God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change,
the courage to change the one I can,
and the wisdom to know it's me.
A pilot is meticulous about a flight plan. Checking charts, calculating times, knowing all the wheres and whens. But for all the planning the pilot knows full well that the weather can change at a moment's notice and so the plan must change in the moment following. The economic hurricane had changed my flight plan not only for The Perfect Touch but for my life, my family's life, and the lives of so many others. So in the eye of the hurricane it seemed to be the perfect time to say "Let's Have Tea!". And so we did!
Invitations were written, ribboned, and delivered.
Tea For One teapots were ordered from The English Tea Store and Distinctive Decor. The perfect lace linens were found. Fresh flowers arranged and the setting was ready to welcome guests.
The Tea is being held in Mosteller Mansion in the large main level room that was originally the master bedroom. There is a wonderful chandelier, mirrors to reflect the beautiful woodwork, a seating area overlooking the gardens, an entrance onto the rear patio, and two incredible baths. You may remember the tub with the glass surround from my previous post? That was the bath for the lady of the house.
You have probably noticed the many different teapots. Part of the fun was having everyone select their seating with a teapot they enjoyed. There were no more than two of the same teapot with the intention being that it would be fun to find your "Tea Sister" - the lady with the same teapot as you - and get to know her!
Everything is ready, let's have tea!
