High Tea at Barkley Square

Welcome friends for tea this week.  I'm linking with Rose Chintz Cottage, Sweetology, Bernideen's Tea Time and A Delightsome Life to join these hosts and their guests, I hope you'll join us too.
This past weekend I attended a high tea at Barkley Square, a country inn style restaurant that served it in style.
The tea was a fund raiser for lupus and each woman that entered the tea room was handed a gift bag as they were seated at their table.  Inside was a DVD movie and a brochure explaining what lupus is.
The food was excellent and hot tea flowed freely.
Barkley Square is always decorated beautifully to enhance the  cozy ambience inside. 
 The owner has decided the tea was such a success that she will hold two next year, one in the summer and again in fall.  I'm looking forward to attending again.

  1. Hi,
    Boy does this bring back memories. I attended high tea years ago when vacationing in Canada with friends. It was so much fun. Can't think of the name of the place. I better check it out in my scrapbook. Glad you had a delightful time. Thanks for your sweet comment about my quilt. :)

  13. Judith! What a fun experience and I agree, it is for a good cause. Lupus is the great masquerader - and affects every part of the body. Thanks for sharing this great post. Take care.
