Spring into Themed Teas by Laura Childs

Saturday, April 26th 2014 @ 3:45 PM

If bursting blooms, warm weather, and returning birds aren’t enough, Spring is also a wonderful inspiration for themed teas.

One of my favorites is a Cherry Blossom Tea, complete with silk cherry blossoms, floral china, and tiny seed packets as place cards.  Cherry scones, cherry and cream cheese tea sandwiches, and green tea with bits of cherry are a must.

For a Front Porch Tea, think floral print tablecloths, small votive candles, and fresh flowers.  Start with cream scones and Devonshire cream, then enjoy tea sandwiches of chicken salad or cream cheese and cucumber.  A vanilla spice or black plum tea would be elegant with this menu.

One of my very favorites is a Spa Tea.  Fresh flowers, aromatherapy candles, and relaxation music set the mood.  Drape fluffy towels over your chairs and place plump pillows underfoot.  Serve Egyptian chamomile and lemon herbal teas, fruit kabobs, and shrimp salad sandwiches.  Favors might include small soaps and mini bottles of lotion.  If you can hire a professional or coax a friend to give shoulder or hand rubs, so much the better!
