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.
