Last month our dear Mommy turned 78!   We celebrated with a tea party at LInde Lane Tea Room in Dixon, CA  I love the Victorian era decor at this charming, and lovely place.   Our group of 8 were seated in the Teddy Bear Room.  Very apropo since our Mom likes Teddy bears.  I brought some hats and fascinators for us to wear.

Most of us ordered the Royal Tea lunch.  This course began with a small scoop of sorbet.  Then we were served a most delicious chicken soup that contained gnocchi, a potato dumpling, as well as some mouth-watering Italian spices.  After that,  a few 3-tiered etageres were brought to our table.  Laden with tiny sandwiches, scones with clotted cream, and dainty cookies and pastries, we truly enjoyed this sumptuous fare.  Of course we each had a cup of tea.  They offered a wide variety of favors.  I chose the licorice mint tea, which was refreshing.   A good time was had by all.   Happy Birthday dearest Mommy!  We love you bunches!
