I have a pretty, feminine tea party to share today, all the way from Portugal. This tea party display was put together by Sophia of Bistrot Chic, for a client celebrating Mother’s Day a little early with her mom and aunt. Although Mother’s Day has come and gone, ANY time of the year is right for a tea party.
I love using open shelving for food display and that’s exactly what Sophia did here….
From Sophia: “We used a piece of furniture from the house and styled a sweet cabinet in a rustic but elegant way that was the request of our client. She also told us she wanted no cupcake or cake pops, but something different which was a challenge for us!
Lot’s of fresh flowers were used, mainly roses but also gypsophilas. We spread some petals in the cabinet, as well as old family tablecloths, matching napkins and a tea-set. The result was a fresh white cabinet, styled in pink and yellow in a very romantic way.
Besides tea and scones, several other sweets from Taste Spot were served, such as marshmallows with lemon butter cream roses, mini lemon curd tarts with currants, berry pots with cream and mint leaves and “Lérias” which is a typical Portuguese desert made mainly with egg yolks and sugar, a desert that was created more than 500 years ago in a monastery and that remains in the Portuguese habits so far . The cake was made of chocolate and filled with raspberries and lime cream, as well as real raspberries and chocolate crumbs.”
