Social Scene: Islanders enjoy royal tea



Islanders enjoy royal tea

Cathy Bressan, Yolanda Medwid and Kay Lee Edgar are ready to serve tea.

The marriage of the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan, was celebrated in royal style at a tea hosted by Cathy Bressan, Yolanda Medwid, Marie McIntosh, and Kay Lee Edgar. Decorated beautifully in pinks and whites, Yolanda’s house rivaled Windsor Castle. Tables were bedecked with white and pink roses, and even the pink napkins were rolled into roses.  On each table was placed historical English and German china, and this included an actual tea cup and saucer from England’s celebration of the queen’s mother’s 100th year, 1900-2000. So, in a small way British royalty attended the tea.

British ladies Marie and Kay Lee served as consultants to proper table arrangement, and how to pour tea correctly.  A huge British flag, provided by Kay Lee, was on display.

Genuine tea sandwiches, scones and three British teas were served.  They were black, orange, and royal wedding.

The elegance of the tea was enhanced by the fashionably dressed ladies. They all looked regal in their gorgeous frocks, hats, fascinators, and even gloves!  Even though none of the attendees had formal invitations to the wedding, the tea was indeed fit for a royal king and queen. Even the new bride would proclaim it was a fabulous event.
