The extension group that my MIL belongs to, orchestrated the entire event; a ladies tea and luncheon and silent auction to help raise funds.
The room was all dressed up in the finest tea-ware around, pretty tea cups, chintz plates, servers and silver and the ladies were all wearing darling vintage aprons.
On the menu: Lemon-ginger scones, darling little tea sandwiches, pastries and sweet treats along with wonderful tea lovingly served in the sweetest collection of assorted tea pots.
The fun was yet to come though...in order to raise funds you have to have something to bid on, in this case, aprons, lots and lots of aprons!
Most of them vintage, some new, some serious but every one of them cute and putting on their best show for bidding.
Here's a few pictures of a lovely day...come on in, the door is open...
The front of the apron I won the bid on...
more on that later.
just a few of those cute aprons!
