First Lady Tea with some of my first ladies of tea

Barbs at First Ladies Tea at the Governor Warner Mansion

Last month, at the urging of my friend, Barb Tabb, I attended the First Lady Tea at the Governor Warner Mansion in Farmington. Barb went to the annual event last year and recommended I put this one on my calendar for 2018.

Afternoon tea catered by Kelly's Cucina

With a delicious afternoon tea catered and plated by Kelly's Cucina (we especially loved the curd and cream served up in wine glasses) and details overseen by Linda Pudlik, who started the teas at the Mansion, we knew we were in good hands

Lovely tablescape with curd and cream served in wine glasses.

After the tea was served, Joan McGlincy, presented an interesting presentation on Flo Harding, wife of Warren G. Harding, a president plagued with scandal.

As a history and tea buff, this event hit a few buttons. My daughter, Rachel, and I (two Political Science undergrads) are on a quest to visit the homes/libraries of all the presidents and with Harding's home and museum a short journey to Ohio, this was the inspiration  for a future road trip in the near future.

Barb's two sister-in-laws joined us at our tea and it was a fun and educational afternoon. We'll be looking for next year's subject with great anticipation!
