Tea Time Thursday #10

Last Saturday evening, I got a phone call and I expected to hear my daughter Angie's voice when I answered. To my surprise, it was Angie's Chris asking if Jimmy and I would like to go to the Heathman Hotel in downtown Portland Sunday afternoon for tea! Well, of course! The Heathman is a lovely older hotel in Portland and the Tea Court is in a gorgeous room complete with a beautiful crystal chandelier.

We all had the afternoon tea tray and yummy! Everything was so good and it was a very nice offering to be enjoyed by all.

Angie and Chris surveying the tea time treats!

Chris, Angie and Jimmy...waiting to sample the goodies. They were all being silly.

This is the first full tea that Jimmy has been to. He REALLY enjoyed the calm and the time to just relax and chat. I think he understands now why I love to go to tea.

Here's the mama-to-be with a mouthful of the famous opera cake and oh, it was soooo goodd.

No fancy teapots or teacups here...Vanilla, Earl Grey and Orange Spice teas were the favorites at the table.

This is sweet Grandma Kathy, Chris' mom and Ava's grandmother. We were so glad she was able to come with us.

Here is Miss Ava in her pretty dress. Notice the missing tooth? Others are loose too! She had the Peter Rabbit Tea for children that was just perfect for little ones.

This is my tiny doll sized Peter Rabbit tea set which I love! Very detailed and charming. I love anything Peter Rabbit. Maybe next year I will decorate with my Peter Rabbit things for Easter. It just all came too early this year!

It's hard to believe that tomorrow is Good Friday already. Time to set the bunnies aside and spend a day thinking about Easter.
