Tea for Two…or 200

by Joy Donovan on December 21, 2008

Lucky me! I was invited to three holiday teas…all in one day.

For some reason the same Sunday seemed to be the perfect day for National Charity League chapters around here to hold their annual teas.

Fine with me. I can flit from tea to tea to tea like the professional tea-sipper I truly am.

The first I attended was for a portion of the Colleyville Area Chapter at the gorgeous home of Beth Champlin and her daughter Catherine. The Champlins’ stunning tree dominates their entry–what a great welcome. Among those there were chapter prez Lee Ann Stanley, Carey Ebert and her daughter Paige, Nancy Edwards and her daughter Cassidy, Dana Feldman and her daughter Andrea Solomon, Patti Dzura and her daughter Lindsey, Judy Till and her daughter Maggie, Dr. Carolyn Helbert-Green and her daughter Carlee. Besides taking tea, taking class pictures was part of the afternoon’s activity, too.

Before that tea was over, I popped over the Colleyville Chapter’s tea honoring its seniors. In the beautiful home of Valerie and Ashley Hubbard, the seniors were introduced during those tea festivities. It was a formal break in the chit chat surrounding the two unbelievable tea tables–one decorated in sophisticated shades of white, the other more casual in festive red and white. Seen at the tea were Jo Pool with daughter Anna, Chris Orrell and daughter Avery, Deanna Marsh and daughter Andie, Judy Strittmatter and her daughter Whitney, and Ronda Poettcker and her daughter Allison

And last but not least, I headed to Christ Haven Chapel for the new Keller Chapter’s first-ever tea. It was my first time ever for an evening tea, so there were firsts all around. Organizers had transformed the building into a winter wonderland…oh-so organized for never having done this sort of thing before. Included at this tea were chapter president Tracy Williams and daughter Rachel,  Debbi Schneider and her daughter Abby, Ellen Rheinlaender and daughter Jennifer Pacione, Mika Meyer and daughter Kaila, Robin Ramsey and her daughter Emily, plus special guest Lesley Irwin, the group’s expansion advisor. The group brought toys and gift cards to be donated to Christ Haven for Children and Community Storehouse.

Three teas…one day…that holding my pinkie in the air was just exhausting.
