April 13th, 2019 - 10th Annual Tea Party: "Diamonds and Pearls"
I may be prejudiced; however, WHAT A WONDERFUL TEA!!!!!
The tea committee members each had a table to decorate.
And there were 11 tables,
with as many ideas to make the "Diamonds & Pearls" stand out for the 10th annual event.
An "Ancient" quilt covered the sign in table, with door prizes, gloves, along with name tags for all.
After attendee's signed in, they picked out their tea choice, got a tea pot and hot water before they headed to their tables.
(remember, click on the pictures to have them come in larger so you can see the details)
After one of the guests did us the honor of saying a blessing over the food and day, everyone headed for the food tables. This year we tried something different on the sandwiches, to make them available for all dietetic needs. You picked your bread, or not, and then your filling.
Course not everyone holds close and dear to their eating habits and we made sure we had plenty of offerings for those attendees also. (ha ha)
We tried to cut down this year, and somehow........
managed to have FOUR tables of offerings. The last table was blessed with vegetables and dip, and fruits - with biscotti of course.
Our Tea Committee was honored this year with 10 of our guild members volunteering their time, ideas, and work.
Vevia, Carol, Deb, Juanita, Verna Lee, Teresa (Jeanette's sister), Winnie, Jeanette D., Virginia and (not shown) Dixie.
Thank you ladies for an over the top Tea.
You all out did your selves.
There were also quilts on display and many of the ladies brought quilts for Show and Tell.
Lots of tells about diamonds and pearls also.
With 50 attendees this year, I do so hope I got a picture of everyone.
Thank you all for your lovely smiles and for letting me interrupt your luncheon.
After Show 'n Tell time, each table drew for a winner for the door prizes. Ten door prizes, plus one to grow on, and one more to make it interesting.
Look behind Marilyn here and you will see the last of the quilts on display.
I love the new title Marilyn gave her prize, she called it her fidget bag.
We pray that each of the ladies enjoys their gifts and are able to put them to good use.
Thank you to all the committee members that made the door prizes possible.
Sorry if you missed out on Saturday - do pray you are able to join us next year, Lord willing.
And thanking all of the guests and members that joined right in on the clean up.
Makes you cry sometimes to think of what wonderful people we know.
Again - Thank you to all !!!! v
