Mother’s Day festivities abounded in Niagara-on-the-Lake last weekend.

One of the popular attractions was at the picturesque Queenston Public Library on Saturday afternoon and featured high tea accompanied by a wreath-making session.

Shannon Troupe, owner of Lady Lavender Florals and the afternoon’s hostess, had several types of tea and treats ready for her full group of crafters. 

Granddaughters, daughters, mothers and grandmothers filled the library and shared smiles over tea and crafts. 

Ten-year-old Audrey Martin accompanied her grandma Maureen Adams. The two are no strangers to crafting.

“We do a lot of crafts at home, but we’ve never made wreaths before,” Adams said.

Marissa Damude was also new to wreath-making.

She found out about Mother’s Day high tea after attending Lady Lavender Floral’s last session. 

“I’ve never done wreath-making, but the last session was wonderful,” she said.

Damude was joined by her mother Melissa Collison, along with Felicia Mortensen and her mom, Tammy Haringa. 

Mortensen said this is sort of her first Mother’s Day as “almost” a mother: she and her group were celebrating her pregnancy along with the special day.
