Tea Party Photos

I was blessed last night to be joined by six of my women friends for a tea party at my home. I was also blessed that my team covered for me the night before, so that I could prepare!

A special thanks to the DH for making the scones and all the other help.

Here are a few photos. The menu is at the bottom.








Luminarias, a carry-over from my NM days















Tea table







The centerpiece is floating cranberries and candles.






Menu:

  • Savories: Pecan-stuffed dates, cucumber sandwiches with rosemary butter, dried fruit-cream cheese sandwiches, and Welsh rarebit
  • Scones: The DH's healthy scones (whole wheat, flaxseed meal, oatmeal, currants) with Devonshire cream and homemade jams
  • Sweets: Sweet stilton cheese with candied lemon peel, chocolate truffles from the Chocolate Emporium and blonde brownies

What a delightful evening you planned. If we lived a little closer to each other I could really get into the "tea" thing! Sheila

That sounds like a splendiferous tea party! Do you have a recipe for the stuff dates? I would love to try that.

This looks so pretty. Just looking at the photos I find myself wishing I was there enjoying the good food and girl-bonding conversations!
