Blooming Bonnets Tea a delicious success!

Eighty-five ladies gathered on Mercer’s Courtyard Garden, May 12, for The Mercer Society’s inaugural tea service held in joint celebration of National Public Gardens Day and Mother’s Day. Tasty tidbits, fun prizes, great conversation, delightful entertainment, good company and absolutely beautiful weather made the day and  the event a “must do” again.

Mrs. Janet Cagle and daughters, Elizabeth and Victoria co-chaired the festivities awarding prizes for The Most Fashionable Bonnet, Best Blooming Bonnet and the Most Creative Bonnet. The ladies in attendance were serenaded to by Double Infinity, an a cappella quartet, part of The Statesmen Chorus.  And, Hector Silva Studio set up his camera in a delightful outdoor garden studio where the ladies were treated to photos made to capture the memory of this delightful day.
