Royal Wedding Celebration at Home

April 28, 2011

You can call me a bit of a voyeur, at least when it comes to royal weddings, and I will be joining many people tonight as we take in the royal wedding.  When I was a teenager I sat up in the middle of the night and watched the wedding of Charles and Dianna.  Here is the new millennium and I am at it again, of course watching their son, William, marry his bride, Catherine.  This time I will be sitting up in my own living room and I have prepared a bit of an appropriate menu to tide us through.  I really love high tea, so this is my theme for the night. 

****Susan’s Fancy Wedding Tea Menu****

Fruit salad

Bristol Cream

Salmon pinwheels

Carrot ginger rectangles

Egg squares with fresh chives

Potted ham wedges

Cucumber fingers

Murchies tea

Petit fours with raspberries or blueberries

Lemon shortbread

Sparkling wine and orange juice
