I'm a little tea pot short and stout, here is my handle here is my spout, when I get all steamed up hear me shout, tip me over and pour me out. A preschool song may not be the best selection for the chic afternoon tea party I am hosting tomorrow, but it certainly fits the theme. The floral invitations have been sent, the sweet and savory baked goods have been prepared, my patio is the perfect picture of spring in full bloom and all I have to do is brew the tea and hit play on the stereo. Only I haven't compiled a playlist... it's a party where the conversation is more important than the music, so a soothing, relaxing, gentle background noise is what I am looking for.

When I was younger I spent many an hour in front of a mirror in a leotard and tights as a ballet dancer. I enjoyed listening to classical music in ballet class and still take pleasure from listening to it today. Contemporary classical is what I'm after here, the whole concept behind this event is to take the stuffy idea of a tea party and make it modern for today's hostess with the mostess. Anything by composer Philip Glass is always great (you may not know him, but he does the soundtracks for movies like The Illusionist and The Hours) and you can't go wrong with his solo piano music. The Most Relaxing Classical Music in the Universe is another wonderful option. BuzzSugar suggested putting several soundtracks like the music from The Piano and Pan's Labyrinth into the disc changer and hitting random. Have an awesome selection of songs that would be right on for my tea party? Do tell me about them below!
