Bible Study Tea


Hello, dear bloggers! Today is my first time joining Lady Katherine's Tea Time Tuesday and Terri @ Artful Affirmations Tea Time Tuesday with Friends. What a great way to meet fellow tea aficionados in blogland! I am blessed to belong to a Ladies' Bible Study Tea Group started by a good friend of mine. Each month we take turns hosting the Bible study and tea in our homes. This was at my home a few months back. I have since hosted again and will share that tea with you next week.







These swan cream puffs, mini tarts, and cake were purchased from a local bakery.



I did, however, make the scones, mock devonshire cream, and an assortment of cookies.






Thank you for stopping by. You're always welcome to the Lace and Ivy Cottage for a cream tea!



Till next time,

Hello Lorna~I was so delighted to see you strolled by for a visit. Thank you for the wonderful words of encouragement. Spring has definitely brought healing.
Your whole tablescape was...lovely.
It reflected your personal desire in making your friends feel special. I always look forward to you sharing your collection of tea accessories. I would love to have your input on getting started on collecting and especially the best resources for shopping.
This would be a perfect setting for a Mother's Day Luncheon.
I love making swan profiteroles. I have a tutorial in the works for making them. I hope you can stop by for it.

Sweet wishes,
Sara
