Denise held a lovely tea party for us girls. It was an afternoon to remember. The sunshine was peaking through the clouds to give us a glimmer of light as we sat around the table. Little girls in their dresses. Mothers and daughters. A special set time to purposely and intentionally and fancifully gather and enjoy together.
Beautiful flowers. Colorful dishes. Sightings of Springs! These are a few of my favorite things.
I brought along Cucumber Tea Sandwiches. They have been a tea party necessity for a long time. They are quite simple, and seemingly healthy. I think they are light and dainty. Perfect for Tea Time!
