I really hosted a formal tea party at this beautiful home in Glen Allen, VA. The furnishings were all period pieces and the wood glowed with tender care from tender hands. There were 16 ladies present for this fabulous show of a tradition from times past. We gathered in the front Parlor, which I referred to as the "Gathering Room" for Mimosas served in elegant crystal champagne glasses. The ladies toured the downstairs public rooms as well as conversing with friends. We then were seated at an elegantly dressed dining table, 8 to a side. The silver flatware, china, and crystal drink glasses were sparkling in the sun-filled room. We were individually served a plated group of tea goodies, Sweet Potato Biscuit with Sliced Ham; Chicken Salad Croissant; Berry filled Scones; Chocolate Covered Strawberries; and beverage choice of Hot Tea, Ice Tea, Water, Coffee and more Mimosas! Erin was my point person in planning this event, which was contracted on 6-30-16 and executed to perfection on Dec 8. The ladies voted to make this outing an annual event - we all live on the same street and enjoy a monthly outing for lunch ----- or TEA! BTW, This charming place is an Historic Landmark, a Bed and Breakfast, and used often for outdoor weddings, and receptions.
