The 6th Tea Time Tuesday
Today I am announcing:
The 2nd Mississippi Magnolia Southern Belles Tea Luncheon
This past September I hosted the 1st Mississippi Magnolia Southern Belle and Friends Luncheon at The Corner Bakery Cafe, in Flowood, Mississippi
The Corner Bakery Cafe let me come in and use my items to set the table.
Only the napkins and cups belonged to the Corner Bakery Cafe
With Donna help, we finishing setting the table
just as the Belles and their husbands were arriving.

This past September I gave only a few weeks notice for the Tea Luncheon
for I was going in for my 40th surgery in October just a few week after.
So some of the Belles did not get to come

View of the Table
I used Hazel, famous grapevine basket, yes the ones you saw in the last Tea Time Tuesday.
I used sunflowers and gourds that I grew,
On each side were grapevine cones of flowers in a stand, I purchased at Ross,
just minutes before the Tea Luncheon. I also used my black sea grass round placemats.
Each Belle received a pumpkin full of loose leaf tea samples.
Christine brought each Belle, a bag of wonderful Fudge she bought in Natchez, Mississippi
My husband ate all mine, I got to taste just a little and it was so wonderful!

We had a great time meeting each other for the first time,
it was like we had known each other forever.
We stayed at the Corner Bakery Cafe for hours just talking.
We all had planned to do some shopping, but we were having such a great time.
We just stayed and visited with each other.
We all ordered something different, there was sandwiches, soup, salads, and pastries.
I had breakfast and the Black Currant Tea,
which was a little strong, so I mixed in a little Sweet Tea. Then I was in love!
This 2nd Tea Luncheon will be hosted by Christine at her home in Natchez, Mississippi on June 5th, 2010
At least 6 of us (so far) are attending the Tea Luncheon in Natchez on June 5th. We would love for all the Mississippi Magnolia Southern Belles to make an announcement on your Blog Website, and/or your Face Book ,Twitter. Christine will have us meet at her home and then we can drive around Natchez (which is very small) and then tour at least one of the antebellum houses (your choice). Then, maybe we can walk around downtown and browse through the antique shops. Afterwards we will go back to Christine’s home for Tea and Pastries.
You can even go swimming if you want so bring a bathing suit,
Christine and John have put in a wonderful new pool this past year.
Christine is open to any suggestions as far as activities go. These are all tentative.
Please email me or Christine if you are interested in attending. It will be fun for sure to see each other again and to meet new Belles that we have not met.
Make your plans early! This will be so much fun!
Natchez, Mississippi is a lovely place to see,
as you can see in the photo below
Should you want to make a weekend of this visit, their are many places to stay, including some lovely Bed and Breakfast in these old lovely homes. There are also Casinos on the Mississippi River that runs through Natchez, Mississippi
Please email me or Christine if you are interested in attending, and please let us know how many will be coming with you. It will be so much fun to see each other again and to meet other Belles that we have not met. Bring your Friends and come join us!
We are going to have such a lovely time at Christine’s!

Here is why I have been missing in Action!
I want to apologize to all.
I have not been on the computer,
for last Tuesday night my daughter told me she was getting married on Friday. I had to make a veil, flowers, and do a reception at my home. I have been so busy, and still have to put the crystal and silver back in the China Closet.
I am exhausted!
I will be visiting you all double time this week!
So sorry I have not been able to visit all your Tea’s!
I will show you my daughter wedding reception
on another day.
Thank you for understanding! See you all soon!
Thank you all for joining me for
