tea aboard the karina jean

Every year Katie hosts a forget-me-knot tea in honor of her daughter onboard the Karina Jean. The spread includes trays of vegetables with homemade hummus dip, lemon bars, anise + almond biscotti and lemon lavender shortbread cookies as well as cucumber and smoked salmon finger sandwiches. If you are inspired to invite your friends for tea, keep it simple and prepare the cookies in advance. Pick up colorful fresh veggies and fruits the day before and you are ready for the party. You can find the recipes for the hummus, anise + almond biscotti and lemon lavender shortbread cookies on this blog.
