Women's tea ~

~You will be a Crown of Beauty in the hand of the Lord~ Is 62:3

Last October we had our first women's tea. It was lovely in many ways- everyone showed up in their spring dresses ~ 80 wonderful ladies were in attendance.
In order to keep cost down we baked everything ourselves ~

Ooh~there were buttery scones, precious tea cakes with pink icing, savories, delicate cucumber tea sandwiches dipped in dill , many dainty delightful treats to warm your heart. We had fresh brewed tea and coffee served in china teapots (by our youth girls who were fabulous!). We made all the gift give aways (lovely vintage tags).

On every table placed so perfect where darling tea cups (which i have collected over the years) along with lovely dessert plates of many different dreamy patterns all mixy~match-some chipped (loved that most~). I had bought up every little crystal dish I could find at all the local OP shops- some with little tiny feet so sweet they danced delightfully upon each table with the strawberry jam and cream so plumply placed in them!

We skirted tables with every tablecloth we could find (which I loved)....they all came from someones linen closet with a bit of history perhaps a grandmothers, an aunties a wedding gift & then some from other countries~ all in whites and creams~ flowers were picked fresh from gardens, we had an amazing amount of roses fragrantly it filled the air with the aroma of heaven!

I ordered precious little tags with our scripture on them that sat a top every plate~ they added that final touch each adorned with German glass glitter from their maker ~ you can get them from a friend of mine online from her sweet shop under the paper category~ the costs are so inexpensive.... there are so many to choose from! I'm sure you can custom order by looking through her tags and have scripture added to yours~
You can hear the message online by going to our website at Calvary Wellington NZ under women's events~
