As lovely as the invitation was, it just kept getting better. She had a place card (die cut) and menu at each table, and there were three courses.
Here’s the scene that greeting us when we arrived.
The table was beautiful. We found out the vase for the flowers once held a dozen roses – given to Aretha by her husband on their first date.
The first course was Savories, served with a green tea. She had delicious little sandwiches, deviled eggs and chicken salad phyllo cups.
The second course was country scones and cranberry bread. It looks like we had already hit this tray pretty hard! The tea was Ginger Peach (Yum!).
And the final course was sweets – cheese cake, brownie bites, lemon squares and Raspberry & Cream Cafe’ bites with a Lady Gray tea. *sigh* It was heavenly.
So thanks, Aretha, for a beautiful afternoon with such gracious company!
