Members of the New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter of the Red Hat Society in Alamogordo, New Mexico were the first customers of the new Friendship Tea House on Saturday, February 10, 2018.
This lovely tea house is Barb Frick's dream come true and she is a grand hostess and an excellent cook as well. We were treated to scones with Devonshire Cream, various sandwiches, cookies, fruit on a skewer, deviled eggs, gelatin salad, potato salad, an assortment of teas and her award winning cake.
We took a tour of this adorable tea house which, besides the large room with a long table, includes a room decorated for children's birthday tea parties. When you walk down the hall from this, there is a large closet which she calls the wardrobe room with hats, gloves, scarves, jewelry, etc. for little girls to dress up in for their tea party. The back room (she calls it the sun room) has a huge round table for playing games, cards, or arts and crafts. There is a galley kitchen all shiny new and Barb's darling husband assists her.
You may book a tea by appointment only by calling Barb at 605-360-8800 (she moved here from South Dakota) and as she says, "Pour yourself a memory".

Thanks to Barb for taking the picture of me with the cake.
This is all I have to say for now.
