To top it of, her host Ingrid got her hair chopped off and she did not like it at all. There was no way she was going to be photographed and it took a few days for her to cheer up. Last Thursday, when Priscilla found out she was to be come along to a Birthday Afternoon Tea and be prettily decked out with carnations, she hardly slept all night... such was her excitement.
Priscilla receives a royal welcome at Judith's home, the hostess and birthday girl.
Soon Ingrid was busily arranging the table and with a sigh of relieve, Priscilla prettily plopped herself down in the centre of the table, waiting for the guests to arrive.
As the guests arrived they were treated to a refreshing drink of lichee, lemon and perrier.
While enjoying their first cup of Earl grey tea, freshly baked scones with clotted cream and lemon curd were being served.
As much as Priscilla wanted to take photographs with all the guests at the table, it is not something that was possible, and while everyone was enjoying the scones, Ingrid was putting on the finishing touches of a lovely summer salad.
On a sweet juicy watermelon, layers of avocado, lobster, radishes and taboule, served with a quail egg on chai mayonnaise, white currants an cheddar cheese scone biscotti. Followed by a few savories.
To cleanse the palet, the guest were served a 2012 fresh Spring Angi Bai Cha, truly a wonderful China tea.
What would a birthday be without a birthday cake!
What a great party this was and Priscilla, now feels right at home and is looking forward to the next celebration tea.
