Girls from Mercy High School impeccably played in roles as servers delivering a three-course tea menu provided by Durham's Kim’s Cottage Confections. The lavish tea would mimic similar parties by Clarence and Katherine Wadsworth, original dwellers of the estate. The annual fundraiser would bring many guests out to help support the many programs the mansion offers.
Leaving the tea, it left this photographer thinking about her own dinner table. Perhaps it’s time to try just a bit harder in setting the table for Sunday evening’s supper. See the gallery to get inspired.
