Tea For Three

I had my dear friend Michelle and her teenaged daughter over tonight for tea.  We talked costumes and photos and all kinds of creative goodness.  :)  Here is the table I set for us:

On the rectangular tray: Fall snack cakes, sliced angel food cake
(to go with the strawberries and whipped cream), apple slices.
One the blue plate: Pumpkin bread.

Top: Turtle chocolate mini cupcakes with caramel filling
Bottom (counter-clockwise from left): Apricot pastries,
chocolate topped orange Pims, fig newtons, pumpkin scones.
Our tea was a variety of black teas from Twinings: English Breakfast, Irish Breakfast, Earl Grey and Lady Grey.  We're looking forward to having tea again next week! :)


  1. what a spread! a real grown up tea party =)

  2. That looks absolutely yummy! I think I just gained three pounds from looking at those pictures...

  3. I tried hard to be healthy, with the fresh fruit and the pumpkin bread. But alas, pumpkin bread right out of the oven merits butter on it. And the strawberries just begged for angel food cake and whipped cream. And it all sort of digressed from there... LOL

  4. Neat. How much tea did you drink? And steeped by the pot? Or by the cup? Out of curiosity.

  5. Myself, just one cup, Earl Grey, 2 cubes of sugar and a splash of cream. I do it by the cup so each guest can pick which tea they want to try. :)
