Afternoon Tea – done Ivy style

This year Ivy’s mom’s been through a lot, severing part of her foot from a dropped glass table-top.  In true Ivy style, she planned a lovely Afternoon Tea for her mom and invited friends and family to join in. Here’s a really short excerpt of a really lovely day.

Special Blend Earl Grey Tea from Sweden’s ‘Tea Centre of Stockholm’
