A Spring Tea


Spring is finally here and it is a good time for a Spring Tea. I got so excited and planned a gathering of my friend to come and relax in the Tea Salon with me.
I set up a buffet of tea sweets and treats with my fine silver and china.
I sent out an invitation to all my reenactor friends to dress and come to tea.
It was an interesting afternoon.
My friend Steve, the sutler of Civil War Wears and Supplies came with his lady friends

What an intellectual gentlemen. He is very knowledgeable in all aspects of history. I enjoy sitting and having long talks with him.
He also wore his favorite Spring hat.
Than the Ladies came to show off their Spring Tea Hats.


We relaxed and celerated the coming of Spring with tea and good company. What a delight!
