Tea Time!

by Amy M.

This past Saturday, one of my favorite springtime activities took place:  the annual Downton Abbey Tea!  Like last year, the hostess went to great lengths to provide entertainment, elegance, and fun!  A marvelous time was had by all!

This year’s theme was the celebration of the marriage of Lady Rose and Atticus Aldridge. Cheers!

Anne, the hostess, sends each guest home with a unique gift. I received Downton Abbey marmalade, lemon curd, and scone mix. Also, two mini soaps from Highclere Castle!

We spent the rest of the weekend relaxing and enjoying the backyard:
