After our recent trip to the Chantilly Tearoom we decided to host our own tea and weeks ago we selected this weekend for it. It couldn't have come at a better time ~ giving us the chance to share our complex feelings about the shootings in the company of friends.
We did the tea in proper style - several selections of tea (fruity, robust, calming), savory treats, scones, whipped cream with Grand Marnier, and sweets. Beautiful cups, teapots, and serving plates from our families were showcased. There is probably a study about the confirmed restorative power of tea. Add friends to the mix and it is really good medicine.
A nice cup of tea and some cakes - heaven!ReplyDelete
Wow, this looks wonderful! What a fun thing to do!ReplyDelete
And a lovely tea it must have been! Looks fabulous.ReplyDelete
Just reading this helped me find comfort for all the great people of Tucson who are hurting over the recent events. You make me want to be there... even though I can't be. I hope you let all of us know just "how" to do a tea like this one. I'd love to host one in my little town of Bertrand, Nebraska. Love to my cousins Paul Maseman and Lucinda Davis!
