Happy New Year!

I hope all of you are enjoying this Holiday season.
We had a wonderful time in New Orleans and just returned home last night.  Unfortunately I wasn't able to post pictures from NOLA, so I had to wait until now to do so. 

Here are some pics from our Tea at The Ritz.  My Mom, all of my sisters except one, and two nieces came to Tea.  I tried the most delicious tea I have ever tasted--it was Jasmine Green Tea--yummy!  Lil Petunia tried everything, but later texted to her Daddy that she "didn't really like any of it"!  Oh, well!  At least she got to walk through a life-sized edible Gingerbread house!  And we did go someplace really creepy after Tea, but that is a post for tomorrow!!

I love going to tea! I devour everything--sandwiches, tea cakes, petit fours--I can't get enough!
The jasmine green tea sounds delicious. Do you know what brand it was?
Happy New Year, Petunia!

What fun ~ you all look fabulous! I love going to tea, it brings back fun memories of going with my mother and grandmother when I was younger.

"Pretending to like the tea" is my favorite photo and caption. Looks marvelous, all of it.

I can't believe you liked the jasmine tea! It was like drinking flowers! I'm with Petunia...blech! LOL! But the sweets and hors d'oeuvres were delicious.

That hotel guy took a great picture of us!

(I'm waiting for your creepy place pictures. I took sixty!)
