I attended a Tea . This was a new experience for me. A wonderful time was had by all. It was in honor of the 25th Anniversary of a Mural the Senior Center had done on the wall doors between the cafeteria and the gym.
Each table was done by someone different. I had been asked if I would do one. It was fun but ended up at the last minute changing what I planned on doing as I could not find a fresh centerpiece anyplace in with blues, pinks and whites. So my table went fall rather and rather simple instead of lacy and fancy.
They served several kinds of tea, small muffins of all sorts fresh fruit with a fruit topping. and scones. Scones were something that I am sorry to say I had never had. I rather liked them too. I guess as the old saying goes "you are never to old to learn".
This is a picture of one of the tables done by one of the Volunteers. They are drivers for the Meals on Wheels program and just great people. It is taken in front of the Mural or at last a section of it.
I thought I would share a few of the decorated tables.
I loved the combination she used in table coverings. It was simple but elegant I thought.
One of the fall ones. I loved the idea and it was so simple. A beautifully fall wrapped box with miniature pumpkins and gourds, with fall berries and fall leaves scattered around and an ivy bowl filled with candy corn and flowers.
I thought this was very nice and I liked that there were two teapots to the table being it was an eight foot table. Blue and fall seemed to be the colors for the day.
I loved these cups and saucers. They had matching sugar, creamer, teapot, and bowl for your used teabags.
I will in another post share a bit about how the mural came about, and a bit of history of my town. I sure learned a lot more than I had ever heard. Even my sister-in-law learned things she did not know and she was born and raised here.
I hope that everyone is having a wonderful week, enjoying all the fall weather and colors. They are certainly changing fast.
