Tea Party Menu

That little tea party fundraiser I've been working on is THREE WEEKS from now...well, from this past Saturday really. So, less than three weeks. Time to truly freak out! There is still so much To Do. Which is why I haven't been here much at all lately. But I wanted to stop in and tell you about our upcoming menu because it is going to be Really Delicious. And I'll probably share some recipes with you stay tuned. =)

Victorian Tea Party Menu
May 7, 2011

Minted Butter Cucumber Sandwiches
Dilled Chicken Salad in Pastry Puffs
Radish Sesame Ginger Tea Sandwiches
Blueberry Almond Scones with Blackberry Butter and Orange Cream
Lemon Pistachio Puffs
Chocolate Caramel Mini Cupcakes
White Chocolate Lime Cookies
Fresh Fruit

Tea Selection:
Rhubarb Cream
Blue Sapphire

Doesn't all of that sound just marvelous?? I'm telling you, our committee tested some wonderful food this year and we couldn't serve all of it at once, so, fortunately, we've got some waiting in the wings for later tea parties. I love when that happens. =)

We also have some wonderful activities planned...I'm so looking forward to seeing everyone's paper roses and embroidery projects! The little girls will also have a lovely time making paper dolls and playing dress-up. And of course, I predict that everyone will ooh and aahhh over our fun merchandise in the Tea Boutique. =) Adorable handmade tea cozies, colorful teapots, sweet miniature tea sets, beautiful crystal teapot jewelry, intriguing Teashop Mystery novels...I've already been shopping...I'll admit it. ;)

Live near us in Henderson, Tennessee, and want to tea party with us? You can bring your daughters, your mother, your sisters, your friends! It's often a multi-generational event for many families, but if you only have sons or your mom lives far away, call up your sweet friends and make it a perfect Girls' Day. To dream about what your tea party experience might be like this year, go to the tea party page on the FHU website and take a look at our pictures!

Questions? Email me at and I can help you with tickets. Prices are as follows: ADVANCE Adult tickets are $15.00 and Children's tickets are $8.00. Tickets purchased AT THE DOOR are $18.00 for Adults and $10.00 for Children. The tea party is FREE for children ages 2 and under.

Talk to me. Are you coming to the tea party? Have you come every single year? What's your favorite part? What food item sounds the most intriguing to you this year? Comment away! =)


  1. Certainly doesn't compare to the delicacies that I'll be having at the MSYC Fishing Rodeo! Could I get a bluebery scone and some white chocolate lime cookies to go :-)

  2. Hahaha! I'm certain they'll have scones there, too. Oh, wait, maybe that was stones. And you can't eat them. So sorry. Maybe Ms. Debbie will sneak you out some goodies from the tea party. ;)

  3. Sounds absolutely fabulous! Good luck!

  4. How much fun is this going to be?! I love the menu...everyone is going to love it! :)

  5. Oh I wish I could go to the Tea Party this year! Alas, we're not going to be in Henderson until the first week of June. So, I may be needing a recipe for the white chocolate lime cookies. They just sound wonderful!

  6. I wish I lived close to you, I want to go!! You've just inspired me to throw my own tea party. It sounds like SO much fun. Thanks for stopping by and telling me about those lemon cookies, they really do look delicious! I hope your party is marvelous. :)

  7. Oh, and, do you have any tea recommendations? I want to try more!

  8. Christina, I wish you could come, too! I love it so much. It's my favorite thing. =) As for tea recommendations, my personal long-time favorites are Cream Earl Grey and Buckingham Palace Garden Party. You won't find either of those at a local grocery store, though. Maybe at a tea shop or online. We buy our tea for this tea party in bulk from Metro Tea in Canada...but I think they only do wholesale...? Anyway, you should be able to find them with a little hunting.

    I also love chai, which is easily available - look up my post on that. And my most recent favorites are the two teas we're serving at the tea party this year - Rhubarb Cream and Blue Sapphire. They are both exceptional! And I could totally sell you some after our tea party in a couple of weeks. If we have some left. =)
