Autumn tea party
Getting together for tea is a wonderful way to reconnect with loved ones after summer vacations.
With crisp fall mornings, the leaves changing colors, and the garden harvest collected, take the time to celebrate with friends and family before those school and holiday activities.
Easy fall party decor
Decorations are easy.
Rich golden, warm orange, and burnished red fall leaves, Indian corn, harvest-themed napkins, tableware, and accents set the mood.
Harvest season menu
Your menu can reflect harvested fruits and vegetables also.
Offer a tray of apple and pear slices (dipped in lemon juice to keep them from getting brown) accompanied by sharp cheddar, brie, or a cheese-nut log.
For entrees, try a quiche in wedges or as mini-quiches.
What’s a great choice? Wild mushroom onion. Other possibilities include a mixed garden vegetable, sun-dried tomato parmesan, or a hot cheesy bacon quiche recipe.
Other desserts might be fruit tartlets like carmelized apple or huckleberry, bite-sized pumpkin cheesecakes, or hot gingerbread with brandy sauce.
Tea serving suggestions
The fall seasonal flavors are so satisfying, that not only might your Autumn Tea Party turn into an annual event, you might end up wanting to have several each year.
