RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE
TEA PARTY PUNCH, American
Old-Fashioned Afternoon Tea Party Would Be Fun for 'Sweet-16' Set
Certain occasions are dearly beloved by the feminine heart. One is the afternoon tea party, gracious, friendly and relaxed.
Young ladies in their teens are adopting this traditional form of entertaining for their own "just for the girls" parties. What could be a nicer way to welcome a new girl in school or celebrate a birthday or entertain a club group?
For this new version of an old-fashioned party, the menu includes dainty finger sandwiches, cookies, a gorgeous cake swathed in coconut honey frosting, and a pretty pink tea party punch.Wednesday, Jan. 17, 1962 - Bakersfield Californian
