In honor of Whiners Dee and Julia being in jolly old England, I thought I’d share my recent adventures at a local tea house! Four times a year the ladies in my neighborhood get together for our quarterly Ladies Lunch. It’s always a good time, but last week’s luncheon was especially fun. It was held at a tea house and we had a blast. Now, usually a sedate tea house wouldn’t make one think of having a blast, but this is a very special tea house. One of the owners is a hat maker, so there are dozens of gorgeous hats decorating the beautifully appointed space. And the best part is you can wear them while taking tea! There were forty of us, and we all wore a hat, sipped tea (black current flavor–YUM!), nibbled on perfect finger sandwiches, scones, and the lightest, most delicious desserts ever (cream puff, anyone?). We laughed and clinked cups and had a grand old time. Here’s me and one of my neighbors wearing our elegant hats.
Have you ever been to a tea house? Tell us about it! If not, what did you do this weekend? I hope you had a great one!
