I host an annual themed luncheon with dear friends, and this year was an English tea (my interpretation). The date and theme were announced, location set (one of their homes as they no longer make the hour drive north to me), formal invitations mailed, menu and table decor planned, food prepped, baked and packed, and off I went with my portable party!

(BTW: Homemade clotted cream takes 10 hrs in a 175F/80C oven + 8 hrs to chill, but 100% worth it!)

I don't know what possessed me to buy a pink suit, but I love it. The fascinator was a last minute DIY -- silly, but so glad I wore it. Makes the look, don't you think?

They are so lovely to humor me and play along with the theme, and we had such a lovely time! We all look forward to this event. I'm still reeling a week later, and plotting for next year (maybe requiring a pink suit).
