At Home in Mitford Book Review Teaparty

This week we hosted our first Book Review - At Home in Mitford by Jan Karon. What a delightful time we had sharing together our thoughts and relishing in the sweetness of this wonderful book. We all deemed it a classic as it is a book you can read over and over again. One of our guests said, "Oh, I loved visiting Mitford again..." If you haven't had a chance to read this  series, we would highly recommend it!!

The book review included a buffet tea - here is a sampling of the menu:

A Picnic in Baxter Park
August 2010

The Rector’s Artichoke Dip and Crackers
Mitford’s Fresh Fruit With Dip and Cheese Bites
Cynthia’s Chicken Salad Croissant

Puny’s Lemon Yogurt Bread and Spread
Miss Sadie’s Scones with Toppings

Dooley’s Gingersnap Cookies
Esther’s Marmalade Cake
Follow Your Heart Sugar Cookies

Of course, we had to try out Esther's famous Marmalade Cake...I was a little intimidated by this know how it is, when you don't plan on taking something somewhere, it always turns out, but when you NEED your baked item to turn out, sometimes it doesn't! That was my biggest fear with the cake...and "would it taste good?" Well, the answer was "YES, it tasted fantastic!!" and despite our turned out beautiful.

Hope you enjoy the pictures...perhaps you will join us again in the future for another Book Review Tea Party!!


  1. I really love this theme for a theme party. I had wondered about the Orange Marmalade cake. Your cake looks gorgeous!

  2. Your cake looks wonderful. I have copied alot of the recipes of the internet but not made one yet! Your looks great and I am sure tasty more than great. I am not familiar with this book but need to learn about it!
