Final Hostess Tea Post -- Food!

One last hostess tea post!  It wouldn't be a tea without some yummy treats, so I whipped up some recipes I'd been collecting on my Pinterest Tea Party board.  Here I am with the goodies:

Here's everything ready for the guests:

These are candy bar tarts:

You can find the recipe for them here on

These are my take on mozzarella tomato bites (here's the link to the pin, but I haven't clicked through to the original site these came from because it is blocked by Pinterest):

Basically, I just halved my tomatoes, skewered them onto toothpicks, adding a bit of ciliegine mozzarella, and basil, then I lightly drizzled olive oil and balsamic vinegar over them, and sprinkled with a bit of sea salt.

These are scones (I confess, made from a mix!) and lemon curd:

Here are the chai cupcakes:

The recipe is from the Novice Chef blog.  I added little almond butterflies with icing bodies, inspired by this pin.

And, last but not least, here are the cannoli strawberries:

The recipe came from

I really liked everything, but think the candy bar tarts and chai cupcakes were my favorite.  Which one do you think you'd like best?

Thanks for stopping by!

I was partial to the strawberry cannolis - YUM!!! But the whole spread was fabulous.
