Tea Party

A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to win a tea party giveaway, from one of my favorite blogs. This site is chock full of all kinds of gardening tips and helpful advice. 

Funny thing is, Esther was also my Home-Ec teacher in high school and I can remember learning lots of good things from her.

If you ever get the chance to have enjoy her garden...go for it!  Her backyard is beautiful and so peaceful.  You can tell that flowers are her passion, not to mention all of the fun little goodies she finds here and there!

Esther had just finished hosting a twilight tour and had had ots and lots of strangers and friends milling about her gardens.  When she hosted the giveaway party, the gardens were in tip-top shape.  We got to enjoy the surroundings of her hard work.  Like the cozy gazebo.  Seriously, it looked so dreamy and romantic and were it not for the fact that I would be scared of breaking the old fragile antique bed, I would've laid down for a short snooze!

The company was fun too.  They were all ladies I kinda knew but a few I hadn't spent time with in a long time. 

We had an enjoyable evening chatting and discussing all kinds of things... and eating...oh yes eating!

Esther not only has a knack for gardening but also cooking.  She served a simple, yummy, elegant feast.  My favorite was the dessert (of couse).  I so wish desserts were as healthy as veggies!   A scoop of moose tracks ice cream over a chewy chocolate cookie, and topped with hot fudge sauce.  Oh my but it was so so good.

Perfect way to spend a summer evening!  Thanks Esther!
