Since I got my vintage tea set for my Christmas I have been looking for a opportunity to use them. Now that my friend has come back from travelling and since I hadn’t seen my cousin and Auntie for a while I decided to have a vintage Afternoon Tea party. We settled on last Saturday as a day that we could all manage to meet up. So I invited one of my other friends and also my Mum to come along too.
I had been looking for other vintage items that I could use for my tea party which you can see here. I was also given things of my Gran’s that my Mum had. For the menu I decided to go with sandwiches: Cream Cheese and Cucumber, Ham and Red Onion Chutney as well as Egg and Cress. Some cakes: Mini Cupcakes, Mini Cream Cakes, Shortbread, Marshmallow Top Hats and Mini Scones with Clotted Cream and Jam.
I bought my groceries from Sainsbury’s and Marks & Spencer the day before and then got up at 6.45am (yawn) to start my baking and sandwich making. Some pics of my grocery haul:

Everyone had a really enjoyable afternoon and it was good to catch up with everyone. although it was hard work I will definitely do it again. One of the things that I will do is not to buy so much as typically there was too much food and I will now be eating cake for the rest of the month.
Have you ever hosted an Afternoon Tea Party? Or have you been to a posh hotel for their Afternoon Tea?
