It is only fitting that on my birthday (yes, I know, I gave you no warning), I share pictures of one of my favorite activities....going to tea. As you saw from this post, my mom and I adore this venue of feminine creativity. These pictures are from a poolside tea a few weeks ago. My mom bought tickets at the Brethren Relief Auction, and we couldn't wait to get dolled up for the occasion. We had a beautiful day. We had four of the twelve tickets. Here was our group...
clockwise from top left...Janie, mom, me, and Donna.
me and mom....yeah, I know I went a little crazy with the pearls, but when other than at tea do adults get to play dress-up?
two kinds of scones hot from the oven....of course they served the obligatory devonshire cream and lemon curd.
...and the sweets! mmmm...melt in your mouth good, every one. Do you remember this cake? Same bakeshop....SOOOO yummy!
This adorable bed sits outside the playhouse that you can see in the next picture. It is seriously, one of the cutest things I have ever seen!!! I have a better picture of the playhouse from a previous tea here. I'll try to dig it up for you.
