My girlfriends and I met at The Phoenician in Arizona for high tea, a gorgeous setting made even better by fancy teas, dainty desserts and delectable finger sandwiches. Not a detail was missed. The best part? Getting to play dress up with some of my very favorite ladies. The theme was of course, hats and vintage, so I went straight to my collection of fashions that my grandmother has given me, and her hat, dress and jewelry were a hit and so much fun to wear.
I have gorgeous friends, right?? We had such a great time – I must remember this theme for a girls’ get-together at my house soon. Here are a few tea party recipes I’ve had tucked and need to try:
Blueberry tea cake
Preheat an oven to 350°F. Butter and flour an 8-inch square baking dish.
In a bowl, stir together the 2 cups flour, the baking powder, baking soda, salt and cardamom. Set aside.
