I’ve recently handed out invitations to the ladies in my Bible study for a St. Patrick’s Day tea party. (The alternative was a $30 per person party at a nearby herb farm.)
A tea party starts with tea so I’ve decided to serve two types, both decaffeinated :
an herbal tea and decaffeinated Irish breakfast tea.
I plan to serve some tried and true food in addition to adding a few new to me items.
On the savory side:
- corned beef on oat bread,
- chicken salad sandwiches,
egg saladsmoked salmon sandwiches,
- cucumber sandwiches.
On the dolce side:
- petit fours (if I can find them),
- lemon curd in meringue shells aka Pavlovas,
- puff pastry mini fruit tarts.
In addition I’ll probably have some pretzel thins for a taste of salty/crunchy and some chocolate-covered-caramel candy.
I know Sug and I can set up this tea party in the morning and serve it in the afternoon. Charlie will be our dedicated waiter and lead us in an Irish song sing-along.
Are you planning any Spring Flings?
