2012 Nutcracker Tea

Our 2012 Nutcracker Tea was held December 8th and featured all things wonderful from the classic Nutcracker Ballet.  Gardenin' Angel, Ann Hallock, shared her extensive collection of Nutcrackers for the event and the Pueblo West Girl's Choir entertained us with a collection of Christmas Carols.  Each guest went home with a whimsical, Nutcracker keepsake ornament and deliciously sinful, boxed Christmas Truffle.

From the opening buffet to the gourmet four course tea, the menu was a perfect fit for the Holiday season, and beautiful Jasmine flowers opened on each table during the course of the meal.
