Meet the authors tea and book launch

I had such a wonderful time at our Meet the Authors Tea and "The Vintage Table" book launch this last Saturday, that I felt the need to start a blog. I would very much like to thank everyone involved in this event. Our guest authors, Jacqueline deMontravel and her editorial staff from Romantic Homes Magazine graciously chatted with each of our guests,while signing books. They lasted all day during two full luncheon teas. They were troopers. Our wonderfuly generous guests dug deep and raised over $600. for our chosen charity, Casa Teresa. We were blessed with so many beautiful donated door prizes from some very sweet merchants here in Old Towne Orange and surrounding communities. And, last but not least my staff did an outstanding job preparing and serving lunch and tea for almost 90 guests. Whew, it was a lot of work, but it was so worth it. One of our dear attendees held my hand on her way out and told me how she felt as though she had been nurtured. Wow, she has no idea how she touched my heart. When we created Paris In A Cup, the goal was to create an escape. A playhouse so-to-speak, for grown-ups. A place to feel at peace, if even for just an hour. Well now I am a blogger. Look out, you'll be hearing from me often. Bless you all. Cheryl
