Katherine and I had a blast at the Ladies’ Tea(/Coffee) Party. It’s good to be at a church with an active ladies’ ministry. Women of all ages hosted tables and invited guests; there was a raffle, snacks and two contests, “Best Hat” and “Best Head Ornament”, of which I was the judge.
A few men of the church offered to be servers. I got out of that by photographing the event 😉
Mark Carman called the raffle with appropriate enthusiasm. His impression of the announcer from The Price Is Right is spot on. He also had the best joke of the afternoon, during the raffle. “Here we have a digital scale… a digital scale. If you’re looking to get into the meth business, this’ll come in real handy.” Keep in mind, half the room was women over 65.
All in all, about 100 ladies attended and some great quality time was spent with friends and family. The table decorations were absolutely outrageous. Some of them looks straight out of Versailles. I took several pictures of just tables xD…but those are for the wonderful woman who organized the event, “Mama Nancy.”
