Please join us for a Mother Daughter Tea
at our Home
on Friday, September 19, 2008 at 12 o'clock in the afternoon.
Please bring a"dainty" (dessert) or hors d'oeuvre (appetizer)
along with your favorite tea cup.
If any mother-daughter or sister-sister team
would like to share their talents with us,
we would be thrilled. Solo presentations are welcome as well!
Poems, dramatic readings or recitations, song, instrumental, etc.
are all ideas for you to share.
We would also cherish a testimony (either spoken or read)
that anyone feels led to share.
Attire is period style clothing from late 1800's to
early 1900's ( "Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea" type clothing) or semi-formal
(tea party style) is welcome as well.
Feel free to don tea party hats, gloves, etc. if you wish!
Have fun with it!
The young gentlemen of the tea. :-)
We served three different kinds of tea...
We had many delicious foods with our afternoon tea..... cream puffs, cream cheese eclairs, scones (cut out in the shape of acorns and leaves), pimiento cheese on crackers, carrots and broccoli with dressing, hard boiled eggs, turkey and cheddar/swiss cheese on croissants, peanut butter and grape jelly sandwiches (in acorn shapes) gold fish crackers, sesame seeds and chocolate chip muffins!
Having a delightful time! :-)
Enjoying food, tea and fellowship! :-)
After eating, we all gathered in the living room for a time of sharing. Piano pieces were played, and an inspirational poem and quote were read along with more grand visiting. :-)
We later took a turn around the yard. Our first stop was at the miniature roses. :-)
Well now it's time for clean up......
........and rest! :-)
So long for now!
A note to the guests:
Thank you ladies for all your help with the tea! We greatly enjoyed having you all over! :-)
Some of the ideas for the tea were taken from the book, "Raising Maidens of Virtue" and and also from the Author's blogs: http://www.yoursacredcalling.blogspot.com
