"The Tea"

Last year was our very first annual "Tea" of what I hope to me many more to come. We had 20 tables and I hosted one. I enjoyed it so much. I invited an online friend and we got to meet for the first time. It was awesome.
Love you, Laurie and look forward to having Tea with you again this year...

I did a citric theme on my table with bight sunny colors and the first pix are of my dishes and centerpiece which consisted of tulips in a water pitcher and I placed orange, lemon and lime slices in the water to tie my colors together. Smelled nice too.

Here are some pix of my table. My table cloth was orange gingham and the napkins were yellow, lime and turquoise gingham, two of each color.

Here are shots of my guests one being Laurie in the above shot...

I had such a wonderful time last year and looking forward to the "Tea" again this year and I CAN'T WAIT to share my new colors and theme. Stay tuned...

Chocolate Peanut-butter Easter Egg

Our church does an annual fundraiser for Mother's Memorial. Chocolate Peanut-butter Easter Eggs and they are one heck of a hit in this community!
We make and sell them to fill many Easter baskets around here.
The process of making them is so much fun.
Several ladies of the church get together and we have a blast.
Here are a few pix of some we made this year...

I only sold 25 this year but went out and made my deliveries today.

And Guess who had to have one for ourselves:D
