The Proper English Tea

This month we have been celebrating the country of England. One of the special things we have done is host a proper afternoon tea. Our Chaplain, Suzanne Priddy, brought in vintage lace and crocheted table linens along with her collection of antique teacups and saucers. As the ladies entered we offered scarves and flower pins as accessories to help set the tone of the party. 

With the tables set and specialty teas ready, the residents enjoyed tea sandwiches and a variety of sweet cakes and cookies. Classical music was playing softly, while the ladies enjoyed the touch of the delicate cups as well as the special atmosphere.

This event went so well they are asking for another tea in December! We look forward to many more “Proper Afternoon Teas!”
