Continuing with the series of Cristy's teas, today's post is from June 2011 "Thyme in the Garden" High Tea. As you can see, the tablescape was bursting with beautiful, vibrant colors.
Cristy collects samplers, and also stitches them herself. They are displayed throughout her house.
Cristy and the girl who was assisting her serve that afternoon.
The lime green place setting is where I sat. There were orchid, hot pink and goldenrod place settings too.
Notice the ribbon placemats, which Cristy wove by hand. Beautiful! What an incredible amount of time and work went into making 16 of them.
First course: Chilled Strawberry Soup, and Scone with Strawberry Preserves, mock Devonshire Cream and Lemon Curd.
Hot Tea and Iced Tea
Second Course: Tortellini Salad, Strawberry Spinach Salad and Parmesan Cheese Straws.
Third Course: Summer Berries on a Cloud.
Tomorrow's post will be "Oriental Cherry Blossoms" High Tea.
