I volunteered to hostess a table at our Annual Women's Tea at church. I had to provide everything to decorate the table and bring a little something to eat. It turned out so much better than I thought it would, because up until the night before I thought for sure it was gonna be a disaster! After about a month of religiously going to thrift stores looking for mismatched dishes. Thank the Lord it all came together!
What People Ate
Egg Sandwiches on Rye bread "Friendship" bread Mini cherry and blueberry pies Mini Lemon cakes filled with raspberry curd and topped with lemon buttercream
What People Drank
A large variety of different teas and ice water
Mini cakes, pies and "Friendship" bread.
Myself, and a few other women(including my mom:)) made little tea cup magnets for all the women.
Seeing my table all put together and seeing it didn't look like the disaster I thought it would be in my mind a few days before!
Dropping and breaking a cup in front of the other 30 women decorating their tables and having the entire room stop and say "Awwwwwww." I was red. I don't like being the center of attention. Especially for making a fool of myself.
Most Touching Moment
Having people admire my table and cakes and them telling me I have a "real talent". It is wonderful to hear considering for the last 28 years I was convinced I got skipped over when talents were being handed out!
