Planning a Tea Party - the Tea Drinking Kind

Kate and I have decided to host a summer tea party. The theme we decided on is "Roses". One of my ideas is to give tea cups filled with goodies as party favors. Kate wants to invite a couple of ladies from work, and I have a few good friends I want to invite. The main thing now is to settle on a date.

As for menu items, I am thinking that we will have Karen Sharp's grandmother's recipe of Apricot Tarts and one of Kate's wonderful cheese cakes. Karen graciously loaned me her collection of English tea cups and her grandmother's recipe. I am sooo excited to make them. I had one she made and they are DELICIOUS!

More to come later.

This is a new thing for me and I am hoping it will be a fun challenge to keep me blogging.
