Friends of Ed and Rose Byrne gather for a typical Englsih tea party at their Sooke home.

Girls host tea party to honour grandparents

Grace Dobie and Camille Byrne had been thinking about and planning the event for months.

July 6 dawned bright and clear in answer to the prayers of two young Sooke girls who planned a typical English tea party for a select group of invited guests to honour their grandparents.

Grace Dobie and Camille Byrne had been thinking about and planning the event for months. The event was held on the terrace at Ed and Rose Byrne’s Richview Drive home.

The morning was spent setting tables, tablecloths and chairs on the terrace. Tables were set with Royal Albert china and silverware.

As some 30 guests arrived, buffet tables were laid out with a variety of fingerling sandwiches, gateaux and a medley of English tea biscuits. Grace and Camille served proper English tea to the assembled guests.

Guests spent the afternoon mingling and chatting happily.

Grace and Camille plan to repeat the event next year.
