Tea parties have become something of a tradition for the Wolfe women usually happening in the fall. The first one was a celebration of my birthday and it was so much fun it has become a tradition. With my sister in town from Atlanta with her 4 girls we felt we needed to share our tradition with her and her girls. I said I would host.
Normally the end of July is pretty hot and deciding to do an outdoor tea party can be risky. It was sunny and cool the day I decided to do it but I was definitely re-thinking as I was planning it in 90+ degree heat one day. In the end the weather was perfect. The corner of my yard near the swing set is in the shade most of the afternoon and so I set up tables there. I set out fans for everyone should they get hot but we had a perfect breeze the whole afternoon which both kept us cool and kept the bugs away. I could not have ordered more perfect weather.
So there we were amidst the weeds
(the oldest and youngest of the little girls)
It was a lovely afternoon tea in the garden with the wonderful women of my family.
Turns out a beautiful garden tea party is not the result of a beautiful garden but a beautiful group of women coming together to share life
and have a little fun.
With 3 other bloggers in the group all with their own cameras I hope to add links here, here and here as they post their own impressions of the party. hint, hint, hint.
