You can also recreate afternoon tea in your own home. My sisters and I put on a little tea part for our Mum at the weekend. It was so fun to decorate and prepare all the food. The key is to make everything dainty and easy to eat with your fingers.
Here's what we included:
Sandwiches - we used white bread and cut the crusts off once we had prepared them.
- Cream cheese with herbs
Scones with strawberry jam and cream
(I used double cream whipped and added in some icing sugar)
Mini Fruit tarts
- Bramley apple
- Cherry Bakewell
- Blackberry sundae
- Maple syrup cake
