Delicious and savory Chive, Bacon, and Blue Cheese Scones set the note for this delightful menu, with chilled Watermelon Gazpacho and Baby Lima Pâté following. A duo of tea sandwiches, Ham and Green Tomato Picalilli and Pickled Okra Roll-ups, are both tasty and easy to prepare. Sweet desserts, like our gorgeous Blueberry Buckle, charming Summer Hat Peach Pies adorned with edible flowers, and flavorful Raspberry White-Chocolate Mousse Tarts, round out the mouth-watering treats. Tall glasses of tea served with peach nectar and mint ice cubes make this teatime even more special.


Set a table graced with a blooming bouquet in a cheery window-filled sunroom, and select your favorite summertime china. Give guests hats as party favors, or encourage them to wear their own to this warm-weather-inspired tea.
