Afternoon Tea at the St. Regis

Members of the River Oaks Women's Breakfast Club gathered this afternoon for Afternoon Tea at the St. Regis Hotel on Briar Oaks Lane. Being part of the group - and a big fan of events of this sort - I was eager to attend and join in the fun. 

Well, which woman wouldn't be?

Afternoon Tea at the St. Regis is always a treat! The environment is lovely; the service is impeccable, and the three traditional courses - finger sandwiches, scones and desserts - are always delicious and eloquently presented. 

Our gathering was coordinated by Candace Baggett, our social chair extraordinaire. Candace picked the date, booked the tea room and worked out the details. She put the invitations together and got them out. Then, she followed up by he talking up this special event at many of our weekly meetings. As expected, many responded in the affirmative, and we filled the tea room.

Candace suggested we all show up in hats, and some of our group did just that, including one of our newest ROWBC members, Interior Designer Peggy Hull. 

Seeing Peggy and so many of our other friends (all businesswomen) dressed in printed summer dresses and wide-brimmed bonnets made such a lovely picture. If only I had thought to bring a camera!
