Ladies Tea marks spring in Tatla Lake

A fashion show and a great luncheon were the order of the day for the 15th annual Ladies’ Spring Tea.

A fashion show and a great luncheon were the order of the day for the 15th annual  Ladies’ Spring Tea held at Tatla Lake Community Hall Saturday, April 25.

Quite a few of the women took the opportunity to really dress up for the occasion and looked so lovely.

The tea and visits were great. It was nice to see friends visiting each other and catching up on all the latest news.

The hall was decorated very tastefully with a springy yellow theme.

Tables were graced with green and yellow accessories with white napkins tucked in tall-stemmed water glasses.

The event included a fashion show which raised a lot of interest in the BFF store in Williams Lake which supplied fashions. Many women bought clothes that were  modelled.

Walk-Rite Shoes in Williams Lake also had a wide array of shoes and bags on display, making many women happy to actually be able to shop for footwear and accessories.

Lunch was absolutely delicious, provided by Maelen Zimser, head cook from the Graham Inn who provided two kinds of salad and a baked chicken dish with asparagus and sauce, mmmm, mouth watering.

The 15-year celebration cake served with ice cream was so good.

After that most of the visitors jumped up to help clear the tables and headed off to do chores at home.

Thanks goes out to Bev Bishop for organizing and overseeing the tea.

We do enjoy our ladies’ teas.
