Yesterday we went up the town for a few hours, we passed that well know Patisserie, several people were in having afternoon tea.


When we got back I checked on the website, £25 for afternoon tea for two.


As today was miserable and wet I thought I would bake.







So we had our own afternoon tea party .







Sponge with home made strawberry jam filling, with a rose water icing.


Fresh baked scones.....Lovely



I love it when the China is mismatched.



Some pretty napkins.




I to be looking for some more vintage china at the carboot tomorrow.

It was a lovely afternoon tea.

  1. That looks so good. I'm craving some scones now. I went out for afternoon tea with my friend last week as a special treat. It was lovely but I always think I could make it just as (if not even more) delicious myself. And you avoided the rain too. Even better. Your china is gorgeous. X

    1. We had Earl Grey, we drink different sorts of teas different times of the day, but afternoons is always an Earl Grey.

  4. Fit for a king and queen! It all looks really delicious and I agree, mismatched china is the best.
    Actually, reading this when I'm feeling a tad peckish was not such a good idea ~ lol

  8. For a long time we lost the art of afternoon tea. So glad to see it back, mum made every Sunday a afternoon tea, I loved to see everything home made laid out on the table.

    1. I know what mean, we always use to have an afternoon tea at the weekend like this but most of the time it is a cooked one, this made a lovely change and I think it will be back to once every weekend again now.

  11. Oh your table looks so pretty.
    Mismatched just looks so right I think. I can't be doing with everything all matchy, matchy-x-
