cream? Did it hold up ok? Was the coconut taste overpowering?

It's really late where I am, but I did want to share this before I forgot.

We were actually discussing aquafaba at the tea party! None of us has tried using it before, but I saw that a lot of vegan macaron recipes called for it. I’d really like to try my hand at it since honestly macarons are almost a tea party requirement.
The cream came out pretty alright. I had problems whipping it because it kept on getting liquify, so I finally threw it in a towel and squeezed the crap out of it until I had a dry little cheese ball looking thing. Then we put it on our scones per usual and it was great. Despite using coconut flour, sugar and cream, it wasn’t super overpowering haha.

I actually have a huge assortment of black violets and smaller wild violets in my garden and I’ve always wanted to candy them to put in cakes or cookies, but rarely do I have an opportunity to bake, so I never get around to doing it.

I think I can say this now that it's losing its social stigma and gaining large scale legalization?

Last weekend I went to a cannabis lolita tea party. It was still kinda hush hush private group within my comm because we don't want the youngins getting influenced and know there are some prudes in the comm who would disapprove (thankfully, only a handful) but it was probably the best social experience I've had in years. The sweets taste so much better, the conversations are so much more lax, we're open to being goofy more, it was just leagues better than the normal meets. The organizer made cannabis infused honey, and I was surprised that it didn't add too much of a bud-flavor to the tea (just a hint, but with herbal teas it easily blends in a good way). Hoping that more lolitas get off their high horse to enjoy parties like these. We're definitely going to be doing more.

I don't really use a recipe anymore but I used this as a base when I first started. Don't make your own puff pastry it's not worth it lol and I think black pudding is disgusting so I just used my fav sausage instead
Good luck!! <3

I got a vintage tea set by Harmony House China, which has a lot of classical looking teaware, pic related. Would definitely recommend looking into antique stores for these types of tea sets. My local one currently stocks at least 10 of these vintage tea sets.

Mini pies are great and easy, just use a cupcake/muffin pan to bake them in.

Haviland is delicate, Lennox can be elegant and understated. I prefer silver for the tea service itself though.

My goal is to have a picnic with a samovar but that is stupid impractical and I don't have a yard. Has anyone done this? I believe with most traditional ones you need an actual fire.

>> No.10124447

There's electric samovars, but obviously you need an outlet for it

>> No.10124765


You're welcome!

I know blankets on a lawn or park are the traditional choice, but what about some kind of garden type tea party or even using a gazebo? I don't know how big your comm is though, so a gazebo might not be practical. I'll go look for inspo for you in any case.

Okay so I'm having a very difficult time finding an actual picture for what I have in mind but. My thought was, depending on how many you have in your comm and how much time and effort and money you wanted to put into it, if you like the idea you could do like a little canopy pavilion thing with rugs/blankets and cushions underneath it for everyone to sit on.

I tried to find pictures of this but it's harder than I thought, and almost impossible to find them with a frillier aesthetic but you could decorate to your taste. Here's what I managed to wrangle up.

You can also replace the sausage with goat cheese, it's very simple yet delicious

If you are a cheese glutton like i am, i would also recommend you those italian mozzarella croquettes! It's longer to do but so yummy

Thanks Anon, proposed this to my comm after seeing this and we'll do this next weekend. I'm excited for it. It'll be relatively small and we all pitched in for the edibles but it was only $20 a person so not bad. Word of advice is make sure everyone joining has had experience with pot so they aren't overwhelmed and know their own limits. Our group is only 6 people since we wanted to ensure everyone joining were already experienced. We'd rather not deal with someone getting anxious or overdoing it and falling asleep in a corner.

I guess speakeasy means something else regionally, weed isnt legal (or even close to it) in my city. The speakeasy i meant are pseudo probition era bars.

>> No.10136170

I like in a city where weed is legal and speakeasy means the same thing here. For years, calling a bar a speakeasy has been more about the underground jazz vibes associated with old prohibition, rather than modern day illicit substances.

>> No.10136278

>probition era bars
...Without the poisonous cocktails that could cause you to go blind or downright kill you, I hope? A cozy, jazzy bar serving safe(r) cocktails inspired by prohibition era cocktails sounds like a lot of fun, though.

>> No.10136416

Yeah, the poisonous thing is methanol and happens when you make your own booze and don't know what you're doing. Anything served legally will be methanol free, even in a historical setting.

>expensive on the east coast

Not that expensive where I live but I'm in NYC which has decent competition. You can get a pack of sour patch kids or something that's good to decently bake a handful of people. There's also this cool place that sells premade honey and tinctures for you to make tea with for about the same price. So of you can get even a small group of 5 people to pitch in $10 each (and maybe some extra for the teas and other snacks) then you can have a pretty nice party. I suppose it can be expensive if you're shelling out the expense yourself as a single organizer, but if you have multiple people pitching in you should be able to get something nice going for affordable prices. Just don't expect to book a public venue or something - do it in someone's house.

>> No.10142652

Best tip is don't have a potluck. Too many dietary concerns to fuss with and I go to a meet to relax and have fun in an elegant way.
Also in my experience, too many people in the fashion are just bad cooks and food safety is a thing.
1-3 people who know what they are doing can put on a good spread but these potlucks and picnics people keep referencing just seem sad cheap substitutes for proper meets.

Electric kettle plugs into the car outlet via adapter cord to heat the water initially, then the water is kept hot with the candle or alcohol fuel in the bottom of the samovar. Add more hot water from the kettle as needed.

Pro tip: If you bake them snicker-doodle swastikas they will never dare mess with you again.

The dough is made similarly to shortbread (flour, butter, sugar and that's it). For example as here:
