Seeing as how we had a tea party for the London 2012 Olympics, I couldn’t very well let the Sochi games go by without doing something! I even found Russian Caravan tea, which was the perfect selection (or seemed like it at the time…I think it may be the most disgusting thing I have ever put in my mouth!)!
My theme was Russian (of course), snowflakes, and blue and white…nice, wintry colors. I got to use my new white tablecloth (with an old blue runner), and our beautiful china. And unscented white tea lights and pillar candles from Target made for the perfect centerpiece:
We has Russian tea cookies:
And a Russian poppy seed bread (which sadly wasn’t very popular):
Meringues (which I actually made correctly for the first time ever!):
Snowflake sugar cookies:
An orange poppy seed cake (Did you know that poppy seeds are actually blue? They fit the theme perfectly!):
English muffins with blueberry preserves:
And fresh blueberries!
I thought that this was going to be really hard to put together, from a menu standpoint. As it turns out, it wasn’t that bad at all!
