For my own memory, and Reagan's, I wanted to write a note about some of the pieces we used for the tea.
The collection of China is the Noritake Sheridan pattern from Reagan's Great Great Grandmother Flora Clark Anderson. She was the mother of Esther Anderson Carlson, mother of Sherry Carlson LaBar, mother of Anna LaBar Lueker, mother of Reagan Lueker.
The handpainted pitcher and matching glasses came from Edna Phelps who was married to Reagan's Great Great Uncle George Matthews who was brother to her Great Grandma Helen Matthews LaBar. Helen was mother to Arthur T. LaBar, father of Anna LaBar Lueker mother of Reagan Lueker.
The Waterford Crystal goblets which were used are from Anna and Tim Lueker's wedding crystal.
The collection of sterling silver is the Royal Crest Promise pattern started by Sherry LaBar
