Marbucks’ High Tea Party raises funds for women’s shelter
Saturday, September 3rd, 2016
On Saturday, August 20th, island ladies donned their best frocks and fun hats and headed to Marbucks Coffee Shop, where a fabulous High Tea party awaited. Held to raise funds for a women’s and children’s home, the party was truly spectacular and very successful.
Organizers Rachel Brock and Marlene Houghton thought of every detail, from the elegant white tent to the beautifully mismatched china. Gorgeous bouquets of hydrangeas (a wonderful donation from Brock’s family), white roses and greenery added a touch of whimsy to the tablescape. Casa Picasso’s servers poured champagne and rosé liberally as the ladies enjoyed delightful nibbles from the Island Chef featured scones, mini beef wellingtons, salmon and cucumber sandwiches and more. Of course, there was tea to spare!
Ladies enjoyed a delightful evening of camaraderie, bidding on a variety of silent auction items. Even hats were available for purchase if one felt bare-headed! For two hours, the High Tea Party was a time to relax, mingle and enjoy. Congratulations Mar, Rachel and all the wonderful sponsors, for putting on a great party! We cannot wait for the next one!
