The following weekend after filming, I gave a "Honeymoon Tea" for Caroline and Clayton. They are getting married on May 18 - less than 2 months away! I sent invitations that included a white tea sachet and asked the ladies attending to fill it with a little cash for the honeymoon. When the ladies arrived, they placed their "tea bag" in a tea pot which Caroline took home. We used my great aunt's silver service and lots of tea cups from friends and family. It was such a sweet time. I made crustless quiche and chocolate croissants. But, the best part of the menu was the blueberry scones we got from Hebrews Coffee. I have never tasted better scones! Anyway, it was a special time and an easy kind of shower both for the host and the guests - no shopping or wrapping or games! Yeehaw! If you want to see the video I sent Clayton from the tea, click here.
The teas I served were Good Earth Original Sweet and Spicy, Bigelow Plantation Mint, PG Tips and Tazo Zen Green Tea. One of the CD's I played during the tea was Kathy Troccoli's Heartsongs. My favorite song on that CD is "What a Wonderful World." In fact, Clayton and I chose that song to dance to at the reception! I look forward to that, but to be honest, I'm not the most confident dancer, so I look forward to that being over, too! (Remember...relief is my favorite emotion!) Ha! Seriously, it will be so special and I love dancing with my men, though. Actually, Phil and I are taking lessons...and that's a whole other drama I will tell you about later!
Well, that's all.
