International Tea

This past Saturday, Calli and I participated in a lovely event. It was the Girl Scout International Tea.



Several local Girl Scout troops from our area signed up to participate. Each troops was assigned a country and given a table. The troops decorated their tables in the theme of their assigned country and offered samplings of food from that country.

To kick off the day, each troop marched with the flag of their assigned country. After opening ceremonies, the tasting began!

Girls and parents got to walk around to all of the tables trying whatever they wanted. Each girl was given a "passport" with stamps from all of the countries represented at the tea.

Our troop was assigned Italy. Our table featured assorted flavors of biscotti. Some other foods offered "around the world" were:

dulce de leche

cappuccino

coconut cake

cucumber dip

pita chips

hummus

marinated olives

chips and salsa

Australian berry bread

tropical fruit kabobs


This was so educational and fun! I think it would be neat to taylor the idea into a party. Guests could each be assigned a country and bring a dish. Or, would it not be neat to do a progressive dinner with an international theme?
