Last Saturday [September 24] was the first ladies' tea in our new church. It was titled 'Homecoming.'
Since the church kitchen isn't equipped with all the necessities yet, I contacted tea caterer, Vicky O'Neil of Victoria's Tea Salon, who supplied everything from linens, to all the tableware [dishes, teacups, teapots, silverware, water goblets, and tiered servers] and a wonderful array of delicious tea foods. I can't praise Vicky enough. If you are a local reader contemplating a tea party and are in need of a caterer, give Vicky a call [734-968-7338] or visit her website victoriasteasalon.com.
The wonderful set-up [and tear-down] crew set up all the tables and chairs on Friday afternoon, and my hubby and I arrived at the church at 9:30 a.m. Saturday morning to put the wheels in motion for the 12:30 arrival of guests. My girlfriend, Lori, came to help, along with Vicky and her two helpers. 50 guests were on the reservation list, but the actual attendance was 46.
