Cristy Bennett's Swan Tea

Last Saturday my girlfriend, Lori, and I traveled to East Lansing for another of Cristy Bennett's phenomenal teas.  This tea was themed after Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake Ballet.  Like all the others, it was beautiful, but since everything was blue, I especially loved it.

Personalized menu to take home along with a bag of chocolates!

Fresh flowers to take home too!

The three-course high tea began at 1:00 o'clock.   Our tea was Blissful Blueberry - a black and green tea from Tealightful Teas.

The first course was a chilled Blueberry Soup with a Blueberry-Lemon Pinwheel Scone and Luscious Lemon Curd.

Second course was Herbed Chicken Salad, Blueberry-Feta-Almond Lettuce Salad, and Pimento Cheese Campari Tomato.  

The Dessert Course was White Chocolate-Hazelnut Cake.

As always, everything was delicious.  There was the sweetest baby girl at her first tea party, dressed in a darling tu-tu.  Several got pictures of her, but I wasn't seated close enough to take one.  I did get a picture of Cristy and her husband, David, and their poodle, Soapy, in the dining room though.

Thanks, Cristy, for another delightful tea!

  1. Cristy's teas are always so beautiful and delightful, but I'm a blue/white lover too, so this one especially appeals to me. (I say that, but actually I probably could say it about each one...she does such an amazing job with each theme!)

  2. What a lovely tea. Every thing is so pretty.I love the Swan Lake Ballet.

  3. I've always loved seeing themed teas, and this one was just as enjoyable. That was a lot of work and thinking to put into all the decorations and the menu. Beautiful overall.

  4. These teas are simply breathtaking, and like you, I'm enamored of this one because of all the blue!
