A Tea Worth the Trip

 
I couldn't let another day pass without telling you about a special tea party coming up in a few weeks.
 
 
A Victorian Tea Party
A unique event for daughters, mothers, grandmothers and friends
Hosted by the ladies of the FHU Associates
 
Saturday, May 4, 2013, 12-4 p.m.
 
At the historic Hardeman House
307 White Avenue, Henderson, Tenn.
 
 
 
 
 
 
A Little Loveliness is one of the sponsors of the Victorian tea party, a much-anticipated event at Freed-Hardeman University in Henderson, Tenn. Photos in this post have been used with permission from the FHU Associates.
 
 



 
The tea party draws guests from far and wide, including many families who enjoy sharing this special afternoon that brings generations together for a day of celebration.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Little girls are welcomed to the tea party. Lawn games are perfect for enjoying the spring weather, while indoors Victorian crafts and activities await.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Who is ready to play before sitting down to tea?
 
 



 
My friend Kristen is one of the organizers of the event, and she is passionate about all things tea. She and other FHU associates invest countless hours into preparing a perfect menu for the festivities. Read more about past teas on Kristen's blog, Pretty Sweet.
 
 




My friend Becky, far right, looks forward to sharing the day with her mother and daughter. Becky blogs at Blessings for Bible Class Teachers, a very helpful site with craft, snack and lesson ideas for teachers. This is such a sweet family!
 
 
 


A tea party held on the grounds of a historic home with delicious food, memorable activities and good company in a beautiful setting -- that's worth a smile!
 
 
 
 
 

Just look at these angel faces. I am eager to take Mary Ashley and Emma to Henderson for this special event. I know they would love it!
 
 




 
The tea party raises scholarship money for Freed-Hardeman, and the Tea Boutique offers a fun way to support the school's efforts. With jewelry, tea wares and signature loose teas, there are plenty of tempting treats to choose from.







Doesn't this look like the perfect spring day? I hope you will consider attending the party -- definitely a cup of tea worth the trip.
 
In celebration of the upcoming event, I am giving away a copy of A Teatime Treasury, a collection of favorite recipes published last year for the 10th annual Victorian Tea Party. Leave a comment below for each entry you choose, and I will announce the winner soon.
