Tea Party Time
I went to a bridal shower in New Jersey today for a friend from college. Per the invitation, I knew that the shower was being held at a tea room so essentially, I was walking into a tea party for grown-ups. I fretted for days about what to wear; I am totally unprepared wardrobe-wise for an event like this.
But even though I showed up in a regular dress and black cardigan, sans a fascinator, it was a real experience to sip fancy tea and eat scones all afternoon. I don't like cucumber sandwiches but I sure do love jam and clotted cream. And this was the first time that someone used my married name, although I haven't officially dropped my maiden name yet. (I might hyphenate--any thoughts?) I even won a bottle of wine in a raffle, although to be fair, every attendee won something.
Joyous celebrations always make rainy days better. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Here's hoping for a great week ahead. xo
