A Easy Black Skirt From Talbot’s
Here is “What I used to be Wearing”…
A easy black skirt from Talbot’s, a green shantung silk blouse from who-knows-the place (positively from a Southern store although), my pearls, and a cute petite Ferragamo pocketbook.
I really like this little Ferragamo pocketbook…it would not hold a lot…but it’s tres cute!
My trusty Ferragamo pumps (I promise I do produce other sneakers y’all…), gold Rolex watch, pearl earrings and bracelet, and my Cartier marriage ceremony band.Let’s go inside for tea…within the Lobby Lounge of the Ritz. Evidently, everything is beautifully appointed right down to the last detail! Afternoon Tea on the Ritz-Carlton is a ritual steeped in tradition because the hotel opened in 1985. Tea is served utilizing nice Wedgewood china, decorated within the delicate “India” pattern. Every detail of the service and its presentation is attended to with the utmost care to make sure that every expertise on the Ritz becomes a treasured memory.
In fact, there was a pianist playing delicate music on the baby grand…just excellent for Afternoon Tea. Now y’all know this gentleman never tires of watching all the prissy ladies strolling through the Lobby of the Ritz!
The straightforward, but elegant tablesetting. Notice the crisp white linens, and that the cup handle is placed in the 4 o’clock position and the fold of the napkin is closest to the plate.
I selected to take the standard Tea Service, which consisted of freshly steeped free leaf tea and a selection of dainty tea sandwiches, freshly baked scones, and fruit tartlets and pastries. Two teas had been served whith this service–the very professional server Dominique advised the Vanilla Rooibos and i chose the Thunderbolt Darjeeling. The Rooibos is a caffeine-free herbal infusion, not a tea. The vanilla beans gave the rooibos just the precise sweet taste. The Darjeeling (champagne of teas) was a really brisk tea with a trace of muscatel. Here is the tiered tea tray with all of the goodies…just for Miss Janice! Whereas enjoying my tea, I practiced every dining etiquette rule I’ve ever identified and I must say, it was so good to be surrounded by others who have been doing the same! It goes with out saying…there have been no pinkies raised in this place!
The Ritz even has their very own logo of the lion and crown on the tea tray!
Sugar cubes, a should for Afternoon tea…
Devonshire cream and fruit preserves have been served with the scones and though I did not style the preserves…aren’t the little containers just too cute!
Now y’all know I merely must award the Ritz-Carlton “5 Silver Spoons.” Thanks to the waitstaff to your impeccable customer service!
Congratulations to the Ritz-Carlton, Naples, Florida…
