It's a Nancy Drew Tea Party





Happy October, My Lovelies!  You're invited to a Nancy Drew Tea Party kicking off a month of Literary Fridays featuring my favorite sleuth.  


First off, I'd like to share with you my inspiration:





I was inspired by the October 2017 edition of Country Living Magazine.  There's a feature on hosting a Nancy Drew Halloween Party for adults, and it's about the cutest thing I've ever seen.  If you grew-up reading Nancy Drew and enjoying her adventures with Bess, George, and Ned, you must buy this issue before they're gone.
I was sold when I saw the adorable magnifying glass cookies!


Although the party in the magazine is an evening Halloween party, I decided to host a Nancy Drew Tea instead.














MENU:

Scones with Lemon Curd
Magnifying Glass Cookies
Tea








I made the cookies, and they were freakin' hard!  Mine aren't Pinworthy live Country Living's, but that's okay.  We still had fun!









I love lemon curd on plain scones!










This tea party is a kick-off for October's Literary Fridays!  Every Friday in October I will be featuring a favorite Nancy Drew book.  I hope you'll get your inner sleuth on and join me every Friday this month and celebrate America's favorite detective!










Did you read Nancy Drew Mysteries when you were growing-up?  Do you have any favorites?


Until next time...

Blessings!
Ricki Jill

  1. Big fan of lemon curd, scones and Nancy Drew! It's been so long since I read them, I can't remember a favorite. My magazine arrived a couple of days ago and I noticed some great-looking food in there. I think I need to take another look.

  3. My sister and I read all the Nancy Drew books, but it's been way too many years to remember specific stories. I have this issue of the Country Living magazine. I like your take on the idea. '-)

  4. I've always loved Nancy Drew and it would be hard to pick a favorite. But I found the cutest book in the library lobby this week...and bought it. Clues for a Real Life, The classic wit and wisdom of Nancy Drew. I've had fun reading it! Love your beautiful table...what a cute idea! Hugs!

  10. Very cute idea and your table is lovely....wow, those yellow roses!! I did not read Nancy Drew growing up so I am not familiar with the books, other than selling a bunch in my Etsy shop once! Not sure how I missed reading them!

  11. How did I miss this? Love Nancy Drew (and just about any mystery!) and this is such a fun idea. I'll have to check out the magazine, too. Your table setting is lovely and the tea treats sound delish! Love this idea!

  12. I love this! You did a fantastic job and what fun! When I was a girl, I loved Nancy Drew. I read them all, and all the Hardy Boys, Dana Girls, and Bobbsey Twins. A friend of mine had really old copies from the 30s that she would sometimes lend. I guess they belonged to her grandmother. The really old ones had great vocabulary. xoxo Su
