Planning a Tea Party

Things are going well with us, right now.
I'll save the minor issues for later, b/c right now, I am planning....

A Valentine's Day Tea!

Menu so far, still in the early stages, subject to change:

Savory:
    
     Quiche, ham and cheese
      Tea Sandwiches: Pimento Cheese, Chicken Salad, Cucumber, Ham
      Pesto Dip w/crackers
      Cheese Straws
      Spinach Balls
     
Scone:
   
      Cream Scone
       Fruit Scone, to be determined
          Both with clotted cream and jam

Sweets:

       Fruit Tray, Spiced Nuts
       Cream Wafers with Strawberry Filling
       White Chocolate Cappucino Gateau
       Cowboy Bakes/Oatmeal choc chip Cookies

Tea/Beverage:

        Pot of Tealyra's Golden Monkey *HIGHLY recommend this, it's worth the price
        Various flavored tea bags for individual tastes *I have lots of these, lol
         Soft Drinks
        Water
         Punch
         Southern Sweet Tea *Iced, b/c that is what we drink here, and what is considered, 'tea'. :)

There will be cheese pizza for the kids, as Drake will not eat much if any of the above.
Dress will be casual, b/c my friends and fam are not dress up people. Jeans at funerals here is common among some families, and not looked down upon. So, it's up to the guest. Prissy if ya
wanna, casual if not.

So, what do you think? Ideas? Suggestions? Am I missing something?
It's just a nice way to have something bright and fun to look forward to in the middle of winter.
If it's cold here by then. Supposed to be in the upper 70's tomorrow.

Pinkies Up!
   (but not really, it "ain't" proper, lol)   ;P

  1. That will be fun, Tammy. I think everyone should do what they are comfortable doing- jeans or dressy--as long as it feels comfortable to the wearer. Your party sounds delightful. Sorry things are going so well right now. xo Diana

    It sounds like you have everything under control. I don't think you missed anything. I think as for tea, make sure you have some decaf tea available.
