Tea Time

On Saturday May 9, 2009, the second annual Women's Afternoon Tea was held as a fundraiser for Another Way, a home for abused women. Over 66 ladies enjoyed fabulous tea sandwiches, scones and savories.

Exquisite strawberry and lemon ginger scones served with lemon curd and Davonshire Cream.

Chocolate dipped orange Madelines, teapot sugar cookies and double fudge brownie chunks.

Open-face cucumber with salmon cream, cherry walnut chicken salad , ham and cheese spirals and cheese straws.

The ladies were delighted with the table decorations, fine china and silver.

Every seat had a hat on it and the ladies were quick to put them on and pretend that we all had been transported back in time.

A mini etiquette lesson was given with a visit from Miss Harriet Windsor ( played by Shari King) from the late 1800's.

One setting had a mustache cup for any gentleman diner that might have arrived.

Afternoon teas such as vanilla cream, Moroccan mint and Sench prickly pear were served.

Thanks to our friends for all your help. You guys are the best!!!!

Quite a nice variety there.

Sisters came to help and dressed the part.
