Tea Party Ideas + Scone Recipe

Tea Party Ideas from Thoughtfully SimpleAre you hooked on Downton Abbey like I am? I confess to catching on late and then bin-watching season after season (there could be worse things to binge on, right?). As the finale of season 5 is approaching (it’s Feb 22!) it’s time to start thinking about hosting a finale party. Because, why not? If you’re a fan of the show, it’s a must. If you’re not into the show, you can find any reason to gather the ladies in your life for a little tea … I’m sure of it.

Served up in mini glasses also make them adorable to offer to guests or little ones during your next gathering or special dinner.

Monster Eye Lollipops

homemade lollipops I’ve never made hard candy before. To be honest, the idea of making any recipe that requires using a candy thermometer has scared me in the past. But, this Halloween I thought it was the perfect time to put my fears aside and give it a try. I’ve always wanted to make homemade lollipops so I decided to start there. After doing a bit of research, I discovered that the ingredients needed are super minimal. Like, two. TWO. That’s simple enough for me!

I used Sugar In The Raw Organic White® which is unbleached and true to its natural color (like the original Sugar In The Raw®), but its finer crystals make it perfect for cooking and baking because it blends easily into any recipe. This was key for making our green lollipops!
