Mistress Sage and Mistress Piper taking Afternoon tea.
May 7, 2006 ~~ An Afternoon Tea was served yesterday. Daddy and even guh guh Jack attended.
The dainty social began when a Mandarin Orange tea was served along with dainty finger sandwich's, cheese, water crackers, and a creamy strawberry dessert all of which Mistress Sage assisted in preparing -- since it was her tea. The table was set with a fine antique linen tablecloth and napkin set from China (guess it's almost an antique since it was mine when I was young and we lived in the Philippines). The delicate morsels were served on the finest china from Japan (also from our years of living in Asia) and a lovely spray of baby blossom and a lilac scented candle graced the center of the table.
Young Mistress Sage and Mistress Piper were dressed in their finest and Mistress Sage was a most gracious hostess.
Hey, she took this very very seriously. It was truly the event of the year. Well, maybe the week.... at least for Sage as you can tell from the picture that Piper was only there for the snacks.... notice the enormous tea bag in her teeny tiny tea cup....
