Serenity Tea Room ~ Maryland

August always includes a visit to a new tea room, a special birthday treat! This year, we headed south to Frederick, MD, for the Royal Tea at Serenity Tea Room. Angelica enjoyed the sparkling apple cider with the sweet strawberry garnish. A choice of chilled soup options included Strawberry (pictured here), Mango, or Cucumber. Hot or Iced Teas were also selected, and their signature Strawberry Iced Tea is shown here.
Salad was next and featured mixed greens, cranberries, blue cheese and a tasty vinaigrette.The three tiered tea tray was presented with finesseand included a pleasant variety of sandwiches and savories, warm scones, and beautiful sweets.
Egg Salad squares, cucumber rounds, chicken and pecan mounds, a tomato pesto savory, and a flavorful shrimp savory completed the sandwich selections.
The Royal Tea concluded with a chilly Mango Sorbet. And, for the birthday girl, a sweet little floral shaped brownie with the stem and leaves piped in chocolate. What a fun little extra touch!
Joining Susanna, Angelica, and Nancy were friends Mary Jane from OH and Pat from MD. Birthday celebrations are indeed memorable when celebrated with family and friends.
