Good day everyone! I want to give a heartfelt thank you to Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey for mentioning me on her blog and sending her friends over my way to leave comments on my first post. I can't express my gratitude for all your kind words and encouragement! When I first saw that I had 11 comments, I thought my husband and kids left comments for me. After all, who else would have read my blog? What a surprise that my blog had reached people outside my kitchen counter!I wish I could give each one of you a great, big hug. I truly feel like I've made new friends.
I thought I'd share with you some pictures of a "Pretty in Pink" baby shower tea I was honored to host for a friend who had her first daughter after 6 boys in a row! It was a family affair with my husband polishing all the silver, my younger ones setting the tables, me making and garnishing the tea sandwiches, sweets, and savories, and my older kids plating and serving. Now that's teamwork!
Here's the yummy dessert table.
My friend did a nice job arranging the fresh fruit, don't you think?
The picture frame held the tea menu: Cornucopia Salad, Curry Chicken on Croissant, Watercress & Egg Salad Tea Sandwiches, Cucumber & Mint Tea Sandwiches, Mini Quiche, Assorted Savory Puff Pastries, Scone with Lemon Curd and Devonshire Cream, Assorted Pastries, Fresh Fruit, and 8 types of teas. Is your mouth watering yet?
Here is the beverage table with strawberry lemonade.
This is one of the tables set in the parlor across from the dining room.
This is the main table in the dining room.
I felt privileged to serve and pamper these lovely, hard working moms for the afternoon. Many of them commented at how the felt like "ladies" again. Mission accomplished!
