A friend of mine recently became a Mary Kay consultant. To help support her in her new venture, and to find a fun way to get us girls together on a weekend day, I planned a Ladies’ Afternoon Tea. And who am I kidding? I just love entertaining!
This was a low-key afternoon affair, so I didn’t go all-out with decor and such. I kept it simple with some tasty treats and colour coordinated flowers and napkins (pink, for Mary Kay, of course).
I set up my butler’s pantry with tea mugs and assorted teas. The dining room table was the place to be, with tea biscuits, jams and spreads, cucumber sandwiches, fancy cupcakes, and buttercream dipped doughnuts (coloured in pink food colouring to go with the Mary Kay theme).
It was a lovely way to spend the afternoon with friends: treats, makeup, lots of hot tea, and sun pouring in through the windows. Maxin’ relaxin’.
