This year my Mother was asked by KY Living Magazine to be featured in their November edition. What does that mean? You must host a full tea in August, decorate your home and prepare for Christmas! Luckily my Mom has an amazing group of friends. I refer to them as the “Yaya’s” who I love to spend time with. They are all so special and each quickly volunteered to help my Mom by preparing dishes for the tea.
I drove two hours to my Moms home because I just couldn’t imagine missing this once in a lifetime event! I love her Christmas Teas but being a part of the the photo shoot was really exciting (and a lot of work) and I didn’t want to miss it. I am thankful for the time that I took to go because it was an experience I will treasure with the Yaya’s and never forget.
My Mother is a tea expert and has traveled the world enjoying tea and earning certifications. She literally knows more about tea than any other person I have met. She introduced me to tea and we actually both earned a certification together at Elmwood Inn by Bruce Richardson. We have enjoyed family teas for years and now I am sharing with you her Christmas Tea Menu. You want to be sure to include both savories and sweets and the serving sizes are bite sized. Tea is normally served between 2-4 pm in the afternoon and is a wonderful way to relax and spend time with friends and family.
