Halloween Tea - 2016

The Halloween Teas that are offered on several Sundays in October are always some of our most popular teas. The gardens have been haunted for the season, and we encourage our guests to stroll the gardens before and after the tea. Guests are also invited to come in costume, and many play along.
We had fun again this year serving these cute little chocolate acorns. Everyone enjoys them, and they are so easy to pop in your mouth!

The menu for the Halloween Tea included the following:
A Witches Brew of Caraway & Tomato Soup was the first course served at our teas. That was accompanied by a warm and Toasty Ghosty sandwich. Unlimited pots of tea are served throughout the event.

The nights are getting pretty chilly around here, and the last of the fresh herb bouquets are on the tables before the first frost shuts down the gardens for the season. Miniature pumpkins and gourds add to the flavor of the season. Tiny paper bats flutter about the forks.
Hauntingly delightful tea sandwiches included:
RIP - Almond Chicken Salad Caskets

Black Spider Ham Salad Rounds

Don't be a Scaredy Cat Pimento Sandwich

Cyclops' Eye, if you dare

Pineapple & Pecan Acorn 

The scone course featured Traditional English Cream Ghost of a Scone and Pumpkin Pecan Scone, both served with Sweet Cream and Lemon Curd. Alongside the scones, we served Poison Apples and Spiced Caramel Dip.

and finally, Desserts to DIE for:
Gingerbread Ghosts
Pumpkin Patch Cake
Ghoulish White Chocolate Pretzel
And what a special treat to welcome several of the women that were on the Michigan Tea Tour! They journeyed all the way from Michigan to attend an Afternoon Tea at Sweet Remembrances. Linda, Lori, Joanie, (Nancy), and Phyllis joined in the fun for our Halloween Tea!
Following tea, our guests are invited to visit Rosemary House and to stroll around the haunted herb gardens.

Congratulations on a fun and special Halloween Tea! I shared the photos with Austin and Glenn this morning, and they loved it, too!

I love all the themed teas you do, but this one looks extra special. How fun to have Phyllis and gang come all the way from Michigan. How I would love walking in your spooky garden too.

I was SO happy I could be present at your Halloween tea, and surprised to see our picture on your blog. My post about your tea will be coming next week. I'm behind as my new computer had to be taken back to the store for adjustments three times! Grrrr! Your Halloween tea - as well as all of your teas - was wonderful.
