For those of you following the blog, you know by now that I am working on my 30 Before 30 List!
#17 Experience High Tea can be checked off the list!
My friend JQ helped me out by indulging me/jumping in wholeheartedly in an afternoon of tea. In our minds, we looked something like this…
But I think we pulled something more along these lines…
We went to one of my favorite places in Tampa — The Oxford Exchange. It’s a bibliophile paradise! And the home goods are to die for! (Also the food is amazing! Obviously, I am a huge fan!) Check it out: http://oxfordexchange.com/
We had the best time. We wore sweet vintage hats and chatted about Jane Austen and Virginia Woolf while munching on delicious treats and giggling. Here’s a great view of JQ’s hat — classic daisies!
We took a sweet selfie (in the bathroom)!
(It took us a bunch of tries… which I have included in the spirit of journalistic integrity!)
And here were our treats! Complete with homemade scones and macarones!
Then posed adorably with our treats and hopeful looks!
Real ladies toast their scones, right?
Thanks for coming along on our tea party! It was a fantastic afternoon and the 30 Before 30 adventures continue…
