A wonderful birthday!

What a wonderful birthday I had today! I attended the tea party at the neighborhood Women's Club. The food was delicious, and it was all very enjoyable!

We took our own tea cup and I chose this black and yellow rose tea cup to compliment my outfit.

Some of the decorations near the dining room.

The best surprise was that I won "Most Elegant" in the hat contest! Below I'm with the other winner and the judges.
The other winner was "Most Clever" below:
The prizes were great - we each won a $25 gift certificate to Shakespeare's Tea Room here in town!

Here's the clubhouse where the tea party was held:

My husband was so happy to see me wear the dress he bought me! He took lots of pictures!

It was indeed a wonderful birthday!!

Katherine!! You are an absolute knockout in that dress, you should certainly where it more often. WOW! Hot and elegant all at the same time, you go girl! I love the hat, and the yellow and black teacup you took along. Joe took some really nice photos, I like the poses, and mirror shots are always nice. Congrats on the win, and Happy Birthday!

Katherine, You look so beautiful. I'm glad you won the hat contest. I wanted to stop by today and wish you a Happy Birthday. You told me on your blog that yours was the 19th and I'm sorry I'm late. I haven't been posting on blogs too much lately because of this huge house project that I'm using my spare time for...I just wanted to let you know that i'm thinking of you! xorachel
