PHOTOS OF MY TEA

Today was my first Afternoon Tea in my downstairs tea room.
I think everyone had a nice time and I had lots of
tea time goodies:  Lemon Cream Cheese Scones,
3 savories: A Cream Cheese olive - onion Pinwheel, A Cheddar Cheese Ham Scone Sandwich with Hot Pepper Peach and Little Cheese, tomato and spinach Quiches.  For sweets I had 3 of those: Raspberry Cheesecake Bars, Chocolate Peppermint Brownies and Pumpkin Cookies with walnuts, craisins and raisins.

Here are some photos:

messy kitchenette:

How lovely! I remember when you moved and you showed us your space for tea and plans you had for welcoming ladies over. And now you've done it. It looked beautiful. What a blessing to the ladies all your hard work was. xo Deborah
