I like to think that I follow through on my word, so it’s been eating at me – in the back of my mind – that I committed to hosting four parties in 2007 and I haven’t really had one yet. Until this past Sunday, that is.
My sister’s brother-in-law just moved to the area and this past weekend was the first time he’s been able to come over to our place. So what better excuse for an afternoon tea party? Omar set the out the spoons and napkins, eager to get things rolling and his fingers on the apple cider donuts. We also enjoyed farm-fresh white peaches and Gala apples, mint tea, and slices of my whole wheat brioche slathered with butter and jam.
The weather was perfect and we whiled away several hours out on the side porch sipping, nibbling and chatting the afternoon away. A fabulous late-summer day.
