…..filled with so much love and the joy of friendship. A ‘Thank You’ tea given by dear Amy, to celebrate everyone who treated me on my birthday that turned out to be a true celebration of love and friendship. We were greeted by celestial music from Karina Ward, harpist extraordinaire! Oh my……how exquisitely lovely!
Nikka can you believe this? I can’t…..It’s just too wondrous!!!
Nikka’s beautiful dress that she got for the occasion. How perfect! So very girlie and lovely for a tea party!!!
I want you to know that besides creating the beautiful floral arrangements, Amy made every delicacy you see…….
……except for the macaroons…..The ‘savory bites’ in the front of this photo were sooooo good I had three!
I was told this was my ‘special’ cup!
Here are the ‘savory bites’ again….
The sandwiches on the tiered tray were amazing. Amy had cut out little bread hearts that went in the center of each bread slice….Wish I had a better photo to show you.
The glasses with the berries were for water and the ice cubes had blueberries frozen inside…imagine!
Eileen was ready for a proper ‘tea’ with her English Garden Hat!
Awwwww……so happy! Sandie Girl, Miss Judith and Lizzie!
Lets hear it for the tea! Flowering tea buds open when placed in hot water. Jasmine was my favorite.
Amy even made a delicious Trifle…..
Lisa and Amy are entranced listening to Karina’s sublime harp playing.
At this point, Lisa got sooooo inspired she danced!
Beautiful flowers were everywhere. The peonies were extraordinary!
When guests were leaving, Amy presented each with a charming ceramic teapot filled with beautiful flowers.
How did I not get a good photo of dear Lynne Sims???
Here’s Eileen’s Strawberry Teapot! Perfect for her!!!
The inside of each Peony was dancing with delight!
Can you imagine???….Amy had a customer coming over that afternoon to pick up a large order. How she did everything is beyond me.
Precious Amy and her handsome progeny…Andranik and Marianna with puppy Mia!
Just think, I’ve gotten to enjoy these beautiful flowers all week! A heavenly garden in my home!!! Amy you created an afternoon I shall never forget…One that will linger in my heart forever! Words are simply inadequate to thank you.
Listening to ‘Venus Arising’…..the inspiring CD Karina gave me. You can order it on her website: www.karinaharpist.com or www.harpbykarina.com
I wish you a world filled with beauty!
