The Augusta Historical Society held its 18th annual tea today and I attended for the third time. This year the theme was holiday tables.
They take your name when you call for reservations and have a place card at your spot.
I love their little teapot holders, too.
Without knowing anything about me, they put me at the Christmas table! How perfect was that? This was my view right in front of my plate. Wonderful, isn’t it?
The favors were this little paper teacups with candy. Each was decorated with something appropriate for the theme at that table.
Our table had a Christmas tree with crocheted snowflakes, antique garland and cookie cutters.
The base was covered with fruit, including those clove studded oranges, which I’m not sure I’ve ever seen except in magazines.
Other tables had their own delights.
The tea is held in a log cabin on the grounds. Today we were treated to mandolin music while we enjoyed tea.
Their tea is a buffet, and the food is simple, but it’s a nice event. They do it Friday and Saturday, the first weekend in May. I go to this one on Friday so I can attend the St. James tea in Wichita on Saturday.
