|An Elegant Affair of Roses and Royalty, even the napkins were beautiful|
|Kirsten Haglund, Miss America, 2008 starts the event with a song|
I sat at a table assembled by another tea specialist and fellow blogger, Phyllis Barkey. As someone who loves a tablescape almost as much as the food, I found this event scored high on both accounts. Starting with the rose-shaped napkins on each place setting and the fresh flowers on every table, accompanied by a multi-course, scrumptious lunch, it truly lived up to an “elegant affair”. Perhaps, Kirsten was the official “royal”, but we all felt like members of the court that afternoon.
|Linda Pudlik speaks to guests about tea and the Haglund family|
Afternoon tea hats off to Linda for putting together such a lovely event and to Phyllis for extending the invite to be at her table. Great people and a great cause, too – I think that pretty much captures the American spirit!
|Ending on a high note: chocolate biscuit cake!|
