Tea Party HELP - characters

Just me again – needing tea party planning help. OK, so I’m working on writing a mystery tea party in which Queen Elizabeth’s royal teapot is stolen.
I need help with names (also personalities traits) for characters (women only) in which people can dress up as the character. I’d like the names to pertain to tea – for instance I’ve thought of naming one lady Ginger Oolong. I will probably need at least 10 characters unless it’s so popular that I need more! LOL

Anyone got anything snappy? Can be funny too!

THANKS!!!

Lord Earl Grey and/or Lady Grey, interesting info about Earl Grey himself on Wikipedia too :D
Hmmm something to do with rose, maybe Miss Rose Bergamot or something along those lines? This sounds fun!

Teavana has an Amadine Rose, which strikes me as a pretty name. I could see her as a carefree flapper type gal.

MissLena said

Ooh yeah that is a very pretty name!

Ooh, sounds like fun! Here are my suggestions

Miss Sakura Sencha, an exotic film star who has come to town for the tea party. She has a quick wit and seems a big devious.

Smokey Souchong, a jazz singer with a smooth mellow voice that fits his personality. Can be a bit harsh if you don’t have the taste for his brand of humor.

Byron Chai, a wannabe-royal who is “new money” and has the snooty attitude to match

Lady Violet Londonderry, a refined and elegant lady who is always plotting something or other

Oh you already mentioned Lady Londonderry lol oops
Hey whenever Miss Sakura Sencha gets up from her seat everyone should yell “Sencha was up …”then ask her for something from the table.
Okay silly I know but it is a play on something my uncle used to say to his wife – he would call her sensuous and then when she got up would say “sensuous was up would you get me a beer?”

I’m loving it!!! Keep them coming. Forgot to add that they will all be female characters so I’ll change the post.

Alphakitty said

Ooh, if they’re all ladies I will alter my two male ones. I think Smokey is a kind of gender-neutral name, but switch Byron to Brandy XD

MissLena said

Ah yes, slightly altering my suggestion too, Lady Lavender Grey :), a shy, quiet soul with a passion for picking flowers, particularly lavender hehe

Lady Londonderry – you may want to do some background study on this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derry
I guess for some religious reason the name can be somewhat offensive to some people from a certain area. I really know not of what I speak.

Ooh and one more, Miss Jasmine Pearl, an exotic young lady who seems innocent on the exterior, but unfurls into having quite a wild, outgoing personality after getting to know her. :)

Ahaha I’m having way too much fun with this, sorry one more! Maybe for the host or something – Lady Camellia Sinensis, the planner of the tea party or the one behind the stolen teapot. Lol maybe not too original, but it might work :D

Oh what fun!! :)

Miss Rose Congou, a thorny old woman who wears way too much perfume!

Lady Violet Black, a rather dark, sardonic woman who dominates the conversation with her whip-like remarks

Miss Patty Peppermint- a bubbly, refreshing girl who has a knack for tending to the unwell

Okay, I know it’s very Beauty and the Beast but doesn’t everyone love Mrs. Potts? The matriarch or host of the whole shindig.
