Mom's Day Tea 2008

Every year we participate in the Soroptomist Mother's Day Tea.

Not only do we enjoy a lovely afternoon tea we get to set up and decorate tables.

This was our year of whimsy - the main table featured Leo the Lion and 6 other carousel animals.

Once again we were able to cut fresh beautiful roses from Jason's house. They looked and smelled amazing - most people didn't think they were real!

We added small bouquets of fresh rosemary, star jasmine, and lavender to the chair backs.

We called our second table 'Jamaica Me Crazy'. We used Jason's tropical plates to set the mood. It was kind of busy - but it seemed to come together. The ladies who sat there loved it, especially the fun plates.

This year everyone had short hair and Mom and I were both in hats.

We have yet to win a prize for our tables, but there is always next year!
