|Barb's Tea Service presenting etiquette at the Townsend|
Last Saturday, Barb's Tea Service presented a "Dining Tutorial", second in a monthly etiquette series at Birmingham's Townsend Hotel. As part of the afternoon tea, we presented a short program on proper protocol for a multi-course formal dinner.
|During the program, guests enjoy scones and savories.|
Guests were treated to spectacular afternoon tea fare: tasty scones, savory sandwiches and extraordinary mini-pastries all served up with bottomless pots of deliciously brewed tea.
|This table had one special birthday girl. Everyone asked a lot of great questions!|
There was a great turnout of absolutely wonderful guests. Two young ladies were celebrating birthdays.

In the "Dining Tutorial" we discussed the three different toasts that can take place in a formal dinner. In that spirit, we ended with a toast of our own: "To all the special ladies and gentlemen who attended this month's tea and etiquette program. Cheers to all!"

We hope you will join us for our next etiquette program at The Townsend Hotel on April 8th! We'll cover "Eating Various Foods" including, oysters, lobster, corn on the cob, shrimp and kumquats. (Don't always play it safe with grilled chicken breasts and simple cake!). For more information, see The Townsend Hotel Afternoon Tea page on The Townsend's website.
