The annual event has come once again.
Lily's Holiday TeaEach year I choose a different theme.
This year it was Take JOY, a Tasha Tudor Old Fashioned Christmas Tea.
Lily and her family started coming for tea when Lily was 4 years old
and now she is as tall as I am and 13 years old.
Pumpkin Moonshine Soup
Tasha's Garden Sandwich
Hot Cheese Rounds
Goat Cheese Tarts
Tea: Tasha Tudor Welsh Tea
Scones with jam and cream
Gingerbread Doves and Corgi Dogs too
English Toffee Bars
Mincemeat Cookie Tarts
Tea: Oolong tea
I reproduced the best I could a table setting from one of Tasha's books and had doves hanging above the table.
The dollhouse, which I will show another day, was decorated and ready for the celebration.
Several of the recipes came from the Tasha Tudor cookbook.
There were stories of Tasha to share and her special Welsh Tea
to drink. There were new guests to celebrate, as Lily's grandmother had recently gotten married and her aunt brought along her partner. Ten in all sat around the table celebrating
the holiday's together as a family.
It was a day of Delight!
