Wildlife Tea Party

Yesterday our community held it's annual
Victorian Wildlife Tea.
Lady B, her beautiful daughter & granddaughter,
Erica and Claire attended too.

The tables were set with goodies as beautiful as they were delectable.

There was a piano player helping to set the mood.

The room was decorated from floor to ceiling.

This tea is held to raise money to protect our wildlife.
We live in Florida and are surrounded by preserves.
We enjoy an abundance of wildlife here especially
so many stunningly graceful birds.
Sometimes they get hurt and need special,
costly care.

And then there were the desserts....

How spoiled were we?

Aren't these cupcakes so sweet?

There were raffles and a silent auction.
These are my winnings this year.
Two handmade pot holders, a set of cute little place holders
and a gorgeous signed Kenneth Lane pin.

Couldn't resist showing how perfect they look
resting on my living room chair.

Close up on my pin. I love to wear pins!

Here I am with Lady B and her girls.
Little Claire won a musical carousel in the
silent auction and was thrilled.
It was a good cause and you know that
Lady B and I love a tea party!

I guess our high tea outing was pretty tame compared to yours. :-) You gals all look lovely and I'm happy to read of the worthy cause for which this tea was held.
We visited a nature preserve close to where we're staying and enjoyed the wildlife I photographed.
It was interesting to see the mammals in recovery or living at the Clearwater Aquarium but I'm sure there are so many more that are injured from human afflictions that don't get help.

An exceptional tea for a really important cause, Dame Ruthie. I hope it was a tremendous success.
Dreams are made of such dangerous, delectable desserts!
A nod to your delightful hats, and I know you are going to love wearing your exquisite pin.
I enjoyed reading your post, Judith - terrific!
