Today was the 90th birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Of course we marked the occasion with a tea party!
We went with a dinnertime party again, which included four kinds of finger sandwiches (cucumber, lobster salad, gouda, and Volpi Rotola, a nice local touch), cheese straws, grape Jell-O, a lemon-lime pound cake, grapes, and everyone’s favorite chocolate chip scones. We also enjoyed one of my favorite teas, Darjeeling.
The table was decorated with yellow carnations and purple tea lights:
Long may she reign!
