Spring has sprung and seems to have flown by!
But before Spring leaves for the year I wanted to be sure to celebrate the warm days with an outdoor tea with friends! For the occasion I invited friends Wendy and Betty over and set the kettle on the burner!
For this tea I used my Lenox Butterfly tea set which seemed very fitting for a spring tea.
On the menu was peppered turkey tea sandwiches with honey mustard and avocado, white egg salad sandwiches with chives and lime mayonnaise, and ham and swiss tea sandwiches with kalamata olives and pickled bell peppers to start. The second course was mushroom turnovers, spanakopita with spinach, ricotta, and feta, and savory pastry bites with feta and caramelized onions. For desert we each got a mini fruit tart, a choice between raspberry cheesecake, vanilla bean cheesecake, or chocolate cheesecake, as well as a choice between pistachio macaron, key lime macaron, and raspberry macaron. For tea selections I had a green blooming tea with jasmine, as well as a decaf sweet coconut thai chai tea.
The tea and tea sandwiches I made myself. The savories I got from Trader Joe's. And the desserts I picked up from Whole Foods.
