Afternoon of Tea



Grandma Furniss's dishes. Red velvet cake. The little birdie salt-and-pepper shakers peeking out from tea cups and teapots. I was so happy to see her pumpkin seed table topper, it made me feel special for some reason :) It was a feast for the eyes and then just a regular feast. Or verging on gluttony, truly, I could not stop eating! Nicole knows how to put on a party!

I had the pleasure of sitting across from this sweet face. It was obvious Bridget has sat at a tea party or two, she was perfectly lovely. I think I made her nervous taking a thousand pictures of her from across the table.


(The kids got grape juice, we got the good stuff :) )

Abbey took note and wanted to do tea parties the rest of our trip. Good thing Nana had a suitcase filled with soiree essentials.


Thanks Nicole! It was a perfect afternoon.

I can hear them saying "How do you like your tea, Mrs. Nesbit?" Cute pictures! I'm sad I missed it.

I KNEW your photos would be better! Can I just admit that the one with me pouring tea for Bridget made me tear up a little? I love photos that make me feel like a fun Mom. I wish we could do a tea party every day. Thanks for making time for us. :)

Nicole's going to be so disappointed I can't remember the exact flavor. Chamomile and honey?
