Tea for one hundred

Last weekend, my mother-in-law helped host a ladies tea at her church to raise funds. With seating for 100, different members “host” a table and decorate it to their liking with a common theme around tea.  It is a good reason pull our the fine china and to show off your vintage tea pot from grandma. Here is a picture she posted of one of the tables.

Lady’s Tea Table

I was unable to go due to my sons baseball pictures and first baseball game (which got rained out) but I did offer a helping hand.  She asked if my mom and I could make tea cup and tea pot cookies as the dessert for the event.  She wanted them individually wrapped so they could be set at each place setting.  My mom is the one who has the cutters for this and had been practicing designs, so I really played a backseat roll in this one.  She baked all the cookies, packaged them, and delivered them.  I just showed up to decorate with her which is the best part.

We mostly stuck to her designs except for one.  I like to operate without much of a plan and changed one of them….luckily mom was in agreement and to decorating we went!  I worked on the polka dot design while she worked on the roses and flower inset cookies. We spent about 4 hours decorating and got nearly all of them finished.  I think she had to put some finishing touches on some the next day due to drying time.

Each one was placed in a bag and topped with a floral spring paper.  It was a cute addition to the ladies tea this year and from what I hear, they were a hit!
