Tea with Friends - Mid-morning tea

I can't believe I've already been to a Christmas Craft show last weekend and there were so many gift ideas.  Before we left, my friends Carol and Kathryn came for mid-morning tea and I invite you to join us here.  I got up early to bake some scones and must say I love the Roul'Pat that I bought for rolling out dough.  It holds just enough flour in the little pockets to keep the dough from sticking; I think it's made of silicon.

Since I wasn't serving fancy finger sandwiches, I put the scones on the bottom of the 3 tiered server,

and there's a dish of creme fraiche on the side,

a plate of assorted cheese in the middle,

and some juicy blackberries, raspberries and grapes on the top.

We had herbal tea; a pot of ginger-peach and one of chamomile.

I'm linking with Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage, the hostess of Tea Time Tuesday when friends gather for tea.  Pull up a chair and join us; the tea is hot, the biscuits are warm and there's good conversation.


  1. This is a lovely setting!...Christine

  2. Hi Judith,
    Your tea looks and sounds just heavenly! What fun to gather around and partake together! Everything looks delish! Thank you for your lovely comment on my post; very sweet of you! It's always a pleasure to have you join me for tea and wouldn't it be nice to do it for real someday? Have a wonderful week, my friend.


  3. Judith, Your scones, cheese and fruit look delicious! I love your plates too and your pretty kitchen. I hope you enjoyed the craft show - it's always fun with girlfriends!
    Hugs, Beth

  4. This looks marvelous, Judith! I've heard wonderful things about that pastry board and am glad to know you love it. Also that you serve herbal tea – that's the only kind I ever have and there are more and more delicious varieties available. Have a wonderful week. – g

  5. Hi Judith, The scones look so yummy, if it is not family secret, could you bring the recipe to lunch. Table setting and goodies look so pretty. Take care, Jen

  13. Well now I am just jealous as I was not asked for tea. All looks delicious. I have a silpat that I bought several years ago that I roll pastry out on and use on cookie sheets. They are a great tool. Happy tea party.
