Tea Time with the girls
On our last full day in Virginia, we had a European Style afternoon tea at a lovely tea room in Newport News. One of the things we love about going to tea rooms is getting ideas to use back home. This tea room gave us lots of good ideas and the food was quite good.
We were all offered hats to wear for the occasion. Stephanie and I declined but the girls were delighted to wear hats which matched their party dresses.
The food was served European Style... in courses rather than on tiered tea trays. I had their strawberry champagne gazpacho (pictured above), it was something I've never tried before!
We all agreed it was a delightful experience and a lovely way to wrap up our time together. Stephanie and her family were making the drive back home all in one day so they left at 4:00 the next morning... yawn.
Added note: The girl's dresses were borrowed from friends...
