A Doll-lightfull Tea

We recently held a special event at Sweet Remembrances where everyone was invited to bring their favorite doll to tea.  Susanna shared a doll that was given to her by our mother.  She also brought Cedar's Build-A-Bear, lovingly called Camo-Bear and Angelica's American Girl Doll, Kaya.  Nancy shared her Barbie doll, a treasure purchased in 1963 with birthday money from a dear aunt. 

Our menu included a cup of chilled Cantaloupe soup garnished with cream, coconut, pecans, and a mint leaf.  Sandwiches included a cucumber sandwich,  a blue cheese and pear doll sandwich with a walnut skirt, sliced chicken with basil pesto mayonnaise, zucchini tea bread with mascarpone cheese, and a petite egg salad topped with a 'dolly'.

There was a scone course that included traditional English cream scones and lemon poppyseed scones with fresh fruit and assorted toppings. Dessert featured a soft lemon verbena cookie, apricot almond triangles, and a chocolate cupcake with a cream filling.
Treva Smith, past president of the Central Pennsylvania Doll Collectors facilitated the sharing.  She brought Laura which she acknowledged is lovingly spoiled!  Our guests shared very special dolls, some from their childhood, others acquired later over the years.  There is a special place in all of our hearts for our dollies!

Another special event with tea. Each tea is so innovative and fun. I think this one would be particularly fun to bring a doll to tea as an adult. I would have a difficult time choosing which doll to bring.

I love that you even managed to include the doll theme into the tea sandwiches!
