No pictures for this post. But then, I'm just sounding out some ideas. My roommate, Andrea, and I have finally set a date for our house-warming. It's going to be on Saturday, June 10th. We've decided on afternoon tea. More precisely, full tea, consisting of sandwiches, scones, sweets and dessert.

This is the menu we've decided on so far:

Savouries: tarragon chicken salad finger sandwiches
cucumber (w/humus?) finger sandwiches
tomato, basil & mozarella finger sandwiches

Tea Cakes: scones
lavender cookies
Japanese castella cake/honey lemon cake

Condiments: honey
fresh fruit preserves/jam
apple butter

So, what do you think? Would you make any substitutions? Orginally, the cake item was going to be either spice cake or pumpkin bread, but Moocow said that those were autumn menu items. Although, technically, lavender is a mid-summer item. Anyway, comments, please!

Delicious! I wish I could join you.

I took my mom out to high tea for mother's day. It was pricey, but we never felt more girly or special than on that day.
