Today was the much anticipated Un peu de thé et des Beaux Arts event with the Oregon Regency Society. We began the glorious afternoon at the Heathman Hotel’s Tea Court for high tea. Let me tell you, it was gourmet and luxurious. We were there for about two hours sipping loose leaf teas, eating delectable sandwiches, desserts, and heavenly scones, and basking in the glow of the 18th century. We then headed up the street, walking of course, to the Portland Art Museum for their La volupté du goût: French Painting in the Age of Madame de Pompadour exhibit. The art was truly amazing and took my breath away. I so wish these paintings could have talked, I can’t imagine the people they have seen and the history they witnessed. ::Sigh:: It was glorious. Here are some pictures of the event. Enjoy and God Bless!
Here we are at the Heathman’s Tea Room. Sigh!
I wish I could always live this way. God Bless!
