Holiday Workshop & Afternoon Tea

Our Holiday Workshop & Tea event is this Sunday and Monday. Sunday afternoon saw a small amount of snow falling throughout the event which added a tranquil beauty to the afternoon. This annual event is a holiday tradition for many of our guests. This year they crafted pressed flower pictures and stationary using pressed rosemary and other colorful little flowers and greens. Following the craft, the tea room is quickly turned around for the holiday tea. First course included an Apple Cranberry Salad with dried cranberries, almond slivers, Romano cheese and a drizzle of fresh cranberry dressing.
The sandwiches included a Cranberry Apple Chicken Salad Triangle, Swiss Apple Melt Crostini, Spicy Pimiento Cheese Florette, Apple & Blue Cheese Wrap, and a Walnut Sandwich.
Scones featured the Traditional English Cream Scone and a White Chocolate Apricot  Scone with Sweet Cream, Strawberry Jam, and Fresh Fruit.

Dessert included a Miniature Chocolate Cheesecake topped with a decorative holly leaf, Raspberry Cream Puff, and a White Chocolate Cranberry Shortbread Cookie. So festive and fun, let the celebrating begin!

So glad you shared at Friends Sharing Tea!

I am not sure my other comment worked so I will say something different here in case there are two. Your Afternoon Tea goodies always look fabulous. I wonder if I will ever get to Pennsylvania. When I was in high school I went to camp in Stroudsburg. Those were the days. I am so glad you shared at Friends Sharing Tea!

Love a good party and this sounds just perfection. The chocolate cheesecake sounds like something I need to try and so festive with the holly leaf.
