Afternoon Tea at Amy's

Celebration had begun hours before the Live Event with Ms. Paula Deen and RWoP last Thursday for the Philly Ladies. And our ultimate Southern Belle, Amy Hughes hosted the most beautiful Afternoon Tea I have ever attended. Proseco with crystallized hibiscus flowers, anyone? Oh, my! She went all out with the most amazing foods and drinks for us all. Here is just a peek at what we enjoyed at Amy's beautiful home in Isle of Hope.

Iced Emperor's Bride Tea was served in a punch bowl nestled in a boat! Ha, who would have thought. Many thanks to her best friend, Peggy Lee, who did a marvelous job decorating the tables.

Beautiful Shrimp Mold...

Pineapple-Carrot Ginger Cupcakes...

Strawberry Heaven Cream Cheese Cupcakes, Chocolate Cupcakes, Red Velvet Cupcakes...Amy loves to bake, can you tell?

Beautiful veggie crudites with local heirloom vegetables.

Pimento Cheese Sandwiches...

Assorted Greek Olives...

Salmon Cakes with Creamy Dill Sauce.

And THESE! Sushi Stacks with smoked salmon! Aren't these beautiful? And delicious as well.

With all her best silver and crystal out, we truly felt pampered and loved.

Thank you, Amy, for your most gracious hospitality! We are thankful to know you and call you our friends. And hope for many more exciting cooking ventures with you, my new cooking buddy!
