A Pentecost Tea

I know it’s a week late, but…we had our Pentecost tea party, that I had originally planned to actually have on Pentecost Sunday, a few days ago, but at least it was in the same week! I worked with a theme of red, and, since it’s spring, strawberries (which are conveniently also red!).


We had lots of fresh strawberries we picked ourselves at Eckert’s:


And strawberry muffins, made with more of the fruits of our labor (literally!):


We also had red jello, not strawberry, but cherry, to mix things up:


Since lemons go so well with strawberries, we had my favorite lemon shortbread:


We also had chocolate chip scones, just because:


Some English muffins:


And a variety of toppings, including a special strawberry-peach jam:



The tea of choice was Constant Comment, partly because it’s one of my favorites, and partly because it comes in red packets!
