Tea with Friends

I had a wonderful day today with my girlfriends Tami and Michelle. Actually the whole reason we got together was to start sort of a writing group together. We got so much accomplished and because it was at my place, I played hostess and you know how excited I get playing hostess. :)

I made little tea sandwiches....cucumber, dill spread and cheddar cheese, blueberry cream cheese spread and chicken salad.

And a pot of tea, using my new teapot so it's now broken in. :)

Fresh watermelon. I love using these long skewers because it makes it easier to reach when you're not so close to the bowl....

Isn't this perfect for a summery day? And it was almost 80 degrees today!

And last but not least, the personal raspberry pies...topped with a little heart because it was baked with love. I'll post the quick recipe for these pies tomorrow! They are SO EASY.



And the girls were able to to take home a personal pie of their own. :)

Until tomorrow...dream of raspberry pies and yummy sighs...

Wow, your first tea. Isn't it fun to host friends for an afternoon tea?

I am having friends over next weekend for a Wimbeldon breakfast with tea from Harrods. My next big tea is in Novweber, I'm expecting about 15 people.

The tea sandwiches sound yummy and the pies look so cute. And everyone gets a pie to bring home? Fun!
