Mother’s Day Tea 2015

 

Beth and Kitty

 

Once again, my sister and I pulled off another Mother’s Day Tea.

It was our best tea yet due to practice and to Pinterest.  Both of us have been pinning tea recipes like crazy.  Click here if you’d like to see my Pinterest board called “The Happy Tea Drinker.”  You’ll see where some of these ideas came from.

The Menu

Scones course:  Lavender white chocolate scones and cranberry orange scones served with lemon curd, raspberry preserves and ginger honey. I can’t tell you which I liked best.  They were both good!

The secret?  I bought the frozen scone dough from Tea with Thee by Victoria and just popped them in the oven for 20 minutes so they hit the table nice and hot.  Thanks to my friend, JoAnn, for the tip on that!  Sometimes you have to leverage your time to get it all done.  This is one job I subcontracted out and I’m glad I did.  They were fabulous.
