Tea Treats at the Propylaeum
I recently enjoyed afternoon tea with my family and dear friends at the Propylaeum in Indianapolis. What a lovely building and a lovely time catching up! The Propylaem is a long-running (since 1888) women's organization. Its mission is "to emphasize a sense of civic responsibility and community services; to foster the love of literature, music, science and the fine arts; to provide women a social and cultural center." What a perfect place for a tea room. I'm inspired just to read about it!
Our room was lovely, lots of natural light, chandeliers, delicate china, etc. My mom peeked into one of the other rooms to find a large group of older women meeting. It made an impression on her (and therefore me too!). How cool that these women are actively engaged in civic pursuits.
And of course, it was very special to have tea with my niece. I'm so proud of her, she's already a dedicated lover of tea parties. (In fact, she's having her first as the hostess this weekend!)
My tea-loving niece!
