On the Lighter Side

A few weeks ago I was invited to go to a Ladies Tea at a different church. You know I never pass up an opportunity to go try something new.  Not only that my friend Mrs. M was the guest speaker. The theme was April in Paris. The church was light, bright and felt like spring. The building its self was welcoming and felt comfortable. Mrs. So came with me, we had a blast just hanging out together.


They showed us photos of Paris as we mingled and waited for things to get started.
We had homemade chocolate Effile towers. Everything was pink and fluffy.
Here is the salad, scones and "crumpets". I said they looked like English muffins cut in half. What do I know?
Not shown - mini crab cakes and tea sandwiches
Everyone got a little pink and black fluffy "purse"  that said OOH LA LA

The "passport" contained a menu, and an information card.

Dessert




An undisclosed person sitting at our table ate about 1/2 cup of salad and said OH I am full. I said I am not. She said I am satisfied with just this little tiny bit, and I will be full all day. I wonder if the undisclosed person did not want us to make pigs of ourselves. Because she mentioned that 3 times, I ate more then I normally do. I ate like a herd of pigs. The food was very tasty.

I don't think the theme fit the scripture of the day.

Psalms 45:11 "Let the king be enthralled by your beauty; honor him, for he is your lord. "

I guess April in Paris is beautiful. Mrs. M gave a short but good speech about our inner beauty. Mrs. F is a fun and engaging speaker.

They had costumes. You could dress in old time French attire and get your photos taken. I wanted to be a CAN CAN girl, but I contained my self because Mrs. M was the guest speaker.

The ladies of the church had a game- Paris trivia contest. The only question I got right was "who was the famous rock star that is buried in Paris." That was easy Jim Morrison of the Doors- I thought everyone knew that?
