We finally had our Diamond Jubilee celebration this week, in the form of a tea party.
I dressed the part, in an outfit I happened to find last weekend at Salvation Army!
Christina brought over all her roses and made magnificent arrangements for the party.
Here are all the fabulous tea cozies!
Some of the yummy treats........
Chocolate cake was a must, complete with bunting!
The table looked so pretty with all the china and glassware.
I managed to find a picture of the Queen.
Christina brought over her Union Jack pillow.
And I pulled out the pillow cover I had found years ago in Scotland for probably less than a dollar. It took me months to figure out that the pillow was for George VI's coronation in 1937. The four countries of the UK are present with their flower.
The punch table greeted guests as they came in the door.
More of Christina's lovely flower arranging!
I just love my tea trolley!!! I'm so thankful to have it!
The bunting made everything look festive.
Christina made her fascinator. She also spent two days helping me get ready.
This is my favorite picture of all!!! I love it that everyone was in red, white or blue and look at all the hats!!!!!!!
Having people around the table is one of my biggest passions.
We spent the time visiting and chatting all about the Queen -- everyone brought a few facts to share.
Everyone also brought a box or bag of tea and at the end we went around the table and each person chose a package.
Check out these lovely tea tins!!!!
It was a delightful afternoon and we are all looking forward to the Queen continuing her long reign!
