tea time again

Monday, May 20, 2013

emoticon final party done. This High Tea was catered so it was a lot easier to do, with the house already clean and the yard in pretty good shape, I got to enjoy this party. This is the one where I use the little dolls I made to be party favors. I got lots of compliments on my creativity, and the yard. Now I'll share some photos. here is my committee

the weather was pretty nice just a tad warm, but a little breeze came up and helped. Let me show you the catered food of tea sandwiches...chicken, cucumber and olive. and bacon wrapped shrimp, of course scones (3 types), mini quiche, salad on skewers

of course there was lemon curd, assorted jams, and Devonshire cream for the scones, and we had cut up fruit for fruit cup with whipped cream available for those who wanted it

now check out the desserts...turtles, truffles, peanut butter fudge, red velvet cupcakes, chocolate covered strawberries, lemon bars and macaroons

and we had a tea bar set up, lots of teas to choose from and serve yourself hot water

I got lots of complements on my garden, let me show you how we decorated for this one

you see the vase on the left? a gust of wind came up and knocked it off the table and it shattered emoticon I'd just bought it a month ago.

this room divider had photos from both of my red hat chapters with us having fun

again another casualty with the gust of wind the tall perfume bottle also shattered (hand blown, hubby was not happy, since he bought it). The breeze kept lifting the table cloths too

so we opened our tea cup exchange and this is mine

there were some unique ones, like a fortune telling one, a red hat one, a molded flower

I think they had a lot of fun just opening them, some had little poems with them too

then it was time to line up for lunch

our founding Queen Mum came from Arkansas to attend this tea

our current queen caught us all up to date on future events for the rest of the year, a few things had to be changed for various reasons, so we had a little meeting after lunch

now I'm going to take you into my inner sanctorum my bedroom of red hat paraphernalia

now the party is over and this is all that remains

going into the wash

now that all four parties are over I can relax just in time for my birthday, I think I'll OD on movies and eat leftovers from the party
