"Go on, go on, go on!!"

Yesterday, I got invited to Afternoon tea..at an old castle/ now fancy pants hotel, no less ( I know, very posh altogether!!) It was absolutely delightful, even though I had to keep a watch on my rather suspect table manners! But anyhoo I gots to thinking..

Wot does wan wear to a tea party? ( We had to speak in our posh accents for the day!!)

My reliable if slightly boring jeans were just not going to do..shoot! My friends struggled too but we all eventually agreed tea dresses would be the perfect option (It’s in the name I suppose!) Afternoon tea parties conjure up images of florals, swooshy skirts, leather gloves, lacey parasols & boater style hats for moi!!

Tea time!

I ended up sticking some flowers in my hair to get me in a Spring mood & gave my new Zara chinos their first run out too- Unforch they’re a bit on the big side, better get my sewing on & take them in!!

It was totally what I had expected, flowers galore, a cute dog to greet you & big, comfy garden chairs to sit on! And as for the nibbles, freshly baked scones, cucumber sandwiches & tasty chocolate treats- my mouths watering just thinking about them!!

Wan was well & truly impressed!!


Here’s some picks I might purchase for my next Afternoon tea…Think I could throw my own the next time though.  All I need is the sun to shine…& to unleash my creative side!!


Treat yourself to a well deserved cuppa..& a cucumber sandwich!!Xx
