We followed this up with afternoon tea at the Brown Palace Hotel. Tea is served in the lobby area to the dulcet strains of piano or harp. Our friendly pianist was quite accommodating and indulged Louisa's requests for songs from "Gigi" and "My Fair Lady."
We were served scones with jam and Devonshire cream, savory sandwiches, and small sweet treats. My "no sweets" rule went on hiatus for the afternoon. ;) Edmund got his first taste of scone crumbs and jam, then napped in my arms for the rest of the tea.
Our next stop was Denver Fabrics. Mom D. and Mom S. both made some purchases, but I exercised restraint as I still have fabrics from my last visit that haven't been sewn up. It was fun to look at all the gorgeous fabrics, though.
Flowers, tea, fabric. Sounds like a beautiful day to me!
