Happy May Everyone!
What a great way to start the month, our weather has cooled down drastically from hot temperatures in the 80s and even 90 degrees last week, to this week down to pleasant 60s and 70s. This was a welcome cool-down for me and my friends as we were hosting a big Spring Tea in the Garden this past Monday, as you can imagine it’s not much fun sitting outside in the scorching heat sipping hot tea. Lucky for us Mother Nature gifted us with the most perfect day ever on Monday! Temperatures were in the mild 70s and the garden burst into bloom from the heat wave we had earlier, all this made our Monday a gorgeous backdrop for our Spring Tea in the Garden.
What’s to say about a tea party? It’s a party with tea 😊, lots of it. With lots of sweet desserts, delectable lunch AND a group of girlfriends getting together to celebrate the beauty of spring. Honestly there is not much else to add. Why don’t I let the pictures do the talking? Here is a look at our Spring Tea in the Garden luncheon hosted by my friends Rose, Joji, Rita and myself. Fair warning! This post is long with lots of pictures of lovely ladies, mouthwatering food, and lots of COLOR! Enjoy!
