Afternoon Tea

April 14, 2011

I love afternoon tea and for the past year have been collecting china… and I finally got to use when I had my Mum and Brother over for Mothers Day…

I even got some bunting out.

I love to decorate a table, I got some little pots and delicate flowers from the garden centre for some colour…

Laid out lots of lovely presents for Mum… and I gave her the best cup and saucer.

I had some pretty pom poms up too. I made these!

I love getting to use my pretty things!

Served tea in my pretty (shot sized) cups

Had to slip this recommendation in, this raspberry lemonade is so yummy, I got mine from the supermarket.

To start I made mackerel pate and served with some bread I made at my bread making lesson.

I also served egg salad and cucumber and mint finger sandwiches.

I also made some scones, served with clotted cream and jam of course!

Then later that day my lovely neighbour put some trellis up for me so I could finally get my Jasmin growing up the house.

And the little table decoration pots found a permanent home on the sunny window sill.

We are gradually growing our collection of pretties outside the front door!

    And Mum appreciated all the effort you went to, and the lovely presents! The Bonne Maman jam was also a nice touch for Mothers’ Day.
