I'd serve a hot (or better yet in August an iced) Blackberry flavored Tea. You can find this at many stores, it's very yummy! (& it's purple)

To make the blackberry tea an even darker purple, add real (frozen) blackberries to the tea (you may want to strain out any seeds, or you can leave the blackberries whole & floating or sinking in the tea). Remember many people are diabetic so don't sweeten the tea, let them do it themselves.


Serve the iced blackberry tea in a big glass pitcher so the purple & the blackberries show through.

If you can't find a ready-made blackberry tea, then make your own with oolong tea & add frozen blackberries. Don't steep the tea more than 3 - 5 minutes or it will turn bitter!

You could even make a blackberry punch, look for recipes on the Internet. * As for foods, think Blackberry. Like blackberry muffins & cake or blackberry jams on crackers. Purple, Purple, Purple!

A really yummy, easy tea I found in a make-your-own gifts book is to mix 2 1/2 cups instant tea mix and 1 envelope of Kool-Aid, flavor of your choice. Then add hot water to make 2 gallons. We put it in the coffee maker to keep it hot (just take the innards out). We had cherry flavor, and it really got rave reviews. We also served cucumber-shrimp sandwiches, petit fours, lemon curd tartlets, etc.


You could ice the petit fours with lavender, and add white icing flowers on top. The tables were decorated in candles of all kinds and sizes (purchased at the thrift store), flowers (we splurged and bought fresh arrangements made in teacups), mirror squares (an old, broken mirror cut into squares and tiny photos in frames of church members at our Hallelujah Night celebration. It went over very well.

A Rainbow tea is a fundraiser done by churches or anyone. Our church is trying to raise money for a family life center in the back of the church. A rainbow tea consists of the different colors in the bible. Find the meaning of your color. The captains of each color have a "tea" with other member, friends, family for a celebration. Each color must decorate their table with items of your color. All food, containers, paper products and beverages must be the color of your team. Team members must wear that color as well. You decorate your table as you please but it must represent your color. Each team member and guest must give a donation of their choice. At our church, the table with the most money or guest will be recognized with a certificate. (07/18/2006)

Any ideas for a menu of purple foods for a rainbow tea?

By Starla from Columbia, SC


Purple Rainbow Tea Ideas

At our last ladies tea, "Legacy, Lavender, Lace" I made lemonade and then used a purple paste food coloring, found in craft sections under Wilton baking items, and Huckleberry syrup, used to flavor coffee. I added a little blue food coloring to make it lavender. The more blue, the more purple you'd probably have. Just a thought.


For decorations along with purple Irises, I bought a large amount of pickling or cheap salt and colored some with a purple paste food coloring. I poured salt into small globe shape vases and placed a purple votive candle in salt. White votives could be used also. When storing the colored salt, make sure it has had a chance to dry before sealing it in a baggie. (05/11/2009)

I use to put purple food coloring, Wiltons, in deviled eggs for the kids, was more fun to eat they said, plus got them to try them. Pickled eggs and beets is something else purple, kinda. Cucumber sandwiches made with cream cheese. You can add food color to that. A white cake made purple with the rainbow decorated frosting. Have fun. (05/11/2009)
