Evening Tea - Willow Oak Herb Farm

We recently enjoyed an Evening Tea at Willow Oak Herb Farm in Severn, MD.  Tables and chairs were set up throughout the 40 acres farm, tucked in among the many theme gardens and out buildings scattered about the grounds.  We enjoyed seating in the little cabin, built by the owners husband.



We began our evening tea with a nice slice of warm quiche.  Quite flavorful and tasty, it was a prelude of what would be a nice variety of tea party treats.  Here, owner Maria Price-Nowakowski is offering the assortment of miniature tea sandwiches. 

Sweet little nosegays of herbs and flowers from the garden were presented to each guest.  Such a colorful and fragrant basket full of pretties!

 Cinnamon Chips scones with clotted cream and jelly was the next course served in a large wooden bowl.











Beautiful platters laden with miniature cheesecake and cookies were waiting to be shared with the garden guests.




 
A tasty little end to a memorable evening.

What a yummy looking tea time! I have often thought it would be fun to host a tea in the evening, but I never have. Hmm ...
