Tea Party Preparations

We are having a Tea Party tomorrow and today was all about the preparations. Not only did we get out feminine dishes and linens, but we shopped for groceries started preparing the foods. We are making fresh fruit tarts and egg sandwiches,
and pound cake rounds,
and cupcakes.
We will also be serving scones with clotted cream, strawberries, three different kinds of tea, and Elderflower cordial.
All this was the idea of Teen2. You know her; she is my Halo playing, anti-dress, anti-makeup, tomboyish daughter. I honestly don't know what has come over her, but I think she may be turning into a girl, because she wants everyone to wear dresses and hats, and eat tarts and cucumber sandwiches, and drink tea and play croquet. Will wonders never cease?
We will let you know how this Tea Party Amongst The Oaks turns out. Stay tuned...

I need details about this tea party and lots of pictures! Please keep me in the loop. I was thinking of having a Spring tea with my girls, they are college aged and my oldest is a married mom herself! I have a book on having a tea party with some recipes but... please e mail me if you would be so kind! Thanks and have a lot of fun! I am glad your daughter is turning into a wonderful young lady! :)

I think the Halo website you were looking for is, or even perhaps, :D

I am pea green with envy! Your tea party sounds absolutely heavenly!

Every so often my sister and I whip up a small proper tea of our own. Come to think of it, we haven't done it in a while...

Where, exactly, does one get Elderflower cordial?

I cannot wait for snaps!
