Mother's Day Tea Party

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day! 

Our family celebrated with a Saturday afternoon tea party tradition. My grandma loved drinking tea and it quickly became one of my sister and I's favorite things to do with our mom and grandma for holidays and any warm afternoon. I love the elegance of my grandma's fine china, from the tea cup to the sugar and cream holders, the table is filled with memories of her.

My sister and I were so excited to spend an afternoon with our mom chatting over a warm cup of tea, delicate tea sandwiches, sweet treats and lots of laughter. We set the table with fresh tulip printed linens, pink table sets, floral antique accents, tiered serving pieces and fresh spring flowers. Below is just a glimpse of our menu- recipes to follow!
Our Menu

Fresh Teas with honey, milk & sugar

Tea Sandwiches- I used Udi's bread and Kinnikinnick bread
Cucumber Cream Cheese Sandwiches with Sliced Cucumbers & Cherry Tomatoes
Salmon, Avocado, Cream Cheese & Red Onion Sandwiches
Deviled Egg Salad Sandwiches

Blueberry & Plain Scones- I used Gluten Free Pantry Muffin & Scone Mix with 
Clotted Cream, Lemon Curd & Triple Berry Preserves

Spinach & Mushroom quiches using Glutino Pie Crust
Coconut Macaroons
Glutino Pretzels Dipped in Pink Chocolate 


I have to credit the Spring issue of Delight Gluten Free Magazine Hostess with the Mostess! Gluten Free Afternoon Tea Party! A majority of the gourmet recipes we used came from this charming article.
