and I've looked through my books for the best recipes,
I've set out all my special ingredients,
and found the perfect pot for my pumpkin tea brews,
so I'm ready for some magic in my kitchen!
Maybe a Pumpkin Fizz to begin--an American twist on Pumpkin Juice?
(My friend Lauren brought me these beautiful flowers as a hostess gift!)
I have set out two place settings, so please choose your seat,
so we can get to the feasting! Each place setting has a menu,
And here are the results of all my mixings:
As always with my parties, first we start with savories!
These cucumber sandwiches, served with cream cheese mixed with ranch and dill, have witches hats of their own and the pimento cheese is served on fresh pumpernickel flying bats. Firewhiskey was a nice touch with marmalade and brie, with Acromantula eggs ending this course. Have you read Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them? I've heard that text has a whole section on those giant spiders.
Next we have pumpkin cranberry scones, with clotted cream and pear butter.
(the pear butter also had maple flavors!)
And I hope you still have room, because it is time for dessert!
I've heard my pumpkin pasties are as good as those served on the trolley on the Hogwarts Express, but my personal favorite from this party are my chocolate frog cupcakes.
The mini-chocolate frogs are just like those served by Honeydukes in Hogsmead (I would know, I just visited last year!). The cupcakes are chocolate with milk chocolate ganache filing and white chocolate buttercream. Very chocolate-y if I do say so myself!
Before you go please take your favor,
and I hope you had an enchanting evening here with me!
There are five different owls in this tea party post. Did you find them all? I wonder if we use Owl post here in the US? I guess well find out in a couple of weeks when Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits the theaters!
