Afternoon Tea

I hosted a Relief Society afternoon tea party at my house recently. It was really fun to dress up, wear hats and pretend to be ladies. It was insanely hot though and we were doing everything possible to keep shaded. I threw presentation out the window when I hung sheets off my gazebo. I thought they would rather be cool.

I forgot to take a picture of our table--we had a sweet pineapple punch, iced mint tea, scones with clotted cream and lemon curd, berries with fresh whipped cream and a variety of finger sandwiches. I am all about the food. Love it. Elise picked out one of her dresses and joined the ladies. She loved being out there with us.
