A Halloween Tea

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).
The Scone course included Traditional English Cream Scones in the shape of ghosts and Pumpkin Pecan Scones served with Green Grape Worms. The 'eyes' for the ghost were currant pieces while the eyes for the worms were mini chocolate chips held in place with a touch of icing. This plate captured everyone's attention when it was served!


And for dessert, there were Gingerbread Cupcake Brains, Candy Corn Cookies, and Lemon Tartlet Ghosts.

Happy Halloween!

What a fun Halloween Tea. Love your food creativity! I wish Sweet Remembrances wasn't 500 miles from where I live, so I could attend every tea you host.
