Tea Party Recipes:

Decorated hats bob in the midday sunshine as a chorus of little girl laughter fills the air. Rebecca Edgar, affectionately known as "Dollbaby," began an annual spring tea party at her home in Opp, Alabama, five years ago to entertain her granddaughters and their friends. The main attraction is nibbling and socializing at tiny tables adorned with elegant tablecloths and fresh flowers. Good friend Shirley Culbertson prepares the tasty sweets including a magnificent Teapot Cake centerpiece.
