Carrefour Tea in Spain


While in Spain working with some teens I was hoping to try some fun new teas.... I was a little let down.


We went to the grocery store, Carrefour, and they had lots of bottle teas- but none of them tempted me.  And with the heat- I really only wanted water!!!
 


 
I did enjoy looking at the boxed tea selections!  I bought some fruity loose leaf tea to take home and try.  And if you are in a new place, I suggest you be daring and try some new teas.  Now, months later, I am pleased with the loose leaf tea that I purchased!!!

tea party at home


My parents did their annual garden tea party. I was blessed to have a table again. I invited my friend Stacey and her 4 daughters.  These girls were a DELIGHT!!!  Check out their names- Lily, Rose, Violet, and Dahlia!  We had a beautiful day for a tea.

Cucumber sandwiches and lemon tarts


The yummy spread!!!




I made these mini chocolate pudding cups.  How cute are the little cups and little spoons!  I then added a mini Nilla wafer to the top.


The queen is in!  That is what my dad calls my mom :)



The gardener, aka, my dad


This is one of my favorite sets of dishes
