My First Tea Party by Vonnie Davis

On Saturday, I had a delightful experience. My first tea party. I was invited by a friend who also asked twenty other friends to attend an afternoon tea at Ploughcroft Tea House. Her only requirement was to "wear a hat." 

I had no idea Lynchburg had such a lovely establishment full of antiques and beautiful tea services. A British flag hung beside the front door flanked by flowerpots full of pansies.

Some ladies wore vintage hats that were simply gorgeous. Others wore church hats (also known as 'crowns') or straw hats festooned with flowers. We had a grand time, talking and laughing. Pots of various types of tea were served: Earl Gray, Hibiscus, Tea of Heaven, Ginger Peach, and Oolong. I especially enjoyed the Ginger Peach and Oolong teas.

I'll be sure to include a tea house in one of my stories. Afternoon tea, perhaps, served in lovely flowered pots and cups just like we had.

This was our menu.

Elizabethan Tea

A freshly baked scone served with clotted cream, preserves and fruit garnish

Dainty open faced sandwiches to include;

Cucumber and butter, Egg Salad, Curried Chicken Salad and Smoked Salmon with cream cheese.

Served with an Endless pots of Tea.
