Evening Tea Party

 This past week, my granddaughter, Cissy, spent four nights with me while her Mom was out of town on business.  We had so much fun, and for one of those evenings we were invited to a LA Tea DA! tea party at a nearby church.  All the tables were decorated to a theme, and they were so pretty.

The friend that invited us to the tea party decorated our table.  Doesn't it look pretty?  We all had party favors with a rose corsage in the front envelope of the little box.  Also included in the darling box, were various teabags.

The tables were numbered because we voted on our favorite one.  Cissy and I also loved this one that had a fairy garden theme.  We  had to leave early in order to get Cissy home for bed, and we didn't find out which table won.  Several of the ladies would ask Cissy if she liked a certain a food,  and she was honest, and said, "I'm just a child".  I have to say that her favorite thing was the strawberry mini cupcake.  Our hostess (or "Mum") for our table fixed a plate of sweets for Cissy to take home.    We had a wonderful evening!

Our menu for the tea party was:

Savories:

Tomato Tart
Three Cheese Spiral
Cheese Pennies
Pear Walnut on Cinnamon Raiisin
English Cucumber Mint on White
Curried Chicken Salad on Whole Grain

Scone: 

Strawberry, Lavender & White Chocolate
Devonshire Cream
Strawberry Jam

Sweets:

Apricot-Almond Blondie (GF)
Decadent Brownie Bites
Strawberry & Cream Mini Cupcakes
Herbal Tea Bag Cookies


I am sharing this with these lovely parties:
Thank you for your visit!  xo
