Mother’s Day High Tea

Sunday, May 11, 2014 from 4:00 – 6:30 PM


Brunch, schmunch.

This year, treat Mom – and yourself – to High Tea. A luxurious, late afternoon repast, featuring cakes & other baked goods, small sandwiches, and tea.

Bring your own alcoholic beverages if you wish – a little Prosecco would be non-traditional, but never the less, very nice, with this menu.

  • Date scones with jam and mascarpone cream
  • Tea Sandwiches: Cucumber watercress & radish with Dill butter; curried chicken; olive walnut; banana bread with honey cream cheese
  • Victoria Sponge – light yellow cake with strawberry jam and whipped cream
  • Warm artichoke, asparagus & goat cheese dip with crackers and crudités
  • A few cookies or tiny tarts or other surprises (that are likely to be chocolate in nature)
  • Strawberries and fresh pineapple
  • And of course TEA – herbal and caffeinated, hot or iced, with milk and sugar – or not


Please sign up using this form (also under the “Contact Us” tab above). The deadline to sign up online is Friday May 9th. If you miss the deadline or have any questions, please contact your host, Deb at 607-712-6368 or
