Garden-Party Tea for Mother’s Day

This Mother’s Day, why not host a tea party and invite family members and close friends who are mothers. A garden fragrant with springtime flowers provides an idyllic setting for the occasion. Begin the celebration with smoked trout mousse and chilled potato-leek soup. Then serve traditional teatime fare, including dainty sandwiches and buttery orange-currant scones. Bite-size tartlets filled with chocolate and topped with fresh raspberries will prove irresistible. Pour freshly brewed tea along with raspberry Champagne cocktails—and raise a toast to the moms in your life.
