Jo’s hens tea party @ The Byrneleigh Hotel

Time flies, Jo’s hens high tea at The Byrneleigh Hotel was this weekend, which means that the wedding is almost here!


The theme for the tea party was roses, all the hens were decked out in their best rosy outfits, the bride-to-be herself was all ready with rose sundress, rose earrings, rose bracelet and two bouquets of roses from fellow hens.


Hen Gill helping to put on the veil on the bride-to-be. Does she look like a bride yet?
Time for food! We started off with a glass of bubbly each, scones with cream and jam soon followed and everyone had their individual pot of tea.


Our trays of tartlets, mini baguettes and petit fours. They were all very presentable and yummy.


This was one of our favourites, chicken and caramelised fig with brie mini baguette. Brie is my favourite soft cheese so I enjoyed this 🙂
blue cheese

I think most of the girls liked this blue cheese and walnut tartlet, the bite of sharp blue cheese shone through.

Roast beef baguette with a sort of cumin spiced paste on top. This was alright only.

Smoked salmon baguette. Overall, the food and service was pretty good and we all had a lovely time nattering away and drinking tea. I am liking these girly outings! If only my other sister Jan could join in! That would be perfect. The Byrneleigh Hotel itself was a perfect setting for garden teas, the lighting of the restaurant was really bright and sunny, tall ceilings and lots of greens everywhere. It was very lovely and cosy.

Thank you to all the hens for coming to Jo’s hens tea party and all their well wishes and thoughtful gifts. Special thanks to Gill for helping to organise and preparing all the prop.

Hopefully this hens tea party is an indication of Jo’s blissful marriage ahead filled with lots of laughter, sunny days and happy smiles.

    Wow the food looks good! I think your high teas are better than the posh ones over here, at least you have proper food.
