You know what? I had a belated Valentine’s Day celebration. It was actually a birthday, Valentine’s Day, and anniversary celebration all thrown in together. But it actually doesn’t even matter what the occasion was– this was one of the most fun things I’ve done.
It took a little planning and time to bake up most all the goodies, but once that was all aside, throwing a tea party is really a cinch. You could really buy little treats at your local store too, if you don’t have the time to bake. (I recommend Trader Joes!)
– strawberry cupcakes with cream cheese frosting topped with fresh fruit (baked them 2 weeks ago and froze them– still super moist!).
-blueberry orange zest scones (doubled up on the orange zest!!!)
-Earl Grey shortbread cookies
-lemon dill cucumber finger sandwiches
-roasted bell pepper bleu cheese roast beef finger sandwiches
My boyfriend made:
-tomato ham finger sandwiches
-tomato lettuce turkey finger sandwiches
-tart, eclair, cannoli (Whole Foods)
-London Fog lattes (Earl Grey)
-Bliss Tea (Peppermint Tea Latte)
My mom joined in on the fun too, and we ended up cutting everything you see into even smaller portions so that we could taste test everything! It was such a fun experience and definitely cost far less than going to a tea party place!
What are your favorite tea party treats? Do share! 🙂
