Tea Time

Setting up... 

I had some wonderful girls over on Sunday afternoon for afternoon tea.  I'd been meaning to do something like this for a while and had planned well in advance.  Sadly, the numbers kept dropping off as the day got closer so there was a lot of food to be consumed and a lot of bubbly to be drunk between a handful of girls.  Not that we complained!  It was such a fun and relaxing way to spend a Sunday afternoon, just sit and chat and not do much.  A nice change to the usual running around that we all do on a daily basis.  I was a bit worried about some of the things I baked, especially the scones as it was the first time that I tried that particular recipe.  But I think it all turned out okay!

On the menu were chicken sandwiches, scones with jam and cream, macarons, strawberries, cupcakes and a lemon tea cake.  I might sit tonight and post some of the recipes.  

Definitely an afternoon I'd love to have again.


  1. Had a wonderful time! Scones were delish- thank you so much for having us :-) XXX

  2. It was such a delightful afternoon and all the food and drinks you had prepared and served were amazing! And everything looked so pretty too. X

  3. And I would not say no to any of the recipes - including the filling for those YUMMY chicken sandwiches.:-) x

  4. Everything looks wonderful, specially the flowers!!!

  5. Mmmm those cupcakes look amazing! And the flowers are just the perfect touch!

    pictures aren't loading properly. I'm not sure why but I think
    its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same results.
