In my family, the females are far outnumbered by the menfolk, so it was special get together with just the girls.
The most popular guest was the newborn son of my sister-in-law - even if though he did break the all-girl attendance. Our girlie got some practice in being a big sister.
I'm not an experienced tea party hostess but I picked the brain of my talented friend, Regina, and drafted help from my sisters. My children had fun setting the table. Fall is such a fun time to decorate.
My mom is on the right with her sisters.
My sister made Michelle's wonderful pomegranate pear salad.
We had roasted red pepper soup and garden chowder.
I didn't get a picture of the sandwiches - croissant and foccacia bread with turkey, provolone, and apple slices.
Dessert was a choice of gingersnaps, apple torte, and chocolate coconut bars.
Thanks, mom, for giving us an excuse to enjoy good company and tea.
