Mother's Day

Oh what a lovely day we had with our 41 guests! Our tables were dressed in the colors of spring and a menu of delicious food was enjoyed by all. Our menu consisted of the following items:

Fresh Green Salad with Orange Slices, Strawberries and Almonds
Chicken and Vegetable Tea Cup Pies with a Heart of Puff Pastry
Italian Herb Biscuits with Herbed Egg Salad
Pear shaped Tea Sandwiches with Cucumber and Herb Cream Cheese
Vanilla Fat Rascal Cookies made into Mother's Day Hats
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
White Chocolate Cashew Scones, Cinnamon Chip Scones and Dark Chocolate Orange Scones
French Chocolate Macaroons
Lemon Curd, Strawberry Jam and Clotted Cream
Choice of Hot or Iced Tea from our Tea Listing

A porcelain flower box was also given to each person as a small token of our appreciation. We had many, many wonderful guests who delighted us with laughter and enjoyment of each other's company. We could not have asked for a better day!

Many thanks to our terrific Ruby Pear team who worked tirelessly to make all of our guests feel special. We could not do it without you and won't ever be able to say thank you enough!

We did lose one team member in the past couple of weeks due to the fact that she and her husband are smack dab in the middle of trying to get their new winery operational. We wish Becky and Brian all the best in their adventure with their Country Moon Winery. Prune Becky, prune! Please stay tuned for the news of their opening date. We will keep you posted!

Please enjoy the photos and we'll post something fun again next week!
