Today I enjoyed having some
ladies for a luncheon tea:

 I choose the word "luncheon tea" because
I didn't make multiples of food items although
I did serve Chicken Salad Croissants and
a nice green salad with pine nuts and
raspberries.  Then I served scones with
cherry filling inside and little cheesecake 
tarts with fruits.  We had iced tea and
since it is very hot - our cups and saucers
stayed empty of hot tea.

inside of them.  When we were in Kansas
City I was able to go to Cost Plus World
Market so we enjoyed some Somerdale
Devon Cream for our scones.

Do you love hospitality?  I really enjoy
making food and serving it.

Ohh, Bernideen, that sounds delightful! I'm going out for afternoon tea today, and I can't wait! Your cherry-filled scones look like perfection. Your friends must've been very pleased with the repast.

What a lovely tea, and I can see why you focused on iced tea as the beverage!

What a great luncheon tea! I'm sure everyone enjoyed it. I really love your tea room, Bernideen; and your garden as well! Looks like life in Missouri agrees with you!

Hi Bernideen. Your scones look lovely and I love the heart-shape. What a wonderful tea time. I've been a way for a while but am slowly getting back into my blog. It has been a hard month so far with the passing of my mother but I did have my son home for a visit and summer is still with us. Your garden is amazing and makes one happy just to look at it!

Yes, I do love hospitality.
Those heart shaped scones look so good.

Hey Bernideen,
Looks like you gave a lovely luncheon for some lovely ladies! Your tiered servers are so pretty. And yes, I do love hospitality but don't practice it near enough...
Blessings, Linda

What a treat those lovely ladies were into being in your kitchen and having lunch made by Bernideen

What a treat and privilege your friends had being in your home at your pretty table and with delicious food. There is something so special about being invited into someone's home where they have fussed over you a bit in planning food and table settings. Meeting at a restaurant just doesn't compare!

What a lucky group of friends to be treated to a luncheon tea by you, Bernideen! What a heavenly menu you served your guests, and your table looks so pretty.
