Communi-Tea - Intentional Hospitality

This day was building in my heart for years. There were those who inspired, those who opposed and those who attended, it finally happened in October. I have had a vision for a tea party where lots of women, from lots of different places come together and fellowship. It was a dream come true, a walking out of my identity as a daughter of God. Inviting, encouraging, beckoning women to come, get away for a few hours talk to other women and enjoy the beauty of our Father in each other. 

We started a small group in our home a couple of months ago, which gave me the final push and vision for this day. It was a month ago that I knew it would be called "Communi-Tea" and that gave me the fuel and fire to get the invitations printed. 

The weather could not have been more perfect, so we stayed on the back porch the whole time. Enjoying each other, the food, the tea and the fun.

Our menu included the following:

Sandwiches & Savory

Sweets & Treats

Pumpkin Muffins
Assorted Russell Stover Chocolates
Plain scones served with
lemon curd and Devonshire cream

The pictures I took of the amazing women who attended did not come out. When I went to download them from the camera they were not there, so you will have to trust me that these women were beautiful and had a wonderful time.

Everyone was already talking about doing it again and we will in the Spring. Maybe you could join us?
