The brunch bunch

by | Apr 25, 2008

I hosted another brunch in NJ on Saturday and eleven of my very wonderful friends and family members showed up. We all met at High SocieTea House in Wayne, which is located right off Rt. 23 South, and is a quaint establishment that can, surprisingly, hold a large group like ours. While High SocieTea House also caters to special event gatherings like bridal showers and the like, it is a wonderful little place to spend an hour or two drinking some very fancy-flavored teas (such as Tibetan Tiger and Chocolate Mint) and noshing on the prix fixe menu, which ranges from $9.95 – $24.95, and comes with a delicious assortment of tea, food, and dessert. The majority of our table chose the Light Tea ($11.95), which included tea, scones, quiche and soup or salad, and a sweet muffin, and some chose the Queen’s Tea ($24.95), which came with all of the above plus assorted finger sandwiches, a variety of small pastries, and a plated dessert.

As always, we had a fantastic time catching up with each other and sharing funny stories. If I said this once, I’ll say it a gazillion times: I am unbelievably blessed to have such wonderful, intelligent, creative, and loving women in my life. They are truly a built-in support system and I couldn’t ask for anything more.
