Hosting Afternoon Tea

On Sunday all of my favorite university girls came over for afternoon tea to celebrate a a birthday and the new arrival of gorgeous baby Harry. I got a little overexcited and even persuaded my mum to lend me my nanny's vintage tea set. No breakages....phew! Bubbles were definitely required for such a happy occasion, and I popped a strawberry at the bottom of the glasses for a summer feel. Like most, each of these girls is very specific about the tea they like best, so I make four different pots; English breakfast - my fav, Earl Grey, Decaf and then have a huge selection of new fruit teas from PG Tips.

The girls were so cute and all brought loads of goodies for us to nibble on, with Emily's cupcakes stealing the show. I styled the tea with a eclectic mix of accessories, with cute mini milk bottles filled with juice and paper straws, tea stands from Laura Ashley filled with sandwiches, scones and cakes and pistachio sundae dishes full of retro sweets.We totally overindulged, but well worth it. I hope I've inspired you to host your own afternoon tea party.
