Her are her answers to my questions to help plan the party:
*what would make the evening tea party magical for her? Soft music, a few good friends and chocolate
*Had she ever attended a tea party before? NO, but she did have lunch at a tearoom with me last year.
* What items would she like to see on the menu? Cute little sandwiches, pretty desserts, no salsa!
* What is her favorite type of tea? Black Tea
* How many desperate sportswives are planning to attend? Keep it simple, 5 plus me
* Would she like to have party favors? Yes, something that they can take home
And last but never least-what is her budget? $10 per person, food and favor, she could go over a bit if needed.
