An Afternoon Tea - It's in the Bag!

We recently held a special themed event at Sweet Remembrances where we featured purses and handbags. Included in this special day was a program about purses and an afternoon tea. The first course was a Romaine Lettuce with Mixed Berries, Toasted Pecans and Feta Cheese. It served as a Carryall for Raspberry Poppyseed Dressing.

The sandwich course included a Black Bean & Corn Reticule, What's on the Bottom of Your Purse? Baguette, Warm Artichoke & Cheese Wallets, Tomato Rosemary Muffin Clutch, and an Almond Chicken Salad Handbag with fresh chive handle.

The little purse stood upright!
While our guests were enjoying the assortment of sandwiches, the scones were baking in the oven, with fragrant aromas wafting through the tea room. The scone course always includes the Traditional English Cream Scone along with a second flavor. We featured an Orange Pecan Scone for this event accompanied with Fresh Orange Slices and Strawberries, Sweet Cream, Orange Curd, and Strawberry Preserves.

And dessert included a YSL Designer Cookie, Pretty in Pink Pocketbook Cupcake, and Chocolate Almond Truffles.

I just love this tea, the menu, the names of each item and most of all the theme. Did you know I have a "thing" for purses. A girl can never have too many pretty and functional purses!

Your menu is just perfect! How I would have enjoyed this tea time. Love the purse with the chive handle.

My mind jumped to brown-bag tea parties. Now wouldn't that be an interesting one? Your party looks lovely!

What a very clever theme. Love the food names and presentations. Great idea for a Mother's Day tea.
