Neighborhood Tea Party

Recently I received an invitation from a neighbor inviting me to a tea party to be held in her home. The tea party was yesterday.  This is the second one she's hosted - the first was in 2013 which I blogged about here.

Eight ladies attended - one was camera shy so she took the picture.  The lady second from the right back row was the hostess.  Five of us are original owners and have lived in our homes for 40 years.  Sadly, four of the ladies pictured have become widowed in recent years.

Donna converted her living room to a formal dining room and the family room became the living room.  The finished basement is their family room.

We chatted for a while in the living room, before moving to the dining room for the tea party.  The lady at the end didn't wish to be photographed, hence her being faceless.

We had several tea selections to choose from.  I chose Twinings Mixed Berry Black Tea.  

My sweet next door neighbor, Lorraine.

Chicken Salad Croissant, Cucumber Round, and Roast Beef & Horseradish on Wheat Triangles.  Unfortunately, I didn't take pictures of the other foods.  There were Scones with Strawberry Jam and mock Devonshire Cream, Fresh Strawberries, Lemon Wafer Cookies, and Chocolate Cupcakes.

After we ate, we went back into the living room where there was a drawing for a prize.  It was a lovely way to spend the afternoon.  Thanks, Donna!


  1. What fun! And what a lovely table she set.

  2. How nice to have neighbors get together. It looks like a good time was had by all.

  3. Sounds like a lovely tea time afternoon.

  4. What a lovely way for neighbours to get together; a tea! Sounds like a splendid time you all had. I had to giggle when you said one lady was camera shy so she took the picture. That would be me too. Have a wonderful weekend, Phyllis.
