In the air, there are plots of murder as well as the odd flurry of snow.
Winter is here! It is far too cold to be even contemplating venturing outside, but you’ll hear no cry of complaint from these quarters. What more could I wish for than a Hercule Poirot adventure on the Orient Express. But there is more to Tea with Mary Kate’s Tale of Tea & Agatha Christie, so do join me on an adventure of Agatha Christie inspired idea’s at Christmas.
Read a Agatha Christie Christmas themed Book
Reading is such a distracting, indulgent pleasure, and often one we only make time for at holidays. Choose one of her books with a Christmas theme to keep you in the festive mood or just reread your favourite one! A few that immediately spring to mind are:
The adventure of the Christmas Pudding
Hercule Poirot’s Christmas
A Christmas Tragedy
And while you are reading your book, a spot of Agatha Christie Inspired Afternoon Tea wouldn’t go amiss
I can think of no more perfect an afternoon than sitting by a roaring fire, sipping freshly brewed leaf tea from a beautiful vintage tea cup, with the most difficult decision being whether to start with a gorgeous sandwich, or go straight for the delicious cakes.
If you are feeling Adventurous, Investigate where you can see one of her plays
I love An Unexpected Guest, marvelously inventive, it keeps you guessing right until the last moment.
Dream of visiting Greenway
Or better still, plot how you are actually going to visit as this gem of a National Trust property is currently shut. It is an amazing place to imagine having afternoon Tea with Agatha Christie. Agatha’s is often quoted in saying that Greenway “is the loveliest place in the world”, and it is very hard to disagree with her.
Finally, Grab your dancing shoes & dress to kill for an amazing Agatha Christie Tea Dance
If you happen to be in London on 27th December, put on your most gorgeous vintage frock, and head for the Clore Ballroom where a free Agatha Christie tea dance is being held to celebrate her 120th birthday. With 1930s and 1940s live vintage music, who could resist the abundance of vintage glamour!
