The last Saturday in October, we had tea at my sister's house. My sister hosts fabulous teas, and this one was no exception. Michael and I were given a cute little love seat to sit on while we had tea. Perfect for snuggling together and enjoying tiny delicious treats.
The view from the love seat. Don't you adore the flowers? And the red fall leaf that is protecting our sparkling black cherry water? And yes, the pansies in the wee tussy mussies by our places are real!
First up, cream scones with chocolate chips and gingerbread cinnamon scones.
Next course was hot apple soup, replete with oak leaf crouton and little cinnamon muffin with crumbly topping, just perfect for nibbling between sips of soup.
Then, the Tower of Yummy Goodness came to the table.
It was hard to ignore the sweets on top and start with the savories, but we managed.
Time to switch from black tea to herbal...and dive into the sweets. Not literally dive. But I wanted to.
Just take a look at the teensy layers in the orange cream petit four.
|Nobody, but NOBODY, does tea like my sister!|
And hey, if you're in Atlanta, she has upcoming Christmas teas on December 3rd and 10th. Check out her blog for contact info. Scroll past the Fall tea menu and you'll see the invite with dates and prices.
