It's good to take the time to travel away for "Tea" once in awhile.
Myself, along with two friends decided to take that opportunity this afternoon and traveled down to New Orleans to go to tea at the "Windsor Court Tea Salon."
It's not far to New Orleans for us and we realize that we don't utilize the city like we should.
So my friend Marsha, and her daughter in law Christy made our way to the "Big Easy" this past Sunday afternoon.
Our table setting below.....
First course belowFour types of sandwiches...let me see if can remember,
"a ham, a salmon souffle, an egg salad, and of course, a cucumber."
In between the first and second course...we had a lovely muffin type pastry and a scone.
Both were fabulous and oh so light.
And I forgot to take a photo of them because I was so consumed by them.
I mean......."I was CONSUMING them."
This was our third and final course.
Desserts of all sorts....strawberries dipped in chocolate, and chocolates and cheese cakes and a pecan tart and other such
We had three types of tea during our entire tea.
Different flavors to compliment each course.....
While eating and chatting and sipping our tea...we enjoyed the music from this stringed quartet.
Joyce and Marsha
"Bosom Tea Friends" as Anne Shirley would most likely call us!
In the Grand Foyer of the Hotel
In the Driveway/Courtyard area
In the courtyard area waiting on our valet parking attendant to show up.
Then it was time to come back home to Baton Rouge.
However we will return again one day!
We have a "plan" in the works already.
Well, of course we do.
You know how women are........
And we love us some tea!
