I am so excited to be a hostess at one of
the tables next month for our October
Afternoon Tea at Columbia First
Assembly of God Church.
I was also asked to work on the menu for this fall tea so today we had an Afternoon Tea for
seven ladies to try all the foods we will be serving in October. The Women's Ministry Director and some of the ladies who will be baking or serving as hostesses that day came to get an early tasting experience.
is the disaster - I never remembered to
take photos today. After one of the ladies
helped me clean up I did take this photo
of the dishes washed and back on the table
ready to be put away. This is just one of
the tiered servers but we used quite
a few more and served from a buffet
to practice how it would be done
at the October tea.
which was a huge help! I can't
believe I don't have photos but I did take
a few photos beforehand when I was
making some of the savories in my kitchen:
Being a table hostess will mean that
each hostess will bring her own dishes, cups and saucers, silverware, napkins and centerpiece, etc for her assigned table. She will pour the tea at her table for her group of ladies.
So this will be our fall menu and this is
what we had today:
Hot black tea and
Plain Scones with Raisins
Scones with Dates - Cream for both
Fall Mixed Green Salads romaine, leaf
lettuce and spinach, pear pieces,
Craisins, peas, red onion, cucumbers,
mushrooms, crispy onion rings and
Oriental Honey Dressing
3 Savories: Smoked Turkey with Cranberry
Finger Sandwiches (Linda Jennings recipe)
Hot Mini Cheese Spinach Mushroom
Quiches, Pimento Cheese Pinwheels
3 Sweets: Cherry Oreo Cheesecake,
Pumpkin Raisin Cookies
Zucchini Walnut Cream Cheese Bars
Everything will be homemade.
I loved helping out by making these
fall themed tea cozies for the hostesses
to serve the tea in October with our
7 table teapots. I was glad to get these
done last week so I can move on to my own projects. These cozies are large and fit
these 48 Ounce Saki teapots so they
should be able to fill 8 six ounce
teacups with tea.
