Tea Party at the Victorian Parlor

Sweeti and I attended the tea party hosted by the Victorian Parlor. What a lovely day! Earlier, there were many decisions to be made - which hat, gloves, cameo, and so on...Once we arrived, we decided we would have tea on the back porch - the air smelled so sweet and the birds were singing as if they were attending the party too. The weather was perfect - warm and sunny! 
A beautiful bouquet of flowers graced the table...

A menu designed for my diet - how thoughtful!

Fresh veggies - celery, carrots and broccoli
Tuna (with lite mayo) and deviled ham sandwiches on whole wheat bread
Plain tuna for Sweeti
Red potato salad
Strawberries
Paris tea (from Harney & Sons) 

The pink flowered vintage teapot was just right!
Sweeti made herself comfortable on a white wicker chair and began nibbling on tuna...

Now it's my turn!
And what better way to spend the afternoon feasting at a lovely tea party?
Thanks Victorian Parlor for hosting this beautiful event! Sweeti and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

How absolutely lovely having tea on the porch. My Miss Gracie wishes Sweeti could have attended our tea party, too. Oh, what a time they would have had! Your setting is just beautiful.
