We got to pick our own tea cups from a table full of beautiful vintage china. Mine had primroses and gold edging.
And, oh, the food! Several kinds of scones with different spread-ables, little appetizers (I ate open-faced cucumber sandwiches, as everything else had meat), and a dessert course.
It was a super relaxing way to spend an rainy afternoon with my mom, and it was for a good cause! (And we followed it up with a successful trip to the thrift store, so, all in all, a pretty good day!)
