Tea Party at the Palace

The Ambassador lives in a palace right by the Embassy. No, really -- it's called the Bosch Palace. It's on both Buenos Aires' and Argentina's lists of historic places, and is on the Secretary of State's Register of Culturally Significant Property.

I went to a tea party there on Tuesday, which was a lot of fun. Plus I love tea, and Teeson had some amazing mixes.

It was St. Patrick's Day -- the Ambassador and I were both sporting green.

Everyone is so patient with my limited "Castellano" (Spanish).

Teeson's "Lemon Flower" was my favorite. The palace's tea set was the perfect complement!

LOVE the dress! Do you mind sharing where you got it, or is it an Argentine secret?

Thank you!!

I bought the dress last year at Anthropologie to wear at my wedding "preception." (I didn't want him to see the wedding dress before the big day!) I'm wearing it in the photo on the right of my main blog page, which was taken after the party, about 12 hrs. before we got married.
