High Tea at Christmas

Welcome dear friend, recently I attended a Christmas High Tea for Ladies, it was such a delightful time that I thought I would share the experience with you today…

I had invited my old friend who I introduced in Heart matters!  to share in this time with me, as we both enjoy High teas. This event has become an annual fundraiser for an overseas ministry, the organizing ladies do such an amazing job with the decor of the hall, catering, entertainment & of course tea! Some of the men from the church dress in posh waiters attire complete with bow ties for the occasion.

As I have shared here before I have Celiac Disease, which means that gluten found in wheat, barley, rye & oats are as poison to me. Gluten can be hidden in many food products & 100th of a gram of contamination can make me extremely ill for days. So it’s a huge challenge when I eat out…but one of the ladies that was supervising the catering for this event has a husband who has Celiac Disease, so on this occasion I could be assured that all measures were taken for no contamination…

There was such a great choice of tea blends on the Tea Menu, I was in my element! My favorite was Turkish Delight which was sweet & delicious. I particularly enjoyed the gf Lemon slice & gf caramel slice which were both cut into perfect bitesize pieces.

The soloist entertained us with new Christmas Melodies & the Speaker delivered a hilarious analogy with tea leaves verses tea bags in our walk of Faith. As we were munching on delicious petite fours & drinking exotic tea blends served to us in vintage tea cups.

We had a door prize draw & guess who won one of the beautiful Teapot, cup & saucer sets! Yes, I did! I’ll feature it in a future reflection.

The afternoon was one full of enjoyment in getting to know new ladies & catching up with old friends. A truly blessed time of fellowship at this busy time of the year…

I have been looking over this past year & it has been quite an adventurous one…If you would like to be transported to share in the following moments then select & tap on the colored text below…

I shared some scary moments;

Then we shared some deeply reflective moments;

And of course we had some delightful fun too;

Remember dear friend, enjoy each moment in life for whatever it is at the time because it’s these moments that eventually make up your lifetime…Until next time…

  2. Sounds like such fun!! High Tea is not something I hear spoken about in the Midwest, but I did have something akin to it once in the Washington DC area with our daughter. Can’t wait to see the tea set you won!! Have a blessed weekend❤️
