An Old Fashioned Tea Party
The air was filled with soft giggles and wispering from the young girls, as their mothers sat and conversed in low tones. Freshly curled ringlets bobbed up and down as the girls flounced in their beautiful "fancy dress up dresses", alternately twirling and then gracefully lounging on the chairs, nibbling on the tiny muffins and other delicacies.
After formal portraits, Lady T announced that tea was to be served, and welcomed the ladies to their seats. As they ate the gourmet sandwiches and sipped tea from Lady T's grandmother's tea cups, each mother read aloud proper etiquette of women from the 1800's. They then discussed each valued character and corresponding Bible verses, and how these applied in today's world. As I packed up my equipment, the gentle voices drifted throughout the room, speaking a melody of praise to our Lord.
Thank you, Christina, for the honor of documenting your lovely tea party. I had a wonderful time!
