A proper high tea is the perfect way to welcome the start of spring.
This weekend I was invited to speak at the Lake Windsor Springtime High Tea, in honor of their late founder, Susan Boswell. The pleasure was all the greater knowing the event supported the Alzheimer’s association and the Windsor Lakes library.
What an absolutely gorgeous event and one of the most gracious audiences I’ve ever been privileged to speak to!
Just look at the decorations and table settings for the event!
Isn’t it just gorgeous? And it tasted as good as it looked. The sandwiches were lovely and the scones were amazing. And the cookies–just wow. I confess I’m a chocolate gal, not a cookie one, but these could definitely change my mind! The kitchen volunteers were simply amazing!
I got to speak on one of my favorite topics: Down the Research Rabbit hole. I can get a little carried away talking about all the random bits of fascination I find as I’m researching and just how they get working into the writing process.
Granted, trying to explain how to research about teething DRAGONS did raise a few eyebrows, but hey, they deserve their share of period correct detail too, don’t they?
I can imagine an event I would rather have attended with my Mr. Darcy. Thanks so much Windsor Lakes!
