I loved preparing for the teas---we searched for the perfect invitations---napkins----cookies---pastries and the goody bags or gifts for our guests----
I learned a lot about teas and especially afternoon teas--which is mostly what we had-----
I think the first tea I gave was to my daughter in law Adrienne --it was a wedding shower tea---at that one--I actually brewed the tea and like custom says---I poured for everyone---making sure to add the sugar cubes and cream before the tea-----and realizing of course that in true form---cream was not to be used---only milk-----making sure to offer lemon as well-
yes I know probably more than I need to know about teas----
funny story-the teas were a place where the girls knew they could dress up as much as they liked or didn't like--but Robyn liked her attire pretty fancy---well this one year---it was one of the summer teas---an especially hot hot day-----well as Robyn opens the door to her first guests--who are dressed in sweet cool sun dresses---Robyn exclaims---"well I guess I'm overdressed!"
