Once again you haveout done yourself Debbie. I gained three pounds just reading your menu. What a beautiful tea party.Created with LOVE and it shows.: ).ReplyDelete
Sue, thank you! You are so sweet! Lots of calories, but only one day. Well, okay, maybe more than one day!Delete
Oh it was more than a 3 pound gain, I assure you because I was THERE! The food was not only a visual delight, it was a culinary triumph! The decor made each woman feel transported back to Victorian days when life was slower and simplier, and time with friends a lingering moment. One thing the pictures can't capture is the lavish love that filled Debbie's house. That can only come from a heart like hers, not from any book....ReplyDelete
Party, thank you for your very positive comments and for your incredible help in the kitchen, in our hearts, and in our tummies! It was a sweet day all around.ReplyDelete
I did it again! Typo error "Party" rather than "Patty", but it fits! Wherever you are, it's a party of some kind! ;-)Delete
