Afternoon Tea

My girlfriend had been out of state for several months and wanted to host an intimate, relaxed gathering to reconnect with friends after returning home. She loved my suggestion of a playful afternoon tea.

Fresh-baked tea biscuits

Fancy finger sandwiches, savory biscuits, and pastries were served with tea pairings. (Here is the full menu I designed: Tea_Menu).

Bubbly Lemonade with Fresh Blackberries

I made soy-based non-toxic candles in an assortment of fancy teacups as party favors for the guests. The teabag-shaped thank you tag was an adorable touch.
