Pumpkin Tea Party

One great way to celebrate the glowing fall colors of orange, green and gold is to hold a Pumpkin Tea Party.  So we did!

Sticking with those colors and traditional fall foods was the order of the day.

Anytime is the perfect time for a tea party, in my opinion, but when the weather starts to turn brisk, that’s when the comfort of a warm cup of tea is most appreciated.

 

Savories

Cucumber Sandwiches
Salmon mousse on cucumber slices
Turkey, apple and cheese sandwiches
Olive Nut sandwiches
Cheese Straws
Pumpkin Butter Goat Cheese open-faced sandwiches

  

 

Scones

Cranberry and orange
Apple and cheddar

 

And we also served shortbread cookies for dessert.  That was all we wanted after such a big meal!

 

Teas

Bettys Sapphire Blue Tea
Piper & Leaf’s Pumpkin Moonshine Tea

 

More menu ideas from the bounty of a fall harvest to consider in the future:

* Blueberries, blackberries, cranberries, raisins, grapes
* Butternut squash, sweet potatoes, beets, parsnips
* Pecans, walnuts or other nuts
* Dark pumpernickel or rye bread
* Brie cheese, blue cheese
* Cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice

What else would you add?
