Sorry to be late getting this post finished. I was waiting on some photos from a friend, and Tim wanted to take me to breakfast this morning!
My friend Kelly took these photos of each of the table centerpieces. Each centerpiece had items representing a different nation.
We set six tables of eight with all my own tea cups and vintage glass luncheon plates. We used all of my tea pots and creamers and sugar bowls. I've been collecting for many years, and realized this year that I need a few more tea pots!
We gave every guest a globe ornament
Some of our guests listening to our speaker
Karen Andreola was our speaker last evening.
I know that some of the photos are dark. I work to bring in ambient lighting for our teas, as the only other option is the florescent over head lighting. Way too bright!
I was so busy getting everything ready that I didn't take any photos of the tables set before the tea other than the one I showed yesterday. If I can find any from friends who attended, I'll post them.
I did take a photo today of my tea pots so you could see them.
The second teapot on the left is the very first tea pot I ever owned. Tim bought it for me for my 26th birthday!
My newest teapot. I bought this at HomeGoods this week.
I look forward to this tea every year, and I could not do it without my kids and Tim's help with set up. I also want to thank the Joseph's sisters for their help, too!
