Mother Daughter Tea

My dear friend Lori welcomed us into our home for a weekend retreat, mothers and daughters. We arrived to a beautifully set table, and a buffet of delicious foods at noon.

The afternoon was filled with cake decorating, making kitchen trivets, a beading craft, and free time. Big girls played with littler girls while mommies talked and relaxed.

The evening meal was served in the gazebo, and was followed by singing, and watching Louisa May Alcott's The Inheritance. We talked into the wee hours of the morning, until we finally made our way to our lovingly prepared rooms.

A breakfast feast was prepared by Rebecca. A leisurely morning turned to afternoon, and we slowly parted ways. What a blessing to have friends that go out of their way to make others feel special.

What a neat idea. It looks like a lot of attention was put into the details. "Dinner in the gazebo" sounds absolutely lovely!

What a great idea - how many of you were their? Just you and Abigail or were their others?
