Election Day Afternoon Tea

This past Sunday we celebrated an early Election Day Tea in Sweet Remembrances coupled with a program on Fashions and Fads of Elections presented by April Thomas of Fashions Revisited. The tea room set the scene with red-white-and-blue place settings and floral arrangements.

The menu quietly announced the coming courses. "By Popular Vote, the winning Salad is a combination of cherry tomatoes, cucumber, radishes, Feta cheese, and Chef Tim's Dressing."
"Celebrate Election Day and Afternoon Tea Sandwiches 
with high spirits and great positivity!" 
The sandwiches included an Apricot and Apple chicken Salad on a party roll with a flag, a triangular Sliced Turkey with Parsley Shallot Mayonnaise, Veggie Confetti Rounds with a turnip cut in the shape of a star, Chutney Pear Sandwich on pumpernickel, and Toasted Apple and Swiss Cheese Melt.

"Voting is our right and our responsibility. Please Vote!" 

This course featured a slice of Lemon Blueberry Bread and an Apple Cinnamon Scone with Sweet Cream. There was a medley of red-white-and-blueberries (strawberries, bananas, and blueberries) topped with caramel cream and red Pineapple Sage blossoms in full bloom in the garden now.

And for dessert, "Your Vote Counts! Vote for One!"
We offered a Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake (I), a Donkey Shortbread Cookie (D), and an Elephant Sugar Cookie (R).                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   
It's Election Day today! Please Vote!

What a clever theme. I would not have thought to do something this. It does help to lighten the tension of the whole thing by having a very special teatime.
