Patty, Wanda, Melissa and I attended a fund raiser afternoon tea
hosted by the Cox's Station DAR Chapter on Saturday, May 14.
The tea was held at the beautiful, historic farm of an extremely successful movie and TV producer,
and his Kentucky-native wife. She is a writer, producer, and preservation activist.
She provided the catered tea, the farm and the staff for this event.
And, she made a genterous donation to the Cox's Station Chapter, of which she is a member.
Photography was not allowed at the farm,
but we took the above photos at the Ole Bloomfield Meeting Hall in town.
According to my notes, the delicious menu included:
Heart-Shaped Sweet Potato Biscuits with Shaved Ham
Herb Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes
Cranberry Chicken Salad Cups (phyllo shells)
Vegetable Spread Canapes
Savory Cheddar Scones
Southern Scones with Mock Clotted Cream, Jams and Honey Butter
Welsh Miner Cakes
Chocolate Mint Cookies
Caramel Pecan Tarts
Lemon Blueberry Bites
Nettie Jarvis Elixir (a custom black tea blend by Elmwood Inn)
We were invited to tour the first floor of the main house, one of several log cabin
guest houses and other reconstructed historic buildings on the grounds.
It was a lovely event dampened slightly by afternoon showers.
The staff was very gracious and accomodating.
Watch movie theaters this week for the release of the 4th in the series of of my familiy's favorite movies.
By the way, the star of this movie is originally from Kentucky, too.
