"Garden Tea".........

Next week I will be hosting my very highly anticipated "Garden Tea" along with my tea group...
"The Royal Court of Tea Sisters."

My husband has been working like a maniac on the yard and the house and the patio area.

Because I have visions of this event being something rather like this:.....



And for the table settings to be similar to these:


Yet, in my heart...I know full well that the "best laid plans of mice and men often go astray"
So it possibly could turn out to be like this:

Regardless....we shall have great fun!

Should we dress in vintage receiving attire or garden party afternoon attire? Actually I might just wear my HopeChest tea party attire and I have a few extra. Tell him we will appreciate everything he does and/or will do.

Marsha, I don't know if I have any vintage Tea Clothing that isn't Christmasy...I might need to take a trip to the Purple Cow this week.
HA!
I'll tell Don.....he'll appreciate it!

Oh, can I come? It looks wonderful... if even in my mind's eye!

Joyce said...

Dear Sheri...you as well as any "out of towners" are most certainly invited to come. Just let me know if indeed you are! HA!

Dear Miss Daisy....
My biggest concern for the Tea Party at this point is....rain and humidity.
We are all praying that the weather will be calm and that we don't "melt."
:~)

Isabella, aka Mary...I will make sure we have someone taking photos. Probably my husband! HA! He may also double as a waiter. HA!
He doesn't know that part yet.
