Impromptu Tea Party!

What happens when a friend from your hometown in another state comes to visit? An impromptu Tea Party! Instead of going to a restaurant for lunch, or to the beach to eat on the picnic table (since it is still hot and steamy here in FL) we decided to throw caution to the wind and have a small tea party for two at our house!

My friend, Barbara came here to FL 

from our hometown, Huntsville, AL

I haven't seen her in two years, but we stay in touch on FB.

I set the table for two, using my Old Country Roses china

 I made some cucumber sandwiches and a few other things.

Egg salad sandwiches, assortment of tea breads, lemon curd pastries, and peach hot tea.

Ta da! Tea is served!

We spent the entire afternoon chatting and looking at photo albums of our neighborhood and the school we both attended. How can you tell a real friend who loves you? She enjoys looking at your photo albums! True! Some people can't be bothered!

See those big smiles!

Lots of memories from days past! Many days, years!

Truth be known - we are old cheerleaders! You know we never stop cheering you on!
But, she is three years younger than I am!
Her story is that when I was a cheerleader, she always
watched me very closely and wanted to do what I was doing!
Then, three years later, after I graduated, she followed in my footsteps,
became a cheerleader just like me (three years, etc!)
She lived in the same neighborhood I did and I knew her sisters, but we didn't actually meet again until she came to FL a few years ago to visit her brother, and we renewed our friendship then. Every time she comes to visit her brother, we have to get together! We have a lot in common - kindred friendships!

Can't wait till next time!

What a precious post! I love seeing old friend reunite. And who wouldn't with that spread and your beautiful country rose china! I was a cheerleader too. For 5 years straight! Bet we know a few of the same cheers. LOL! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

I love tea parties! Your table looks so beautiful and your food delicious. I love lemon curd. So happy Barbara could join you again. She is special and it is obvious your friendship is special.
