Tea Time Menu Planning For 200

In my "spare" time, I am planning the menu for 200 guests at the Tea Time With Berea Health Ministry to be held on Saturday, October 17. The food items will be made by volunteers. The challenge is to choose delicious, unique, and easy to prepare recipes. Some of my tea recipe books I am using are shown here. GJ and AJ have enjoyed the taste-testing!

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with. I chair a ministry at our church that hosts quarterly teas. Also looking to add special new and special to add to the "classics"(cuke sandwiches,scones...)
This Sunday it is pumpkin scones and maple butter at our back to School Tea for teachers.
Love your blog!

Yes, Patsy, my spare time has been around 2:00 a.m. *LOL*

What a huge undertaking, Linda! Looks like you have a great collection of tea books for ideas. I read my tea books like others read novels! When my husband finished our built-in bookcases in the family room this summer, I catalogued all mine so I'd have a list to carry with me to avoid purchasing books I already had.

I hope your tea for 200 will be a huge success. Isn't it amazing how we accumulate tea books?

Linda, Good luck with the planning. I am sure it will be fine. I would spend too much time looking at the books,you have a lovely collection.

OMGosh, 200? I would go mad. Good luck, I am sure you can pull it off though.

Hello, Linda. I just discovered your blog. I am the national tea examiner from Examiner.com. I am very interested in your charity and would like to give it some publicity.
I know it is for the Berea Health Ministry and that it's a clinic for the uninsured. I went to the website.
However, I would like to know who runs the Berea Health ministry. Also, if my readers live in the area, can they buy tickets or is it invitation only?
I am hoping to add two new categories to my tea categories, tea and charity and tea events in America. You will find my E-mail address on my website if you click on my bio. I don't really like to leave it around in plain view.

I love your blog. It's visually lovely and you seem very friendly and kind. You remind me of the people at the United Methodist Church I attended a while back. What you are doing is true social activism. I'm glad to have read your blog.

That's a nice little library of tea books. I'm building up one of my own even though I don't have much on recipes. I can't use those but I am interested in tea history and inspiration too. --Teaternity
