Hey everyone! I wanted to show you some pictures of our ladies tea we had at our church on Saturday, April 20th. Six ladies from our church, including myself, each took a table as a hostess. We decorated with real china, silver, flowers, linens etc. This is my table……
The china I used for my table was my mom’s, she gave it to me as a family heirloom. Both my grandfathers (her dad and my dad’s father) got the entire set for her by filling their cars with gasoline. Each time they got gas, they received pieces of the china. I think that’s so cool that gas stations gave away fine china! Too bad we don’t have anything like that anymore. :0) I have every piece of that china you can imagine…..teapot, sugar, creamer, gravy boat, 24 piece place settings of plate, bread plate, cup and saucer, salad plate, berry bowl, soup bowl…..even down to vegetable bowls and salt and pepper shakers. I imagine they bought a LOT of gas to get that many pieces of china!
The rest of these tables were the other ladies….it was such a wonderful day! We had scones, cucumber sandwiches, beef and Swiss on rye, chicken salad in phyllo cups, cookies, little cheesecakes, clotted cream, lemon curd, candy, tea and punch.
This table is my mom’s….she had a Victorian theme. Pink roses, pearls, and cameos. So pretty!
I love all the pinks and pastels that were used to decorate. Each table was so lovely.
The table with the peacock was our Junior Hostess table. We had a sweet group of teenage girls from our church act as hostesses for each table…they were in charge of filling teacups, glasses and making sure we had plenty of food on the plates at all times. They did a great job!
Hope you enjoy looking at the rest of the photos….we had such a great time!
Have a great day!
