Tea, Anyone?

We've been attempting to celebrate a milestone birthday for Jane with a special afternoon tea since early in the year and things finally came together yesterday. What a treat!

Her sister Linda hosted five of us and outdid herself.

The place settings were soft and floral, just beautiful; everything that you would expect for a tea.

There's just something so wonderful about bringing out the vintage cups and saucers and making an afternoon of it, isn't there?

And the birthday girl kicked in too, making lovely quilted favours for each guest - beautiful potholders filled with spring blossoms. They couldn't have been more perfect.

Everyone shared in the food prep so we feasted royally (if you are supposed to feast at a tea).

Fancy sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and Jane's strawberry jam, delicate cookies, chocolate covered strawberries, mini quiche, yummy squares and cream puffs; we wanted for nothing. The leftovers were divvied up into containers and there was so much that we were all able to enjoy round two for dinner at home. 

Happy birthday, dear Jane. Here's to many more wonderful years....M
