Taking Tea in Mechanicsburg

Before Linda and her family journeyed back to their old Kentucky home, they stopped by Sweet Remembrances for their very own personal afternoon tea party.  It was a joy to welcome her lovely family to Sweet Remembrances.

After a quick tour of the tea room, we began our tea. Everyone selected their own flavor of tea, and individual pots were brewed and served.   The first course featured a mixed berry salad with walnuts and feta cheese dressed with poppyseed dressing.  The three tiered tray consisted of a variety of tea sandwiches; sliced chicken with basil pesto mayonnaise, warm asparagus and blue cheese rollups, herbed spinach balls, cucumber with French style cheese spread, and swiss cheese and bacon melts on pumpernickel.  Traditional English Cream Scones, plain and with currants were accompanied with sweet cream and raspberry preserves.  The top tier held a trio of desserts: carrot cake muffins, strawberry shortbread cookies, and raspberry cream in puff pastry.

Sorry to see the day end, we bid farewell with hopes of a reunion again someday soon!

Such a lovely tea --- and a wonderful time with a friend. I'm glad you were able to share such delightful moments together.

As always, your tea table is amazing!

In a few short weeks, Linda will be my way.

We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon tea and visit to Sweet Remembrance's and the Rosemary House. A special "thank you" to Nancy and Angelica for this awesome afternoon tea experience. I promised GJ I will make the scones for him soon.
