Children's Tea Parties!!!

Hosting children's tea parties are my favorite...

On April 17, 2011, we hosted a children's tea party at a Brentwood home for Avery's 9-th birthday.

My staff and I had so much fun decorating the tables before the guests arrived.The tables were decorated with pink table runners, beautiful cake stands, and with vintage English bone china.The floral arrangements were also created by our creative staff.

It was another successful children's tea party. Everyone enjoyed tea time with their friends and experienced the tea-time delicacies; the scones, lemon curd, blackberry preserve, clotted cream, and fresh fruits.

We served three different kinds of teas; our favorite - sweet mint, English lavender, and the birthday girl's favorite, the Chamomile tea.

The finger tea sandwiches were also served at the same time. The four finger sandwiches were the famous cucumber, peanut butter and jelly, tuna, and turkey and mustard. Everyone's favorite was the peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

After the tea, everyone got busy decorating their own cupcakes with vanilla icing and the colorful spring-time sprinkles.

Overall, everyone had a great time. I was amazed to see all the little girls added their cubes in their cups and patiently waiting for their tea to be served. It seemed like all the little girls passed the tea etiquette class before they sent their RSVP cards.

Enjoy some picture!

We would love to share this very lovely poem that we received from one of our clients.

On one special day in the afternoon,
Finger sandwiches and cookies shaped like the moon,
Were spread around the table so intricately,
A delightful experience so worth it to see.
The English teacups glistened under the light,
And the assorted edibles felt perfectly right...
From the beginning until the very last bite,
The grand selection fulfilled every appetite.
While warm socializing was sure taking place,
They indulged on their tea at the perfect pace
To the aroma of tea the guests became loyal
And experienced the true definition of royal.

Our Blueberry Cream Scones

When hosting a tea party, do not forget to bake the scones.For the best results, the right recipe should be used.A cookie cutter is a must to cut out equal rounds from the dough so the scones will come out to be the same size when they are fresh out of the oven. It is always a great idea to lightly brush the top of the scones with egg mixture for the scones to turn golden brown.

It is great to know that many different things can be used for unique flavors and for a better taste such as cranberries, blueberries, nuts, chocolate chips, and more.Our famous blueberry cream scones are one of a kind. Using fresh berries adds an extra freshness and makes a big difference than using dried or frozen berries. You can also add cinnamon to your favorite scones to take the satisfaction of your taste buds to a higher level.Finally, do not forget to serve clotted cream, fruit preserve,and lemon curd with the scones. You can use variety of fruit preserves from the market such as blackberry preserve (my favorite), strawberry preserve, apricot preserve or whatever your guests would enjoy the most.

Share your recipees with us and tell us about your baking experience.
