Our Dear Mothers
We honored our amazing Mothers, and those ladies who are like mothers to us, with our annual Mother and Daughter Tea on Saturday, May 11. Mothers, daughters, godmothers, aunts, nieces, granddaughters and special friends gathered to celebrate. The oooohs and aaaaahs could be heard all around the room as the ladies took their seats. They were delighted to see the gorgeous centerpieces (donated by the Garden Club of Inverness) and the beautifully decorated tables with our eclectic collection of teapots, teacups and saucers.
There are many favorites among our varied collections including the Kitty teapot and the Santa teapot, along with the delicate china, hand painted and colorful ceramic teapots. Each table had a unique teapot and each place setting a delicate unique cup and saucer. To make everyone feel extra special, an anonymous friend, had corsages delivered from a local florist to give to each of the ladies.
In addition to their choice of the many varieties of tea (or soft drinks if they preferred), the ladies enjoyed a variety of scrumptious finger desserts. In the corner of the room a chair was placed under a decorated arbor that was a perfect place for a remembrance photo.
Although we like to think that we treat our ladies special every day, it was nice to formally recognize their ‘specialness’ today.
