Sweet Remembrances Mother's Day Tea

Mother's Day celebrations in Sweet Remembrances Tea Room were held on Sunday. Sweet little herb plans, wrapped in foil with a teapot shaped caddy attached served as both the centerpiece for the table and a little gift for each attendee. A printed menu with a few of mom's favorite expressions were placed on each table. 
Clean Up Your Room! Wait until your father gets home! Call me when you get there! and I love you! 
Any of those sound like familiar refrains from your youth?

Before the Afternoon Tea began, guests selected their tea from an extensive tea list. Assorted large and small teapots were shared among the tables. Once tea was served, the Afternoon Tea was served, beginning with a fresh Lemon Caesar Salad topped with garlic croutons and Parmesan cheese.

Individual sandwich plates were served next which featured our Queen Adelaide Ham and Chicken Salad Triangles, a warm Rolled Asparagus Sandwich with pistachio nuts and bacon bits, a Petite Tart Shell filled with piped cream cheese and Super Sassy Pepperelly (a specialty item sold in The Rosemary House), May Flower Sandwich with a hint of almond and rose geranium flavors, Roast Beef with Cucumber, Radishes and Herbed Goat Cheese, and a Skewer with Tortellini, Tomato and Baby Mushroom.

Scones, always served fresh from the oven, featured Traditional English Cream and Cinnamon Chip with Sweet Cream and Raspberry Preserves alongside Fresh Fruit.

And the little trio of desserts included Chocolate Glazed Poppyseed Cake, Miniature Key Lime Pie, and Raspberry Shortbread Cookies.

We hope you enjoyed a very special Mother's Day!

This sounds like one of the best afternoon tea menus yet -- especially love the great variety of sandwiches. And yes, I do recall my mom saying all of those things, so it appears that our mothers were operating out of the same playbook!
