Ladies high tea

There's nothing I enjoy more than catching up with my favourite girl friends over pretty pastries and afternoon tea. My friends and I recently went to do just that at the glorious QVB tearoom. Colonial and dignified, the place makes me want to sit up straight, have grown up conversations and sip my tea like a lady.

AWWW! My mom and sisters and I went to a tea house about a year ago, it was $10 a person and they gave us all kinds of treats and tea! The place was haunted too! That makes it even cooler!

I'm pretty sure I own those dishes. I inherited them from my grandmother and have only pulled them out once to see all the complete set! Looks pretty with all the cute desserts on them! I plan on getting a hutch to display them when I move into a bigger place!

Trishie, this is definitely the way to go. I'm going to have to figure out if they do anything like this near me...If they don't, I just may throw a high tea party myself.
