    I have a host that wants to do a tea party theme show. I have a couple flyers about it but would like a couple of ideas for recipes or anything else anyone has done at this type of show. I thought about ordering the tea from the catalogue for the guests to try and make some kind of baked good to demo. Has anyone done this type of show? Any ideas?

    Here are a few ideas...

    I haven't done a tea party, but I think that would be alot of fun. I think ordering PC's Good Company tea is a good idea. I haven't tried it but my mother in law ordered it and really likes it.

    As for suggestions on a baked good, maybe the lemon tartlets in PC's cookbook Delightful Desserts pg.100. I think that would go well with tea. Or even something as simple as baking cookies using the cookie press and decorating them all differently. When I think tea party, I think dainty and girly...I would definitely use the simple additions creatively to decorate with and use to display whatever you decide to make. You may even consider getting some paper doilies you can buy at any craft store or even Wal-Mart for super cheap to place under the saucers and tea cups or even to use within your display.

    I think women would love to attend a tea party - we all use to pretend when we were little girls having tea with our stuffed animals and trying to act as polite and proper as we could! I think it would be so much fun :p ! Let us know how it goes!! I would love to suggest a tea party to a host!

    Tea Party Ideas

    I've been to tea before, but not hosted a party like this. (My first is still a few weeks away.) But fingertip sandwiches with cucumber spread or watercress would be great. If you have the bread tubes you could make the bread in those and the sandwiches would be beautiful. I also know that there is a PC recipes that uses croissant rolls that would be beautiful, but I don't have access to the cookbook right now. I will post it on here later today when I have the chance. I believe it uses pecans. Buying the tea and coffee would be a great idea. It would give guest the chance to try it out and if the love it you would always have repeat customers. Can't buy it at the grocery. :D

    Maybe you're thinking of the Pecan Tassies. They are in the "All the Best" cookbook and those were the first dessert to come to mind when I read about doing a tea party theme. They're yummy and pretty easy!

    Her show is going to be at 10am on a Saturday so I'm thinking a pastryish demo would be good although I LOVE cucumber sandwhiches. I may mention to my host that she could make those sandwhiches ahead of time. I like the doilies too and they aren't normally expensive to buy. Her show isn't for another month so it will be awhile til I let you know how it goes. This host loves to entertain so maybe I'll take pictures of what she does. It always looks so nice. Thanks for the ideas!
