That little tea party fundraiser I've been working on is THREE WEEKS from now...well, from this past Saturday really. So, less than three weeks. Time to truly freak out! There is still so much To Do. Which is why I haven't been here much at all lately. But I wanted to stop in and tell you about our upcoming menu because it is going to be Really Delicious. And I'll probably share some recipes with you afterwards...so stay tuned. =)

Doesn't all of that sound just marvelous?? I'm telling you, our committee tested some wonderful food this year and we couldn't serve all of it at once, so, fortunately, we've got some waiting in the wings for later tea parties. I love when that happens. =)
We also have some wonderful activities planned...I'm so looking forward to seeing everyone's paper roses and embroidery projects! The little girls will also have a lovely time making paper dolls and playing dress-up. And of course, I predict that everyone will ooh and aahhh over our fun merchandise in the Tea Boutique. =) Adorable handmade tea cozies, colorful teapots, sweet miniature tea sets, beautiful crystal teapot jewelry, intriguing Teashop Mystery novels...I've already been shopping...I'll admit it. ;)
