Many of our guests at our recent series of Halloween Teas arrived dressed in the playful spirit of the season. It's always fun to see how creative they are.
Once everyone is seated, the Afternoon Tea begins. A Witches Brew of Butternut Squash and Apple soup accompanied by a Witchy Breadstick was the first course. Dried rosemary leaves are used to create the hairy knuckles and a sliced almond becomes the fingernail.
The sandwiches included French Style Cheese Spread Eyeballs (using edible wafer paper), RIP Cheddar Pimiento Coffins, Waldorf Chicken Salad on Pumpkin Bread, Cyclops Eye (olive spirals), Roasted Red Pepper Deviled Eggs, and 'Take a Bite of the Apple' Brie Sandwich (served warm).
And for dessert, there were Gingerbread Cupcake Brains, Candy Corn Cookies, and Lemon Tartlet Ghosts.
