Happy Mother's Day!

We celebrated Mother's Day in the tea room this weekend with Afternoon Tea at 1:00 on Saturday and again on Sunday. With the tables decorated mostly in pink, and a little gift for everyone (Artisan chocolates and a tea time charm), the scene was set for an extra special day.

Between preparing endless pots of tea, and plating a wide variety of tea time treats, there was a hustle in the kitchen that only afforded the opportunity to snap a quick picture of the tea sandwiches. The complete menu included:
Fresh Berries, Almonds, Feta Cheese & Spring Greens with Poppyseed Dressing
May Flowers
Queen Adelaide Ham & Chicken Salad Triangles
Strawberry Basil Brie Crostini
Veggies & Roasted Red Pepper Hummus on Puff Pastry
BLT Goat Cheese & Basil Bites
Pineapple & Kiwi Rounds with  Pecan Cinnamon Butter Edge
Traditional English Cream Scones
Cardamom Raisin Scones
Sweet Cream & Raspberry Preserves
Fresh Fruit Skewers
Lemon Curd Cheesecake
Petite Peanut Butter Pie
Peppermint Meltaways
With Love to Mother!

How beautiful - and what a great menu. "Lemon curd cheesecake" sounds like the ultimate dessert to me. I wish I were closer, too!
