Happy Birthday to the Queen!

I’m still catching up with blog posts from events that happened earlier this year. But last week I had a blast at one of my fav places, the London Tea Room, here in St. Louis. 

They had a special food and tea menu, with a special toast to the Queen. As usual, they did not disappoint with a grand selection of macaroons, petite sandwiches, scones, cheeses, and sweets. Even my plate was pretty!

I was grateful to borrow an awesome beefeater outfit and bobby hat that really livened up my mood after a long day at work. I had to get at least one good guard shot out front.

Music was provided by Sweetie and the Toothaches, a wonderful bluesy, swing, authentic retro music group.

Special thanks for my friend Gena Ellis for providing the ticket, pictures and laughs! 

Cheers to Jackie James and the brilliant staff at The London Tea Room for a party well done and fit for a queen. More pictures, enjoy!
