Celebrating Friendship with Afternoon Tea in California

We enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea at the home of Martha,
a long-time tea friend.
She obviously put a tremendous amount of thought and planning
 into the tea and our special visit with her.
From Martha's hospitality, to the tea selections and menu
(including gluten free for me)
everything was perfect!
Thank you, Martha! 

Martha's afternoon tea was the highlight of our trip to California.

What an amazingly fantastic gourmet Afternoon Tea! Delightful! I have studied the menus and the pictures... and what a fabulous 'one-of-a-kind' treat you experienced. Kudos to Martha!

What a perfectly wonderful Tea Party! I cannot imagine such a lovely repast---every single item and flower and moment seem a work of art. The little sandwiches could have been served in a jewel-box.

I've always loved Martha---I KNOW had I been there, I'd have snuck away between scones and savories for a moment, and just stood, soaking in the grandeur of her perfume bottles---I covet those every time she shows them.

So glad you had such a splendid visit.

Oh! My Goodness! What a FABULOUS, personalized tea party - but I wouldn't expect anything less from Martha. She's one of a kind! I can see why it was the highlight of your time spent in California. Thank you for sharing it with us.

I am always impressed by Martha's attention to detail when putting a tea party together. It is just gorgeous to look at and I know was delicious, even including the finger limes. What a treat. A memory to treasure and a highlight for sure!
