Springtime means tea party celebrations. In 2010, the theme of the spring tea I coordinated for the ladies of my church was aprons.

Shannon [below] modeled her deceased Grandmother's apron.
Every apron has a story to tell, so I read the stories.
I saved the best 'til the last -- the dear lady in the photo below is an eighty-something, retired minister's wife, and she's holding her mother's apron. She didn't know when she was sharing memories of the apron that I was going to surprise her shortly thereafter by honoring her at the tea party.
Don't you just love surprises?
There were lots of tributes and a new hankie apron. It was the perfect ending to an apron themed tea party!
If you've had an apron-themed tea party, I'd love to hear about it.
