Afternoon Tea

It was my Mum’s birthday last week, so we had a Birthday Afternoon Tea today… invited some of the family round, sat around and talked, met my cute little cousin-once-removed (?) for the first time … a nice afternoon 🙂 I wanted it to be pretty, but easy to put together –


I put together the cupcake holders, but we didn’t have anything to put in them in the end.. My sister made cucumber sandwiches, to the most authentic recipe she could find..
Pink gingham seems to have been a theme..


Salmon and cream cheese little toast thingies, and macarons..


Dainty-ish scones and jam and cream..


We set the teapots up on the breakfast bench, each with a different tea.. we had Green tea and Jasmine, Organic black tea, Earl Grey, Masala Green Chai, and French Rose and Vanilla.. My Aunt brought extra teapots, complete with cosies..


What a hoot!


The Birthday Girl! (and my sister!)

Happy Birthday, Mum 😀
