Hi lovelies! I hope that you all had an amazing weekend and were able to stay out of the rain or enjoy the sun! Sorry I was a little mia last week- it was just one of those weeks but I fully intend on making up for it this week!
This weekend I had the privilege of attending an afternoon tea that was put on by my mom’s best friend. If you remember, I love going to tea and have been going with my mom, her best friend and her daughter since I was a little girl. Back then, I would wear my prettiest, frilliest dress (and I’m sure my mom would make me wear those horrible itchy lace tights) to afternoon tea. I always enjoyed going but being the picky eater that I was, I didn’t drink the tea nor eat the food. Luckily though days are far behind me and I enjoyed every morsel this time around.
Aren’t the tables so pretty? My mom has always loved setting the perfect table and her best friend is the same way. I love a beautifully set table and it makes enjoying afternoon tea all the more fun! As does dressing up! I count Afternoon tea as the perfect time to wear my pearls (the necklace I’m wearing below my best friend gave me on my 13th birthday) and I got this BCBG Generation dress for the event! It’s one of those dresses that I got a great deal on and I know that I’ll get a lot of wear out of… aka a great purchase!
And now onto the main event… the food! Everything was absolutely delicious but as always, I enjoyed the scones the best! She served two different types but the White Chocolate Lavender was incredible with clotted cream and jam! Oh and I had 3 different teas over the course of the afternoon- Vanilla, Coconut Cocoa and my favorite Chocolate Peppermint! All were perfect with the delicious food!
All in all it was an absolutely fabulous day and I had such a wonderful time with family and friends. I couldn’t ask for a better weekend! Sunday included a relaxing day, an amazing Church service, a dinner of roasted veggies and quinoa and a screening of one of my favorite movies– Young Victoria.
