Candlelight Tea

We celebrated our Candlelight Tea last night at Sweet Remembrances. The tea room was aglow with the flickering lights of the candles.

The menu told the story of what was about to unfold.

The first course included a miniature Gouda Cheese Ball rolled in fresh parsley and accompanied with assorted crackers. A complimentary glass of Chablis or White Zinfandel was offered with the cheese and crackers.

Our sandwich selection included a warm Cheesy Artichoke Puffed Triangle, Olde English Sausage Rolls, Goat Cheese and Basil with Sun Dried Tomato Stars, Swiss Apple-Garlic Melt atop a sliced French Baguette, and Cranberry, Apple and Chicken Salad Triangle.

Next, we served a Traditional English Cream Scone, a slice of Almond Poppy Seed Tea Bread accompanied with Mock Clotted Cream, Lemon Curd, Strawberry Preserves and a Fresh Fruit Skewer.

For dessert, our guests enjoyed Golden Shortbread Stars, Buttery Pistachio Cookies, Chocolate Velvet Cheesecake, and a Petite Tiramisu.

Cheers to you friends!
May your New Year be blessed with Peace and Prosperity!
