Spring Tea

Happy Spring everyone,
Last spring I gave a little Tea at our farm cottage.

Here's a picture of my darling Granddaughter enjoying tea wearing her favorite tea party hat.

I made these cute and easy cookie hats for the tea.

The brim is a small sugar cookie baked and frosted.  The crown of the hat is a white Reeses peanut butter cup (I can only find these around Easter where I live).  Remove the paper and turn candy upside down and adhere to the frosted brim.  Pipe around the candy base with colored frosting  of your choice.  Decorate with large candy sprinkles or sugar coated flowers.  I had an abundance of Johnny Jump Ups last year and hope I will again later this spring.
Thank you for coming by to visit.  I will be joining Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for her "Spring Tea".

Hi Nancy, I enjoyed your spring tea. The goodies on your tiered server look pretty and so do the little cookie hats. Your granddaughter looks like she is having a great time! She looks so grown up with her hat. Love your china, too.
Blessings, Beth

Love the photos of your Spring tea party, Nancy. The pink tablescape is so delicate and perfect for tea time with your granddaughter! The tier-tray laden with tea food looks yummy, and I love the hat cookies!

You have laid out a beautiful tea party. Very sweet cakes in the shape of hats. I understand that your granddaughter likes to come. Drinking tea with a beautiful hat is fun for all ages. I wish you a wonderful day! Zinnia

What a lovely tea, Nancy! Your little lady looks all grown up in her pretty Spring bonnet, sipping tea! I love your cookie hats. They are simply adorable and I bet delish too. I LOVE Reeses! They are so pretty arranged on the plate. Thank you so much for joining me for tea today. Happy Spring!
