Mother’s Day weekend, we hosted our very first Queen’s Tea. We invited all of our friends to join us for tea sandwiches, tea cakes, fresh fruit, hot and iced teas and great company. Of course, you had to show up in your finest hat, at least. Most women showed up in their best attire, from lace, to pearls and elbow length gloves. You can see in the pics below and if you are a fan of ours on Facebook then you can see the whole album, just how elegant everyone was dressed. It was a wonderful time.
There were about 25 ladies in all, dressed to impress. We played, Heads or Tails, gave away teapots and even crowned a Queen. Mrs. Judy Thorn, a local customer who practically lives at our shop, we feel like she’s the closest to family we can get, was a much deserving queen. Well, and she just so happened to sit at the lucky spot. (We placed a “Queen” memo under a random plate for our winner). The Queen got to chose from a list of “specials” that she could share with her “court”. Judy, a gracious Queen, let the ladies vote on what they wanted as their “special”. They chose buy 5 fat quarters get 5 FREE. Not bad….
It was really a great time, those of you who missed it…We missed you! Hoping we get to do this again next year….I’m thinking, Yes!
Enjoy the pictures and let us know what you thought.
