Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Today Mr. B and I fly off to San Francisco for a few days. While we are there we will be enjoying afternoon tea at the Fairmont. I couldn’t think of a more charming way to spend a few hours to pass the time and enjoy the niceties that the city has to offer. The Fairmont has been serving afternoon tea at the hotel since 1907 and I am glad we finally are taking an opportunity to enjoy their tea service. It will be a lovely escape from the hustle and bustle we will be experiencing outdoors.
These pictures remind me that gathering a few friends over for an afternoon of warm tea, delicious food and wonderful conversation is a great way to celebrate not only St. Patrick’s day, but any day. With the first day of Spring being just a few days away, it would be a wonderful reason to celebrate the new season amongst friends. I might just have to start planning my next gathering. How about you? –XOXO, V.
When tea becomes ritual, it takes its place at the heart of our ability to see greatness in small things. Where is beauty to be found? In great things that, like everything else, are doomed to die, or in small things that aspire to nothing, yet know how to set a jewel of infinity in a single moment. –Muriel Barbery, Author
