Tea Anyone?

May is the month where Spring is in full bloom and it's right before the summer starts.  It's also a busy month of activities, such as proms, graduations, and of course, Mother's Day!   In fact, why not do something different this year...like hosting a Mother's Day Tea?

Here's the menu...

*Mini Scones filled with Heavy Whipped Cream or Clotted Cream & Jam
*Choice of Sandwiches - Chicken Salad,  Cucumber, Smoked Salmon,  and/or Watercress
*Bite-size Cakes, Cheese Cake, Cream Puff , Eclair or English Trifle
*Hot Tea (Earl Grey or fruit teas)

The bread used for the sandwiches should have the crust removed, butter spread on both sides & the  sandwiches should be cut in quarter squares, triangles or circles.
Hot tea with appropriate service to include, sugar cubes (and sugar sustitute), milk & thin lemon slice. When serving, make sure to ask the guest how they would like their tea.

People have been hosting tea parties for centuries.  You don't have to follow all the traditions, just good food, tea, and pleasant company is enough.  Mother's Day, or any day, this is a cute way to get the ladies together!
