This time last Sunday I was getting ready to have my first ever Tea Party. So this morning as I am having my first Tea of the Day I thought I would share with all of you some pictures from the Tea Party.
We had such delicious treats even if I do say so myself, but I am quite sure I am safe in saying that after hearing all the compliments last Sunday. The beautiful bouquet of Tulips on the table are from my wonderful husband. Even though it was Sunshiny outside last Sunday it was definitely on the cooler side and he walked to the store to get the last few items that I needed to make my Party a success. He said that these Tulips just said to him "They had to come to the Tea Party as well" So he brought them along too.
We made these Salmon Croquettes Canapes. Ed made the dip that is on top of them and they have a sprig of dill inserted. The dip has both Lemon and Lime in it.
This is a different angle of looking at the Canapes. Peaking through the "Pink Tulips"
A beautiful platter of Orange Marmalade Thumbprint Cookies.... mmmm it looks like somebody has already tried one of these. I wonder who that could have been......Ed????
These scrumptious looking bars are called Key Lime bars and what a puckering experience.
This is a beautiful shot of the 2 tiered platter Ed made for me for the Tea Party. Now I have a tiered platter that matches my dinner ware. He is so sweet to me.
The only treat that we didn't make at this Tea Party were the Lemon Tarts. I had another kind of tart I was going to make but ran out of time. All in all I think that I can say that this Tea Party was a success.
Can you guess what is the common element besides the tea in Party?
So much so we are planning a Mother's Day Tea Party. Mothers and Daughters are coming for a Saturday afternoon Tea. I will let you know how that Party goes.
Until We Blog Again,
Roscoe and Linda
