You don’t really need an excuse to plan one — getting together for good conversation and sociable noshing is always enough! — but there are some classic occasions for teas. A baby or wedding shower, celebrating Mother’s Day or a birthday, and welcoming a new neighbor or coworker are just a few times that are particularly suited to teas.
