My 70th Birthday Marathon ~ The Ladies Who Shared The Tea

The Tea (1)This is who I saw when I arrived at A Tea Affair on Monday, February 17 – our daughters, daughters-in-law, granddaughters and Mary Ellen a friend from Maine.

Well, it was not exactly like that, as the above one was a posed one after we all settled in.

The Tea (2)It looked more like this – with tall flowers on the table.

The Tea (3a)

The Tea (4)Because we had trouble seeing each other, we moved the flowers to the window seats behind us.

The Tea (4a)I understand that this tea was organized by our daughters-in-law, Chris…

The Tea (7)…and Kristen.

Kristen is the one who made the clues I received during the days previous to the tea.

The Tea (8)Assisted slightly by our daughters Diane and Deb.

Thank you!

It was a wonderful, delightful time.

The Tea (9)Mary Ellen offered to take a picture that included me and each of “my” girls.

The Tea (10)I included a few fun photos that Deb and I took during the tea.

Though our tea came with dessert, the house added a special birthday treat for everyone because of Abby’s and my birthdays.

The day was actually Abby’s birthday. You may remember (or not) that mine was actually a week earlier. 🙂

The Tea (30)I love delicious, petite desserts.

The Tea (27)So ends my 70th Birthday Marathon. (You must be giving a sigh of relief.)

Now it is time to get back to a more normal life. Well, it wasn’t quite normal for the next day and a half because our Maine family was here until Wednesday morning.
