Mother's Day Afternoon Tea ~ 2009

Our Afternoon Tea for Mother's Day featured a Savory Cheese Spread with Assorted Crackers. This was also accompanied by Mixed Fresh Fruit with a Sour Cream Topping.

Our sandwich course included a variety of tasty morsels. Fresh Strawberry Bruschetta, a Cucumber and Radish Herbal Heart, a Sweet & Savory Orange Ham Muffin, Chicken & Olive Salad in Pastry Shells, and a Golden Rod Sandwich (cheesy layer and apricot layer) completed the sandwich plate.
Today's Scones included Traditional English Cream Scone and Orange Almond Scone. These were served with True Devon Cream, Mock Clotted Cream, Strawberry Preserve and Lemon Curd. Orange Slices and Strawberries with cinnamon sweetened Mascarpone Cheese garnished the plate.
For dessert, we served Mother's Day Floral Bonnets, Raspberry Mousse atop Pound Cake and Chocolate Almond Truffle topped with Chocolate covered coffee bean.
Many many bottomless pots of tea were brewed for the event.
Happy Mother's Day!

Your tea looks beautiful and sooo good. I had a little hat at a tea room on Mother's Day too. I will write about it soon.

What a delectable tea menu. I visit tea rooms wherever I travel and this looks like one of the best I've seen. Wish I could visit. Thanks for the great photos.
