On Saturday I cashed in my winning bid at our Missions auction for a Tea for Eight. I set the table and invited the guests and then was able to sit and enjoy being served along with my seven guests.
As my guests arrived they were invited to choose the tea cup and saucer from the tea cart. Once the choices were made and the headbands chosen we sat down for our first cup of tea before the Tea Sandwiches arrived.
Kathy, the gal on the left was the the cook and organizer and she brought along a helper.
Each sandwich type and quiche were delicious. Not sure what my favorite was. Cucumber Cream Cheese and Dill was delicious and such a classic. The artichoke sandwich might have been my favorite but then there was the Chicken Salad. Something else that was different besides the yummy artichoke sandwich was the Cream cheese, Apricot, Olive and Pecans. Would we have room for Scones?
Oh yes we had room and some of us even managed a second scone. All the right stuff came on the luncheon plate for the scone along with fresh strawberries in a lavender syrup.
After our Scone course we decided that a little walk about would be good. Addy was really taken with the older girls and they were very sweet with her.
After our walkabout we enjoyed a piano interlude from the girls.
The Dessert Course. A picture is worth a thousand words.
I think the youngest guest thought the dessert course was the best!
Addy and Auntie Lolo.
Addy’s great aunt Rhonda bought this tea dress for her. If you look closely the skirt has teapots and teacups on it.
I got the cutest thank you card from one of the young girls in my box at church on Sunday. She thanked me and said she thought the tea was excellent!! It was a wonderful treat to be served tea in my home with my guests using my dishes. We were all thankful for air conditioning, too, since we reached the upper 80’s on Saturday.
Happy Summer everyone! Summer is coming in hot for us here with 3 digits predicted for the end of the week!
