Tea Time Thursday # 19 ~ Ann's Birthday!

Last Saturday, it was time to head on back up to Myrtle's Tea House to celebrate another friend's birthday! Ann has a summer birthday, so we get to enjoy the tea house when the weather is beautiful.
Our Ann has been working so hard and guess what? I think she's really going to retire soon! It's time Ann. Doesn't she look happy here?

Natalie is our party planner and she started working on Ann's celebration weeks ago. It's just hard to get everyone together...busy, busy, busy!

We dined on the delightful Summer Solstice tea offering. So fun and light and delicious!!! I had the veggie white cheddar soup and oh it was so yummy. Can you see the dragonfly sandwich?

We even had a little butterfly muffin along with fresh seasonal fruit...always a treat with local berries at this time of the year.

Elizabeth is the owner and she brought Ann out a very special little birthday cake. It was just too good! The pink icing was to die for!  Elizabeth is a doll and always makes us feel so welcome. Thank you for all your hard work. It's quite a labor of love to run a tea shoppe.

The we had our dessert plate and I do believe the strawberry was my favorite goodie.

Natalie is next to Ann...she's the party planner. So faithful to make sure we all have birthday parties-tea parties of course! Ginny is Ann's long time friend too.

This is Joan with Ann. Dear Joan has been battling cancer for some time now. She was having a good day and was so happy that she was able to attend. It's so hard for her to get out. We all thought she looked terrific and were so happy to have her at the tea party. Our prayers are with you Joan.

Present time! Lots of lovelies for a lovely person!

I love this picture! Happy Birthday dear friend.  I hope this will be a great year for you and that you can finally retire!

I hope you enjoyed my Tea Time Thursday story this week. I just love to go to tea with friends. It is just wonderful.

I'm busy putting my studio together this week inbetween seeing friends, helping dad and attending a funeral. Ah...the circle of life.

What a lovely time. Glad the lady was feeling well enough to go as that was nice for her!

That looked like a great time, Linda. You all look so happy and like you were having fun.

There's nothing like getting together with good friends.

I'm sorry your friend is battling cancer. That is very, very difficult.
God bless her and help her.

Thanks for sharing your happy afternoon and Happy (late) Birthday to Ann. Susan

The tea looks nice but what is even nicer is spending time with friends and forgetting troubles for an hour or so. What a great day! We do not have any places nearby that serve afternoon tea so we have to plan, make reservations and drive a bit. I hope to take my daughter to a fun place for tea this summer: I discovered one that serves a modern version (not Victorian) and it is a pleasant change. They bring wonderful loose leaf tea to the table and steep it while you watch, all the while keeping an eye on the timer. HAPPY and safe 4th of July to you and yours. HUGS
