Dolly’s Tea Party

The bread has turned mouldy. But I do not have the heart to throw away the remaining slice.

Dolly had hosted a tea party. The toasted hearts were used as canapés. The open heart shapes were then stuffed with strawberry jam, and a McCain Smiley placed above it. The toasted wonders were then garnished with piped mayonnaise and glace cherries. We wore pink floppy hats, and a cup of tea was placed in front of all the guests – Teddy, Barbie, Bunny and Henry.

It is heart-breaking to think that I will never hear that voice again, “Gramma, tea party ….”

  1. The starting line makes so much more sense when the last line hits you.
    Loved the way you have expressed so much in so less words…
    Great description of the tea party snack which should also get attention. Mind if i try it once myself? Made my mouth water. 😛
