Afternoon Tea

Wednesday, 10 July 2013

by Adele



Happy Wednesday Lovelies!

In my opinion, afternoon tea is one of THE most delicious treats!! I love it's heritage & the whole occasion of afternoon tea, which is generally made up of finger sandwiches, clotted cream scones & a selection of cakes/pastries.
You can actually pay a lot of money to have afternoon tea at some of the top London hotels.

When last week I received a gorgeous Vintage Chintz Cake Stand I couldn't wait to make my own Afternoon Tea for friends. It felt so civilised to sit in the garden & indulge!! 

My Afternoon Tea Menu...
Selection of finger sandwiches (egg mayo, salmon & cucumber, cheese)
Sultana scones with strawberry jam & clotted cream
Red Velvet cupcakes
Coconut macaroons
Walnut cake
Angel Slices
Selection of Teas


traditional finger sandwiches are made with crusts removed




the selection of teas I served





Thank you to Out There Interiors for my gorgeous cake stand!

Have a yummy Wednesday Lovelies

ooooh I love the set up. I love going out for a high tea afternoon compared to lounging around in a coffee shop! I love every chance of dressing up and wearing pearls and lace which goes so well for a high tea event. =)
