Oceana Whispers Floral Boutique was extremely honored this past weekend to donate all of the flowers for a lovely traditional English tea, presented by the Milton District Hospital Auxiliary. The beautiful event was held in a gorgeous century farmhouse and the tables were exquisitely designed. The menu was a selection of sandwiches, truffles, angel cakes, scones with an assortment of fine jams, devonshire clotted cream and English Ringtons Orange Pekoe Tea. Catering was generously donated by La Rose Italian Bakery & Delicatessen.
The Friendship Tea was to honour longtime supporter and cherished volunteer, the late Rita Ward.
