Traditional Afternoon Tea

Three generations treated themselves to a traditional afternoon tea at the 
Full silver service was in use, as was pristine starched white table linen.

We were served tea in Royal Albert 
Country Rose tea cups.
(As was the hot chocolate for the youngest generation - all of four years of age).

Each serving comprised petite fours, cucumber,cheese and dill sandwiches, savouries, pastries and scones with jam and cream, served on a three tier cake stand with matching plates.

All enjoyed in a setting reminiscent of the nineteenth century.

I haven't linked to Terri's Tea Cup Tuesday in a while, but I think this occasion warrants a link.
Thanks Terri for hosting.

  5. What a beautiful tea spread! How lovely that three generations of you were able to sit here and enjoy such fine tea and conversation. The OCR china looks fabulous on the table.
    Thank you so much for sharing your occasion with us.

  6. Thanks all for the lovely comments. My Grand Daughter cried when they took her 'flower cup' away but all was well again when they served her hot chocolate in the cup!
    Must admit that the OCR china is one of my favourite.
