May 14th I had a tea for 5 of the ladies
in Columbia, Missouri plus myself
who are in the my "Christian Tea
 Time & Hospitality" FB group.
I love Afternoon Tea and this was
a wonderful time we could get
to know one another. 

So here was our menu:
We had Chicken Salad Mini Croissants
 using the idea in the new Tea Time 
of strawberries  and Mandarin Oranges,
Egg Salad Finger Sandwiches and a 
Ham and Swiss Cheese with mustard 
Puff.  For the Scones we had 
Strawberry Buttermilk and the sweets
 Chocolate Peppermint Brownies,
 Caramel Walnut Graham Cracker
Cookies and Lemon Madeleines. 

 We had
Wild Blueberry, Ginger Peach
 and Decaf
Apricot teas.

The shelves here have different themes:
Anne of Green Gables, Jane Austen,
Downton Abbey, Titanic, Queens and
Kings of England, Beatrix Potter, etc.

Friends: Natasha, Stacey,
 Nancy, Judy
and Jennifer

Of course, I wanted to share my garden
with the irises in bloom and the 
foxgloves getting started now.

We took a lot of photos but I
am sharing just a few.  It was
very hot outside.

This is a Christian group so we
had special prayer for America
and for the needs of the ladies
 in our group.  We had wonderful
fellowship encouraging one

Natasha who was born in the
Ukraine took a selfie
with the mirror:

Hope you enjoyed seeing our tea!

How wonderful! So lovely that these ladies live close enough to you to participate in this wonderful tea party! What a blessing! Everything looks so elegant and delightful! And your garden is just lovely! Hot or not, I am sure the ladies enjoyed being in the garden for a little while. Thank you for sharing this wonderful time with us. It's too bad Missouri is so far from Florida!

What an absolutely lovely day for you to have a t for these beautiful ladies. So nice that you can share your time together and your prayers. A walk through your garden was like the icing on cake.

What a delightful tea party! I so wish I had a garden like yours..everything looks so fresh & colorful. I need to plant some foxglove in the beds along the side of my home. I have pink as well as white peonies & purple as well as yellow iris, lily of the valley & hyacinths. They look pretty but are not in areas where I can entertain folks.
Your food choices are magnificent & so beautifully displayed. It is easy to see you love doing this. Please tell Natasha we are praying for her birth country & that I LOVED her dress!!!!
Thank you for sharing this lovely event with us! 💕
