Third Annual Ladies' Spring Tea - Aprons

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.


  1. Our church held an apron-themed tea party several years ago. I blogged about it at the time. It was great fun and easy to decorate for.
    Your event looks and sounds delightful!

  2. I have never participated in an apron themed tea party but it sounds like a great idea!

  3. I've never been to an apron-themed tea either, but I find the idea absolutely charming! I LOVE hearing how the women's various memories were shared. I'll bet this was a memorable event for the ladies lucky enough to attend!

  4. We had a apron-themed luncheon for the ladies at our church a couple of years ago - and I used that same clip-art on the tickets and programs!

  5. What a cute tea! Love that cake too!
