Tea and scones

Instead of the summer picnic that we had for our August meeting in the last two years, this year we decided to have a catered ‘posh tea’ instead. This turned out to be a stroke of luck, given the wind and rain that afternoon. Thankfully we weren’t holding on to gazebos that were trying to take off into the field! Valerie kindly organised the caterer, as well as finishing touches such as floral tea cups and table-cloths. Thanks to Margaret for providing floral table-decorations (despite the fact that she was on her way to catch a flight). We were treated to scones with jam and cream, a selection of sandwiches, several different cakes, and strawberries and cream. Naughty but nice! There was a little bit of stitching before tea was served, but when sticky things appeared the sewing was mainly put away. Here are a selection of photos of us stitching beforehand, and then enjoying the feast. If anyone is looking for a cake-maker or caterer, she is Janet Spoor at ‘Janet’s celebration Cakes and Catering’.

  1. What a lovely afternoon, right down to the crockery, dainty cutlery and roses. Thanks Val for organising it and have made a note of Janet’s details for possibly using her in the near future. Thanks also to those who served the tea, it always tastes better in dainty cups rather than mugs doesn’t it?

  2. Thank you to everyone who made tuesday afternoon so enjoyable . It was so good to be with you all. Congratulations and love..eileen

  3. I loved our “posh” afternoon tea, with cups and saucers. Everything was delicious and the tables were elegant with the beautiful flowers. Thank you ❤️
