A Special Tea

We have a dear little friend named Micaela. In early December, my husband and I took her out for a special Christmas tea. I put on my best hat and we enjoyed all the dainties of the Christmas be-decked tea room. Micaela, who has SMA , is a huge anglophile and the smartest reader you would ever care to meet. She is also my little stitching buddy as I taught her to cross stitch. She keeps trying to like the taste of tea, but at 13, she has lots of time to acquire that taste. In the meantime, she loves the scones and the atmosphere! My husband was a great sport to go with us, even though the entire room was pink and he was the only male around. :)




the bill was presented in this sweet little embroidered purse




love the rosebuds on our lemon curd and cream!





Micaela looked elegant in my hat!

That is so sweet! What a fun thing to do! And I had no idea what an Anglophile was. I had to look it up! :)

Siobhan said...

What a fun time you both obviously had--DH, too! :) My SIL took my daughter to high tea in DC a few years ago. They said it was incredible. Love the hat!

What a lovely treat!

Looks like you had a great time. I must say it looks more english than England! We are more used to greasy cafes. There are one or two around like that though ;-) x

It looks like you had a lovely time!

Isn't if fun to teach kids crafts? I'm planning to teach my older 4 H kids to knit this spring. Can't wait!

Micaela has the most amazing smile! Thanks for sharing your day out. The tea room is so beautiful! And, what a stunning hat. It looks like everyone had a very nice day.

I love seeing this kind of activities. I have a son who is severely disabled and activities in the community are so limited. I've been an advocate for 20 years. May I share your post?

Say hello to Micaela from England and tell her I am a Brit who doesn't like tea! The English tea room looks delightful though and you both look great in your hat!

Lucy said...

That looks like so much fun!!!!

Teri said...

What fun! I can only imagine all the good conversation (books and cross stitch both!) and good times you all had. Thanks for sharing the pics!

You look like you all had a great time - here in the UK (at least my bit) the only hat you would see in a tea shop would be a warm woolly one.

What a great post with great pictures! Love the look of that tea room, and the purse. And your husband is a sweetie for spending some time with the girls in a distinctly girly environment. Gorgeous hat, by the way!

Dianne said...

How sweet! I just saw this. Your friend was definitely tickled by the tea room and her excellent company. Where is that lovely place? I've never been to a tea room-nudge-wink. : )
