It was time to load up the basket and pack up the tea items. I also had delicate bone china tea cups and fragile glass wear that had to be carefully packed. I haven't "done" a traveling tea party in quite some time but it was time to resurrect the practice.
Doilies, Pepperidge Farm cookies, Socialbles, Carter's water crackers, Bluelost berry scones, and so much more!
Since this tea party had a decidedly British theme...I selected my David Copperfield Tea Pot. I received this tea pot from my daughter when she visited London.
If you are confused about this post, please see the last post, Tea Fit For A Queen It will explain all about this wonderful tea to commemorate Queen Elizabeth's 90th birthday.
I had to whip up some blueberry scones. They were delicious! recipe
We got everything packed and then off we went to Jane's sweet apartment to set up the tea.
Thanks to Lady Anna I had most everything I needed to have a authentic British Tea Party!
I just love this sweet little tea cup and saucer that was included in my "Tea Party in a box".
We served yummy chicken salad on croissants along with assorted sweets, and cucumber slices on crackers (garlic herb cream cheese with parsley spread). The white tea we served was Teavanna's Pineapple, Raspberry Luau. It was delicious!
We tried to carry out the Union Jack theme colors of red, white and blue. I asked everyone including myself to dress accordingly. Thankfully,I had 3 red hats! We also donned red, white and blue feathered boas... and why not? It was a lovely time. I believe we "did up" a proper British Birthday Tea for Queen Elizabeth II, she would have been proud to have been there herself. Thank you again, Lady Anna, for the amazing food and supplies to make it happen!
