Before we headed off to London, I had a pre-London tea party at my house in February for two girlfriends who went on the trip with me. As you can see from the snow on the ground, teapots that never went dry kept us warm and cozy as we planned our upcoming trip!
The menu was Wild Rice Bisque topped with a Puff Pastry teapot; Bacon and Cheddar Cheese Scones; Shepherd's Pie; and Ginger Trifle for dessert. Our teas throughout the afternoon were: Earl Grey Black Tea, Keyoto Rose Green Tea, and Silver Needles White Tea. We toasted to a safe, fun, and educational trip with a non-alcoholic sparkling white grape beverage.

Blooming daffodils, on the lawn of Kensington Palace, greeted us a couple of weeks later!
