Tea Party!

Mother's Parkwood Retirement Community knows how to do things up right.
Saturday they had their Mother's Day Tea.  Ladies were encouraged to decorate tables, and invite friends to join them.  

Here is the table Mother and I were invited to...

And here are the Mother and Daughter hostesses who decorated it...
They're Sue and Germain, and they're wearing the hats Mother gave them. (Those hats fold up into little purses.).
 Here's a sweet lady at our table wearing hers...
It was good to see that dear lady smiling. (She hadn't been feeling too well. I do believe the party and the hat perked her up.)


I walked around before the party taking pictures of pretty tables... 

That last picture is of Jean with her beautiful granddaughters. 

The picture before that is of Ruth using her talent of drawing. (Ruth is 90! - and is sharp as a tack.)

The fourth picture up is of Ella at her table (with the blue and yellow). Even Ella's outfit and corsage match her table, which her beloved son Robert decorated. (Ella is 94, I think.)

Where's my mother, you ask?
Look closely and you'll see her in the red jacket right in the middle of this picture...

In my next post you'll see some more pictures of her, along with most of the rest of us.
We ate at Parkwood today. 
Mmm.
Talk about a lovely meal, and a lovely Mother's Day!


I hope yours has been good!
