The Mennonite Heritage Museum in Goessel, Kansas, held a tea this afternoon and invited me to be their speaker. I love to do speaking engagements, but you just never know what an event will be like. “Tea” can mean everything from a cookie to a full meal.
These ladies did a spectacular job! It was perfect in every way. Everything was beautiful, the food was delicious, and everyone so pleasant. I really enjoyed the ladies I was seated with. I was honored to be there.
I was even seated with this beautiful embroidered linen with crocheted edge. I’m happy to say it was no worse for the wear when it was over.
A couple of the ladies who were instrumental in the planning are Downton Abbey fans, and you could see the British influence. Everything was very nice.
They offered a great assortment of goodies – so much so that eventually I had to just taste things and not eat the whole thing because there was so much. But I wanted to taste all the goodies.
Of course, they had to offer some peppernuts. I certainly never mind that!
They even had name cards at every place.
The tables were all set with beautiful cloths.
They paid great attention to every detail, which is part of what makes tea special.
I’m hoping they make it a regular event. I’m ready to buy my ticket right now!
