How to serve afternoon tea

It started with Tina Turner and a large bucket of flowers sitting in the sink.

My dream of having two dear friends traveling to my home for a long weekend was coming true.  

The sink was full of beautiful flowers waiting for vessels – vases all over the place to see which ones were going to make the cut.

Tina was blaring as I was looking at the possible table settings I could create with my china and all the things!  You know….the napkins, tablecloths, mats, glasses etc. Setting a beautiful table takes time and intention. And brings you so much joy.

Why Set a Beautiful Table

The reasons are endless to set a beautiful table and for me this special weekend gave me a chance to “Be”- to be myself and create an exceptional experience for my girlfriends.

Life has become so casual.  And that is fine.  I understand.  There are times in life to elevate and expand who you are.  This was it for me.  

I also wanted this weekend to be extra special for them.  We have been masterminding about our businesses for over seventeen years.  This is EXTRAORDINARY.  For me, this is a reason to celebrate our time together, our friendship and being ENTREPRENEURS.

Not a mealtime was left out.  We set the most beautiful tables for breakfast, lunch, teatime and dinners.  We ate out only once.

The laughter, the discoveries the growth experienced over that weekend was a true success.

Our mastermind last year was so very special and expansive, we are meeting in person again – at my house for a long weekend.

I promise to share more photos of our time together.
