The Tea Party

All week you have been seeing snippets of things I was making for our tea party. Today was the day. We had no idea how many people to expect, but we had 34 ladies show up. We were hoping for at least 12. I think there were a few more than just the 12 we were hoping for. πŸ™‚ Everyone raved about the food and what a fun day it was. This was the first of these ladies only events, and I think it will be the first of many more yet to come.

You all know I made quite a bit of the food, but other ladies brought delicious treats too. It was a huge success. I made two different kinds of truffles, white chocolate lime and chocolate lavender Making Truffles; orange scones Orange Scones; Devonshire clotted cream; strawberries and mixed berries, and two kinds of finger sandwiches, egg salad and open faced cucumber with herbed cream cheese and salmon.

Here is what our table looked like when we started serving the tea. The tables were filled with all kinds of delicious treats, with many ladies contributing to the affair.

We started off with prayer, then let everyone loose on the food. As people were enjoying all the delicacies, they were also playing some ice breaker games to get to know each other better. Some people knew each very well and others were brand new to each other. But by the end of the day, everyone had made at least one new friend, and/or got to know someone better.

After the food it was time to get up and walk around, and still learn as much as we could about our new friends, with another game. As you can see everyone was talking to everyone.

Everyone had such a good time and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We are already talking about the next one. But Wendy and I both decided we needed a bit of break first. πŸ™‚

Make the most of everyday and make every day great. Stay safe and stay well Everyone. ‘Til next time.
