All dressed up with hats and Fascinators, ladies attended a wonderful Tea at Ruth's Table. Aiko Cuneo brought her collection of tea cups and saucers. Lola and Megan brought in the tea pots and tiered stands. They brought in the goodies. We were serenaded by a wonderful harpist while we enjoyed the cucumber sandwiches, crumpets, cookies and candy and, of course, tea. Aiko also brought in slides of various hats from around the world. A raffle was had and Nicole won the gift basket and I won the best prize, a Fascinator made by Aiko.

Latin countries have a version of high tea called merienda. It is a time to pause and have an afternoon snack, coffee or tea and meet with friends...a very civilized tradition.
