A Real Southern Tea Party....

 I mentioned during my last post that I had been out of town last weekend. I went to Kenner, LA to visit my friend, Bettye. Bettye's house got flooded during Katrina, and it took her nearly 2 years to get it back into move-in condition. Now it's very nice, and that is all behind her, and we pray everyday that nothing like that happens again.
 Every year, Bettye's church group hosts a very nice tea party. I have been wanting to attend so I finally got to do that this year.
 Her church is in a quaint neighborhood in Metairie, LA.  The Tea Captains each decorate and host a table of friends for the tea.
 We sampled 3 different kinds of teas: Earl Grey Tea served with Appetizers, Blueberry White Tea served with Tea Sandwiches, and Madagascar Vanilla Red Tea served with Pastries.
 Their theme was "Shoes", and the decorations depicted how a woman's shoes change from a baby to a grown woman.
 I made the FSL Victorian style shoes as favors for Bettye's guest.

 These are the other tables.

 I really enjoyed meeting Bettye's friends, and these ladies did a whole lot of work to have this event. There were two ladies here that are 93 years old. One of them still drives, and the other one sitting at the  end of Bettye's table just found out she has ovarian cancer. So sad, but she wanted to come to the tea as she's come every year.
 I hope you enjoyed the pictures! This was my first REAL tea party, and I learned a whole lot!
