Joining in with Elephant’s Child and others for Sunday Selections
Years ago bloggers had loads of fun organising ‘virtual’ events.
A bit like pandemic events these days – just like in real life except online😊
One of these was to be an Afternoon Tea.
So when I was talking about this to a friend she laughed and said
‘that sounds lovely…fabulous fun!
then followed up with ‘ but wouldn’t an actual tea party be lovelier?
We could have cake and little tiny sandwiches with no crusts
and cups of tea and all that!
And you know what, we could have it outside in the garden 😊
So I let her run with the idea just to see what she’d come up with
First of all she fancied ‘Low Tea’
Served on a low table on the deck
Then it was to set a little table up down near the garden – Champagne Tea she called it.
No cakes and pastries- just strawberries and cream and drinkies!
But not everything went to plan.
It was supposed to be a nice day but somehow the weather didn’t turn out to be that good. Just as I had everything set up a very fine rain started to come down
Strawberries ready to go – the roses were looking good
Then my dear friend (yes the very same one I’ve been talking about recently) walked in the door not feeling too well
No food had been prepared so she’d made a quick change of plan
And had popped into the local bakery – hey presto
Cream Tea – casual home style
We ended up on the deck having scones, whipped cream and jam (with butter for me).
Plus a few chocolate bits I had in the cupboard
