Strawberry Tart Tea

Strawberry Tart Tea: The Charm of Home
With the strawberries in season I decided to keep making strawberry treats to go with my tea.  Today I made a strawberry tart.  I have two shapes of tarts here.  I will tell you how I made them tomorrow.

Strawberry Tart Tea: The Charm of Home
The little chintz tea cup is by Gracie China.  It has roses all over it but, I thought the colors made it look a lot like the strawberries in full bloom in my garden.

Here is the saucer.

I have made a long strawberry tart and put it into this pewter serving dish.  I have another picture of it for tomorrow where you can see the crust better.  This tart pan was provided by Wholeport.com.

This is a little round strawberry tart made with a Wilton 4-inch tart pan.
I am seeing big boxes of blueberries in the grocery.  I think I will make another strawberry cake and then I will have to feature some blueberry recipes.

Yum; your berries look delicious, Sherry. The chintz teacup is perfect and it does remind one of strawberries. Lovely tea, as always. Thank you for joining me for tea.

Boy does that tart ever look delish!

Your china is gorgeous.

Oh, my goodness! That strawberry tart looks amazing. Strawberries are my very favorite fruit. If the recipe is easy enough I may make it for my Daughter's Beatrix Potter themed first birthday party. I'm looking for all sorts of garden themed dishes. Yummo! ~ Jamie

What beautiful strawberry tarts to have for tea time. I love the long rectangle shape on the serving tray. Your chintz flowered cup and saucer is lovely with the strawberries. Have a great week!

Hello Sherry, I would love to have a teacup just like that one! I need to work at getting a few photos and tea shots so I can join in these parties! I worked all afternoon with a new setting on my camera. I have so many new things that I want to learn to do! I guess I should write a post on that too!
Blessings, Roxy
I will be watching for the recipe!

Love your pretty teacup Sherry. I am loving all of the fresh fruit. Tonight we had a bowl of blackberries and raspberries topped with a dollop of whipped cream. Nothing as gorgeous as your beautiful tarts, but sure did taste good! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
