Boone Tavern Hotel Christmas Afternoon Tea

Historic Boone Tavern Hotel hosted their third annual
Christmas Afternoon Tea on Saturday.
The hotel was decorated for the season, and Christmas music
was being played on the piano in the lobby as the 55 guests gathered.
Our family and our long-time friend and neighbor, Mary K
enjoyed a delightful menu developed by Chef David.
Southern Spoonbread is a Boone Tavern Tradition.

it is without the edible flower garnish in the center.
After the savories, the three tier server was brought to the table
with the Scones and Sweets
