A most terrifying thing happened to me. Someone asked me, Hildie McQueen, non-southerner, to organize a tea party at my church!
After almost twenty years in the South, I’d yet to attend one, but I did read Southern Lady’s tea magazines, which gave me lots of fabulous ideas.
I began by setting up the room and placing decorations about in the colors I chose of lavender and green. Inexpensive plastic tablecloths, silk flowers and Wisteria from the vines in the church’s own backyard completed the pretty theme.
Several ladies brought beautiful teapots and I also purchased some simple white ones from a local discount store to ensure we had enough. Tea in different flavors were placed on each table along with honey, sweeteners and cream.
Finally the ladies came, some even wore pretty hats. It was a fun entertaining evening of tea talk, door prizes and a guest speaker. Inspirational Romance Writer, Lindi Petersen.
