Dear guests,

 

Chers invités,

 

Would you like some tea?

 

Que diriez-vous d'une tasse de thé?

Yes?

 

Vous êtes tenté?

I apologize for the lack of light, but besides what the weather forecast lady said yesterday on TV, we're having a really cloudy day and the flash made even more awful pictures! Besides, the fact that the dining-room is still to be redone means I work with three dark orange walls and a dark brown one: it doesn't help!!! I tried not to show too much of the walls on the pictures, but I sometimes failed!!!

 

Toutes mes excuses pour le manque de luminosité, mais il fait vraiment très gris aujourd'hui et mon appareil réagit vraiment très mal à ce genre de lumière!

 

My first idea was to go for a very "white themed" tea and as I went to the florist, having in mind to buy white tulips, I completely fell in love with these roses:

Ma première idée était de faire une table toute blanche, mais je suis tombée amoureuse de ses roses au coloris un peu défraîchi...

 

 

So I changed my mind and went all white and pink instead...

Do you have a sweet tooth?

I'm sorry to admit that the macarons are not homemade... I don't work on Wednesdays so I was suppose to have time to cook. But yesterday I was called for a new job (my current job will be over in a few days) and I had to go visit the new school, meet the staff and all: I couldn't tell the principal "Sorry I can't come, I have to make sandwishes for a blogland tea party", could I?

 

Anyway, the macarons are from a lovely shop in Saint-Brieuc, where I stopped on my way back from the new school!

The light pink ones are filled with rose petal jam... I wish you could taste them!

Je dois avouer que les macarons ne sont pas faits maison... Mais cela est dû à une plutôt bonne nouvelle: j'ai un nouveau remplacement qui s'annonce à la rentrée des vacances. J'ai dû aller rencontrer le principal et visiter le collège (en fait, j'ai courru sur mes petits talons dans les couloirs derrière le principal, sans jamais le rattrapper!), du coup, peu de temps pour cuisiner!

Le macaron rose pâle est parfumé aux pétales de roses: je ne pouvais pas être plus dans le thème!!! Ils viennent d'une adorable boutique de Saint-Brieuc... Et je remercie en passant la gentille propriétaire qui m'a gardé tout mon dossier de la nouvelle école, que j'avais oublié sur son comptoir, toute absorbée que j'étais à choisir mes coloirs de macarons!!!

Strawberry macaron...

 

 

Yesterday evening, I had time to cook those little cakes, filled with raspberry jam...

Qui veut un petit gâteau fourré à la confiture de framboise, maison cette fois?

 

I had invited over a lovely lady, whose blog you can visit here, but she had to cancel for very good reason, so it's only a rain check...

 

Géraldine, ce n'est que partie remise, n'est-ce pas? Et ne t'inquiète pas, j'ai eu quelques invités surprise, finalement!

 

 

But I wasn't alone for that tea party after all...

How Alice In Wonderland, don't you think?

 

Des invités dignes du thé d'Alice au pays des merveilles, non?

Your tea party was so lovely, and I have never seen such beautiful macaroons as you served!! I am a retired teacher and I hope you will love your new job assignment.

Eh bien si, que veux-tu, je trouves que tu es douée pour la photo, la présentation et la pâtisserie. J'en mangerai bien, moi des petits cakes et des macarons ! J'espère que Shadow, le crapaud et
les petits oiseaux n'ont pas tout dévoré !
