Teacher's Tea

I've had so much fun stuff going on since coming home that I haven't had time to post it all.  Last week, my mom and I had the privilege of doing a tea party for the teachers from my elementary school.  They get together on a regular basis, and they asked my mom to do a tea (something we both enjoy...my mom is amazingly talented).  A few of these ladies started working there after I graduated from good ol' Sporting Hill Elementary, but my 1st, 3rd, and 6th grade teachers were there.  It was a bit windy but otherwise a nice day for an outdoor tea.


                                                                      

                                            

Devonshire cream in edible flowers (I forget what they are called) to go with the scones.
    

There were a few other courses, but I missed taking pictures of them.  We served a lemon ice cream pie (which is my favorite dessert on the planet) with these other tasty treats.

Having enjoyed the delights of your mama's talent on many occasions, my mouth was watering.

Would love to know the recipe for that lemon ice cream pie if she's willing to share. :o)

Hope you're house hunting is fruitful--and Patrick's getting over that jet lag okay. Praying for you guys today.

Oh I so wish I could've come to that! When we had our brief stay in New York and my sis came out to visit, my mother-in-law treated the 3 of us to High Tea at Bergdorf Dorman's (is this how you spell it?) and it was the most amazing experience I have ever had. My MIL said we were all having a "feminine moment" away from all the boys. Feminine and Fun was exactly what it was! Glad you got to enjoy that with your mother!

Yum!!!

That lemon ice cream pie. I will never forget it as long as I live.

I have never been to a tea party. One at your Mom's house seems like heaven on earth.

Miss you.

Looks beautiful as usual when catered by your mom - she truly has a gift for hosting tea parties (well, any event, for that matter!)

I definitely need to try that lemon ice cream pie when I'm back on dairy, so please post that recipe!

Hope your house-hunting efforts are successful today...

Wow, Lynn - not to sound completely uncouth, but that's a whole lotta fancy and would have been a fun party to attend! It looks like it was a wonderful time - and the food sounds amazing.

I really like all of yor pictures that include a back yard and the outdoors; that's something I really miss here.
