This morning my Mom and I hosted a tea party for Miss E's Sunday School class girls, their moms, and their grandmas, at my parents' home. We had a fun time preparing for it so I thought you might like to see what we came up with.
We had a woodland theme, so my mom made place card holders out of sticks, and we gave acorn Christmas ornaments as favors.
Each place setting was unique. We had fun matching the tea cups to the dessert plates.
And speaking of dessert, we had these strawberry shortcakes with butterflies on top, served in my mom and sister's green depression glass custard cups.
These little cheese hearts were fun to eat! I just bought some thickly sliced cheese from the deli and cut them out with a cookie cutter.
I also made acorns out of a chocolate chip, a mini Nutter Butter, and a Hershey's Kiss.
My mom designed this beautiful woodland centerpiece, complete with fairies, pink bottle brush trees, a path, trellis, and around back...
the fairies are having their own tea party!
I also made these little stuffed cherry tomatoes, and since the recipe was requested, I will share it here.
16-20 cherry tomatoes
1/2 package bacon bits
1/2 c. mayonnaise
3 oz. cream cheese
3 T. parmesan cheese
1 T. parsley
1/4 t. onion powder
Cut tops off of cherry tomatoes and scoop out seeds. Combine remaining ingredients. Using a baby spoon, stuff filling inside of tomatoes. Refrigerate several hours before serving.
