Last week we enjoyed a high tea experience with a few other friends. We were getting together to discuss one the American Girl books about Samantha and decided to combine it with a tea party.
My 8yo and I made these using this Alton Brown scones recipe and they were darn good, if we do say so ourselves! And did I mention Devonshire cream? This was my first time to make it. If I’d realized how easy it was to make, then… oh, better to not have known, I guess. But watch out world (and waist lines) here we come! We served these with Lemon Curd too – oh man, where they good!
We made some super yummy cucumber tea sandwiches too.
And oh yes, what would a tea party be without TEA?
There was much tea drinking and giggling and talking and over-all tea partying to be had all around!
After our formal “high tea” we made our own stationery to write letters on.
I don’t know about you, but I think this was a definite hit. *grin*
