This year for our 11th wedding anniversary we celebrated with a Tea Party and hosting our friends. We had on the menu:
Shrimp Salad in Phyllo Cups
Herbal Cucumber Sandwiches on Homemade Bread
Smoked Salmon and Brie Crackers
Fluffy Homemade Scones
Fresh Lemon Curd
Ginger Snap Cookies
I have the recipes posted in the Kitchen category for those hoping to replicate the experience. I had been making sugar cubes hearts for the event, and boy is it time consuming! I’d forgotten what a task it is. We served our tea in my pink vintage teacups for this which are made of elegant glass. It was a great time with lots of laughs and good music. I always look forward to hosting and it is almost like a test run for our 15 year vow renewal which is coming up. Oh, how time flies. That will be here before we know it! By that time we will be on our official homestead.
Light and Love.
