Following tradition, Audrey and Andrea McGuire hosted a “high tea” for relatives soon after arriving in Colorado. Both girls worked hard making the event the highlight of the week. Using freshly picked wildflowers as a centerpiece, the girls finished decorating with tea cups discovered by their great-aunt.
The girls provided chocolate cowpies, chocolate chip meringues and pecan cookies they lovingly prepared earlier. Special treats were also brought by the girls’ Oma and great-aunts. Assorted teas were offered. Entertainment was provided by the girls’ uncle and brother who sang “Buffalo Girls”.
Each year, the formal tea party grows in number. The hostesses were pleased to discover that they were the very first to have ever invited Grandma Green to a tea party!
Knowing the next tea will be eagerly anticipated, the girls will continue to expand on their culinary skills and search for exquisite teas to offer.
