|Heavenly Scent Herb Farm in Fenton offers afternoon teas in the garden|
Delicious scones, tasty tea and sweet desserts served on pretty, vintage china in a colorful garden with a nearby waterfall and faeries all around.
If that sound like paradise, it is - more specifically, afternoon tea at Heavenly Scent Herb Farm in Fenton.
This month, my cousins, Dianne B. and Kathy F., and I had the pleasure of taking part in an outdoor tea event at Heavenly Scent. Our hostess was Kathy Matthews, who, along with husband, Steve, own and run the working farm.

We were served a full afternoon tea, by Kathy, and her top-notch assistants, in an outdoor pavilion that provided shade and comfort on hot August day.

Because of the heat, iced tea was served which was delicious and refreshing. Tea fare included two types of scones, a mint fruit salad, a chicken salad croissant and a divine parfait dessert that had my name on it!

|Cream and curd for scones - all divine!|

|Dessert - so good, I put my name card on it!!|
The outdoor repast concluded with a fun craft activity. We were all given ribbons and beads to make a friendship bracelet. Kathy demonstrated the "magic" that makes the ribbons lock together. It requires two people to twist the strands, hence the name of this special bracelet.

After our afternoon tea, we strolled the grounds which includes a faerie garden and an outdoor reception area perfect for weddings (which they do host here!).
