I had promised the children that we’d have a tea party to celebrate the birth of Baby Cambridge (the future King George), but since Ryan was out-of-town last week, we decided to wait until he could join us for our celebration!
I didn’t have as cohesive of a theme as usual…I threw in a little blue (for the baby boy), with the table runner, some Ghirardelli chocolates from Ryan’s trip, and the variety of tea (Bigelow English Teatime, in a lovely blue box), but I didn’t do anything with blue foods.
For the most part, we just enjoyed some of our favorite tea party foods, with a new item thrown in (that was so popular, it will definitely become part of the permanent collection!)…an orange poppy-seed cake!
We had our standard scones:
And cucumber sandwiches:
We had coronation chicken for dinner last night, so we enjoyed finger sandwiches made from the leftovers:
Dried apricots and Cotswold cheese from England:
Thumbprint cookies and shortbread:
And, of course, finger jello:
It was a fun way to celebrate the birth of the future King of England!
