Last week my friend Diane and I celebrated our December birthdays by having tea at our local tea room. We had a blast!! Since I don’t have official outfit photos for the Modest Monday post, I thought I’d combine these two in one post. The lovely English owner of The Tea Trolley took some photos of us, and I wore a new dress and jewelry! Coincidentally, I wore this new necklace for the first time on my actual birthday a couple of weeks earlier. :>
She gave me a teapot with shamrocks…perfect!!
My sweet friend Diane:
The Queen’s Tea:
Our super yummy tiny sweets:
Delectable scones! Very similar to my friend Laviece’s at J. Henry Manor, and hers were my favorite! I even like them better than my own. :> I miss her tea room.
I had the apricot tea. Mmmmm. Ironically, it was also Laviece who helped me to learn to like flavored tea. I was strictly an Irish or English black tea girl, until…she introduced me to French Caramel Creme Brule’ black tea. It’s like a dessert, and I don’t even use sugar in my tea. :>
I had the tomato, cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches:
Even a pretty water goblet for me, the choking girl!
And here we are:
A closer view of my dress and necklace:
I always notice the flowers:
The queen sends us off with her queenly wave!
We had a lovely time celebrating our birthdays, the food was fabulous and everything was so pretty! I can’t wait to go back here!
