And that’s how I spent yesterday afternoon - a ladies afternoon tea. I invited a group of beautiful girls to share our newly renovated home over some delicious treats, tea and a good old chat.
I know I had a wonderful time and I sincerely hope my guests did too. I love the experience of high tea; the tradition, the style and the timeless elegance of another era. The Tea Room at the Queen Victoria Building in Sydney offers the experience and it’s definitely worth a visit. So with all that in mind, I set about planning and delivering an elegant afternoon tea.
Herb, garlic and parmesan pastry rolls
Cucumber and tzatiki sandwiches
Ham and tomato sandwiches
Cherry ripe chocolate cupcakes
Mini vanilla cupcakes with pink buttercream icing and sugar butterflies
Apple and cinnamon muffins
Cookies and cream truffles
The girls brought some delicious dishes of their own to share:
Chicken and vegetable rice paper rolls
Lemon pie with hand made pastry
Rich chocolate cake (containing four blocks of chocolate and double cream)
All accompanied by a selection of tea.
With my new camera in hand, I snapped some images to share. A huge thank you to my gorgeous friends for a lovely afternoon, despite the mid afternoon downpour.
