Every other month, a group of friends that met through water aerobics, gets together for a lunch to celebrate birthdays, and friendship.
We started this for my birthday, after my beloved hubby passed away. My friends were so thoughtful to do this. We used to get together at restaurants, but then we decided that we could talk and visit better at peoples' houses. Some people do not do water aerobics any more, but they are still included.
My theme was of course a Tea Party! I bought flowers from Trader Joe's and fixed them inside some pretty teapots. We always use paper products for ease in clean up, but I used my pretty teacups, and put out so many choices of teabags and tea pyramids for the ladies to choose.
There were 19 ladies in all and I set up three tables. I have to admit that I really enjoy the hospitality part and setting things up.
Here's the last table and I used my late Aunt Kitty's cut work tablecloth for this one.
Everyone brings something to share. I made the mini dirt cakes for my offering. We had mini chicken salad croissants, pimento cheese tea sandwiches, egg rolls, cheese and crackers, hummus and pita chips, veggie pizza squares, veggies and dip, shrimp and cocktail sauce, and more desserts. One lady brought homemade macarons. We have ladies from that are from Viet Nam, Italy, and Columbia.
Our one friend in the front right has recently completed chemo, and we were glad that she came.
Here's another group of ladies....
.... and another group. We sing to the birthday girls and we always say a prayer before we begin our lunch. I think everyone enjoyed themselves, and some stayed and visited on my patio by my waterfall.
I'm ending with this picture of Hayden that my daughter-in-law, Kristen sent to me. Hayden, if you remember has very curly hair. She got a haircut and a style, and Kristen said that she looked like a mini me. I have to agree! Lol!!
Thank you for your visit! xo
