08 May Afternoon tea parties
One of my favourite parts of my job is doing afternoon tea parties – I love baking the assortment of cakes and treats and then getting to the venue and laying it all out on pretty vintage crockery. I’m always finding new tea sets, tea pots or cake recipes to include and, although I love all aspects of my job (perhaps excluding the washing up!), I have to say that afternoon teas are my favourite.
I thought I’d share some pictures from the afternoon teas I’ve done so far, and if you’re thinking about hosting a celebration soon I hope they give you some inspiration and ideas.
