Christine was our hostess for the Mississippi Magnolia Southern Belles Tea Luncheon
 at her home, Saturday. She welcome us with  a lovely Tablecloth on her kitchen island filled with a wonderful Buffet of Asian Food, she had prepared. In front of each dish Christine used erasable ceramic place cards which held the name of each Asian Dish she had prepared.
Notice: Christine’s wonderful Brick Floor
Christine has lovely serving pieces she served the delicious Asian food upon.
I do not remember all the names of the Asian food, the chicken was stuffed with Crawfish, My husband loved this dish, for he has a crawfish pond. 
Beautiful flatware and blue tranferware plates on the buffet 
Notice the lids of the serving dishes, just lovely! 
The pool and flowers outdoors is more beautiful than the pictures you see on Christine’s Website.
As it had rained all morning, we ate Lunch in Christine’s Dining Room. So sorry I did not get a photo of the dining room! Christine gave a a tour of each room of her home. So lovely Christine!
In a lovely crystal punch bowl, 7up vanilla ice cream
 Christine had a Tea Table set up.
The lovely Teapots and warmers held 
Pear Guava Tea, and Mango Passion Fruit Tea
Both Teas were delightful! I adored the Mango Passion Fruit Tea,
 the Pear Guava Tea was a wonderful Tea for everyday. 
The table linens are so lovely.
The centerpiece was a lovely Conservatory 
Blue and white teacups set on a tray
The cloche is filled with delicious chocolate chip cookies.
Melons in a lovely blue bowl
Now I loved the desert in the long pan, I forgot the name, Oh, but it was wonderful! 
Visit Christine’s lovely blog,
 to find all the names of the delicious foods she has served.  
After lunch we sat around the Breakfast table, as we opened gifts. 
Bobby, Vicki’s husband is taking a photo of Donna as she shows the lovely blue bowl she won, which Christine gave as a door prize. I always loved Christine’s wooden Lazy Susan in the middle of the Breakfast table. Christine’s home is lovely and has many wonderful pieces. 
I love her napkin ring cabinet, just to the left of the French Doors. 
Notice the wood ceiling and beams in the kitchen. 
John, Christine’s husband and my husband, 
Terry were sitting behind us in Christine’s Family room.
Vicki, brought a door prize she had painted, her original painting of Magnolias and Teapot
I am happy to say, I won this lovely painting! 
 So fitting for a 
 Mississippi Magnolia Southern Belle, don’t you think?
Christine gave each of her guest a set of four Royal Albert blue rose napkin rings. 
We all shall have a table setting with these lovely napkin rings soon.

All the Belles which couldn’t come to this lovely Tea Luncheon, you were missed. 

After touring Christine lovely garden, John drove in the car ahead and gave us a drive by tour of many lovely homes, an old cemetery, and downtown Natchez to visit the wonderful antique shops. John also took us all to tour a lovely home, then he went back home where he hosted our husbands for the afternoon. Thank You John for a wonderful tour of Natchez!
 Oh, a wedding was being held at the home we planned to tour, Christine took us to tour Rosalie Mansion a beautiful home by the Mississippi River, I loved this home for the original owners furnishings are still in the home.  This home also had a
 Gentleman’s Parlor and a Ladies Parlor. 
Christine took photos of these lovely rooms. 
This Fall The Natchez Pilgrimage will be held October 1-15.

  5. Hi again! Better get plenty of rest, Katherine. That was a long drive and lots of walking for you, not to mention the stairs we had to climb at Rosalie. Your picture on the verandah overlooking the MS River is so beautiful. Thanks for featuring my blog again. Also,if you’re ever in this area or when Terrie needs to buy something from LA, call me and tell him to drop you off and we can just relax in the garden and have tea. John is feeling better I think. He better cause he has 9 cases today…Christine

  13. Sounds like you all had an absolutely wonderful time together. Although there is pleasure in taking tea alone- I like to use a pot, loose leaf and fine china when I do- it is so great when you can share the pleasure with others.

  21. What a lovely party!! Everything is so pretty, and the food looked delish!!

    I must say, your white dress is stunning…and you look beautiful in it.

    I must tell you, I LOVE magnolias. There is a huge story to my one of my favorite teacups—my magnolia teacup. I’m in the process of getting a blog makeover, and I’m going to be using a photo of my magnolia teacup in my header. As a Southern gal, who is currently living in the Northwest, my heart is in the South, and magnolias hold a special place in my heart, so it’s the perfect teacup to use.

    Anyhow, blessings,
    Patti (Fill My Cup with Beauty)
