This week DTL Herbs, aka Troy and I, were invited to be the guest speaker at this years Macomb Master Gardeners Associations Annual Banquet. The theme was an old fashion tea party. Troy gave a wonderful presentation on the history of tea and various interesting tea facts. I had created a special blend of herb infused tea just for this group and prepared 150 individual tea bags for all the guests.
Many of the ladies created their own special hat just for the evening. There were so many cute and pretty hats! They also had tables filled with gardening themes prizes.
The food was amazing!
Each table had two door prizes. One was a teapot with an herb planted inside and the other was a teacup planted with an herb as well.
And at each persons setting they had a few little gifts. All tea related and so fun! Someone had made the cute tea pouch to hold the teabag I made, there was a package of two herb infused scones and a copy of Tea Time Magazine! What lovely gifts!
It really was a very fun and lovely event. The banquet committee did an amazing job putting it all together! And Troy and I are so happy to have been part of it! We had a wonderful evening!
Now I want to say thank you. Last week I posted about why I haven't been blogging. I was very nervous to actually publish that post. It wasn’t a normal Thrifty Groove kind of post. But, your honest, sincere heartfelt comments actually brought tears to my eyes. I should have known that you amazing ladies are so generous, kind and strong! I may not be one of those mega bloggers with a gazillion followers but, MY followers are the most loving! You were there when I needed you. I can’t ask for anything more!
So, I just wanted to say a huge Thank You to all of you! You have no idea how much your comments mean to me!
Since Troy and I both received a copy of Tea Time Magazine, I thought I would share one of the copies with one of you. I know, It’s just a small little gift but, it really is a lovely magazine.
If you would like a chance to receive a copy of Tea Time magazine, just leave a comment on this post and make sure there is a way I can reach you. It’s that simple. I will announce the winner next Friday (May 22, 2015).
Once again Thank You! Sending you back much love!
