On a beautiful sunny summer day we hosted a Downton Abbey Garden Tea and I thought
you might want to come along too. So grab a cup of tea and maybe a pretty hat and join us.
My rather large collection of pretty plates and teacups etc. came in handy but one of my
daughter's who spend the afternoon washing them all thought "paper was the new china"!
My friend Snow spent a few days helping me with setting up tables and all the other little details that had to be done beforehand.Even my sister visiting from Vancouver for that week got roped into helping.
We served Lady Baker's Tea that was generously donated to us and it was delicious served hot and also as an iced tea. Thank you so much! The tea is available at our local Farmer's Market or visit her here online .
Friends enjoying a chat.
Now, I would love to enjoy a cup of tea with a couple of friends, Linda and Sarah who live too far away to attend but generously sent along a donation for sweet Lucas anyway-thank you so much! Maybe,someday soon we can actually have a real visit over a cup of tea!!!
Thank you so much to all who attended our Downton Abbey Tea and to all who worked so hard behind the scenes. A special thank you to my friend Snow who contributed an unbelievable amount of hours so cheerfully-we couldn't have done it without you all!
We had several requests to make it an annual event but as Snow laughingly said "that is like asking someone after they have just given birth when they are having another baby"! Don't be discouraged though because after my first child I did have 6 more!
I hope you too enjoyed coming along today!
