Tea at Pauline's



Today the tea group met at Pauline's house. The newly married Pauline had recently moved and she wanted us all to see her new space.



She served chicken salad with curry sandwiches.



Also on the menu, mushroom, shrimp, and fruit something sandwiches. I sampled all four sandwiches and they were all delicious!

We also had scones wiht creme fraiche, apricot jam, and lemon curd.



The tea was of course delicious. Pauline used her Susam Branch teapot. It was so cute with quotes printed all over it.



Her home has crystal doorknobs. Love it!



Lots of charm all over the apartment.



Just look at that built in china cabinet! Gorgeous!



Pauline's cat Whisper has adjusted to the move and took up residence on the guest room bed.




We had a spoon swap. Everyone who wanted to participate brought a gift wrapped spoon. This was my contribution.



And I went home with this lovely 1890's spoon from Lori Lee.



For dessert, we had brownies, cupcakes, and lemon squares. The cupcakes were from a bakery called Cake.



We also had pound cake with strawberry sauce. Yum!



As always, we had a group shot taken. We like to have a record of each tea.


As we were leaving, Pauline presented each guest with a candle as a favor. We had a lovely afternoon with good food and conversation in an intimate setting. It was a perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

How nice! It looks like you have a great group of friends who have a lot in common. The food looked delicious and I love the spoon swap idea!~Hugs, Patti
Pauline's lunch is going to be a tough one to beat! What a great time! She put a lot of detail into everything. It's no wonder Whisper is so content. The house has such a feeling of serenity.

I love all your tea parties!

Oh I just love the idea of a tea group. Tea is one of my favorite rituals and you and your friends just make it look like so much fun. All the little touches and details were beautiful and what a sweet idea the spoon exchange was. We should all take the time to entertain in our homes like this.
