How about a Cup of Tea?



I love Tea parties don't you?  
This past Sunday afternoon some of the girls in the family got together and had a tea party to honor the memory of my motherinlove that walks the streets of gold with the Lord but she sure did love her a tea party. 

It was so much fun. A time of laughter, sharing sweet and funny memories and of course....Food, dessert and  TEA!

 
 We had the table set so pretty. Every tea pot and tea cup was different and it made it all the more beautiful!








We had beautiful floral arrangements everywhere!











You had the choice of what flavor tea you would like.



I am a fan of hot tea so I enjoyed several different flavors!


We displayed my sweet motherinlove's prom dress. She would have been 77 on May 10th. Just beautiful!


We had a display of tea cups with tea favors for everyone to take home including a picture of my motherinlove. The picture was taken 7 years ago when we celebrated her 70th birthday with a tea party.


I loved the tea favors as the saying on the tea favor is so very true.



Two of my nieces made these scrumptious cakes and adorable cookies!






Don't you just love the chalk board sign?



Of course I've got to showcase my three beautiful daughters!



We sure enjoyed the tea party together and making lots of memories.



My oldest granddaughter loved every minute of the tea party.



The middle daughter enjoying her "spot of tea".



Lots of fun making wonderful memories.


Just a random shot that I loved...



Anyone for a cup of tea?



Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  3. Oh, my, what an awesome way to celebrate your mother-in-love (what a sweet name for her, too). This is just beautiful....and sweet memories for all of you, not only of her, but making more of your own to hand down to your granddaughter! I've never been to a tea party....now I want to go to one! ;-) HOPE you have a great day, my Friend!

  5. I could live here at your blog. Everything is elegant. I viewed the photos twice. You and your daughters are simply stunning. The table is lovely and the cookies!!!! Wow. Pure talent. My mom and I use to love to host tea parties. So I was the kid that inherited the tea cups/saucers and mine are all a variety too. At my next party, I will post photos and you will laugh! My neighbor and I just talked this morning about hosting a gathering for ladies in our neighborhood. Can't imagine it being this elegant, though, living here in Dodge!!!!!
