I was truly touched to be invited to afternoon tea at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills honoring my future sister-in-law. It was an absolutely LOVELY affair. The hotel is beautiful and unpretentious…they just make you feel very special. It was an unforgettable treat and I couldn’t help but think how much my mom would have loved every tiny detail. The amazing hats some of the ladies wore, champagne, tiny sandwiches, petite pastries, the red velvet cupcake party favor…I could go on and on. Oh, and I can’t forget the most scrumptious Triple Berry Shortcake from Sweet Lady Jane’s.

I wish I had better photos to share with you, but I forgot my camera! Darn it.
