A Dear Friend Brings a Special Guest . . .
Have I told you lately how happy I am that you visit with me here in The Tearoom? I have met such lovely friends here!
This morning, my lovely friend in Paris Marie-France has brought us a special guest. It is my deepest honor today to be hosting a special tea in honor of Our Queen Marie Antoinette!
The collage above is one Marie-France created for me! It really is perfect, isn't it? Our Queen sits here in The Tearoom in such beautiful colors! She created this for a post she has very graciously written about me and The Tearoom on her gorgeous collage site NigéArt! Merci beaucoup, ma chère ami! C'est incroyable!
And just when I was beginning to wonder what to serve my friends and honored guests today, I checked my e-mail again and what did I find? This lovely dessert from Monsieur Pierre Hermé! I'm sure some of you will remember that spring is the time of year for the emergence of his fetish flavor Montebello. And so thank you, Monsieur Hermé for providing me with something wonderful to serve my guests today! For tea, I will be serving the Quatre Fruit Rouge tea (Four Red Fruits) scented with the essences of strawberry, raspberry, cherry and currant from Betjeman & Barton, brought to our attention by Vicky at the lovely French Essence.
(In the meanwhile, Miss LuLu is ill, so we will leave a cup of Earl Grey next to her bed! Note to Fur Babies:
This tea is for Mommy. Do not drink it please!)
