Mothers Day Tea at Ainsworth House – Oregon City, OR

Posted by Rosemary on May 10th, 2010

Ainsworth-House-Portland What a gorgeous gift the weather gave us for Mothers Day yesterday! We were lucky enough to spend sunny Sunday at the historic Ainsworth House and Gardens in Oregon City, where Earlene Grey, the Empress of Leaves herself, hosted the Inaugural Mothers Day Tea event. Earlene charmed a lovely group of fancily dressed mothers & daughters (even a few gracious husbands!) during the proper English tea with her unique and humorous poetry reading. Guests dined on a delicious teatime lunch whipped up on-site by fabulous Chef Sarah of The Red Hare , and the event even included an appearance by Senator Martha Schrader, who shared her own recent special tea time experience with First Lady Michelle Obama! We also especially enjoyed spending the day with the small group of fellow vendors with whom we set up a little foyer boutique outside the main tea party, including the delightful Marilyn Miller, owner of Marmalady’s – Tea Products to make the heart sing. The Ainsworth House and Gardens was the perfect host for such a decadent occasion, so it comes as no surprise that the enchanted venue is a favorite for local weddings. Last but certainly NOT least, we must give special thanks to our florist & studio neighbor Fieldwork, whose owner Megan Arambul put together the dazzling Mothers Day arrangement that graced our Mon Amour Photography table at the event. For the full Mothers Day Tea spread, head over to the gallery. (more…)
