Tea Party for Three

When Melissa and I were in college, we were convinced that if our then career aspirations did not work out, we would buy a bed and breakfast where we could host fabulous tea parties and teach young girls etiquette. After all, in the south, our lives are guided by God and Emily Post. While we do not own a B&B, yet, Melissa does have a little lady, Little M, that we can bestow all of our wisdom upon.

Tea parties are especially dear to us because we enjoyed one for both Melissa's Bachelorette weekend and her Baby Shower. And, let's be honest, we pretty much love any excuse to wear a pretty dress and pearls. Melissa and I decided it was time to take our little lady on her very first tea party. Little M was so excited! She wore a beautiful dress, pearl necklace and little white wedges. Basically, she was a whole lot of precious!

The tea house, A Corner of England, was very sweet and kindly catered to Little M. Melissa and I enjoyed yummy sandwiches, tomato soup, quiche, and a large pot of green tea. Little M enjoyed all of the chocolate, and she loved every last bite of it.

We had such a great time and I think Little M thoroughly enjoyed her first tea time. The afternoon also gave way for Melissa and I to spend time together catching up which is always a nice treat. I think we have many more tea parties in our future!
