A Bridal “High Tea”

I was in Virginia last weekend for one last hoorah before the BIG day. My parents and I knocked down one task after another and we’re in pretty good shape for the wedding! Decisions about rings, ceremony music, invitations, bridesmaids’ gifts, and hair-dos were made. Check, check, check, and….. check.

The highlight of the visit, however, was a beautiful bridal shower that the lovely ladies of Kingspoint threw in my honor. Linda, Chrissy, and Barbara came up with the unique idea to have high tea – and it was fabulous! The table was adorned with sandwiches, scones, and little deviled eggs (eggs from my parent’s Belgian D’Uccles!). And of course, a variety of teas served in a variety of unique teacups.

Every guest shared recipes with me, and all on matching “A” stationary. It’s like having a whole cookbook of foolproof recipes, and from people I know! The gals also presented me with cookware: All Clad skillet, Le Creuset dutch oven, Le Creuset panini press, and a gorgeous Emile Henry pie plate. Amazingly, I managed to carry everything back with me to Portland. It’s time to do some serious damage in the kitchen, I think.

Good food, good cheer, good friends. Thank you!
