A Vintage Inspired Afternoon High Tea is an Absolute Delight!

It’s not often I stop to enjoy a home baked afternoon high tea of scones and cream. With everyone in lockdown due to the pandemic, there’s no excuse not to!

Scones are one of my favourite simple home bakes…quick and easy to do and most enjoyable to eat. Especially with a pot of tea!

It’s also most pleasurable when I use my favourite things to dress a table for high tea: a vintage tea pot and vintage table cloths handed down from my mother. I also love to dress the table with a fresh bouquet of flowers, what ever is in season will do.

 

 

… And the prettiest high teas always have flowers

Chrysanthemums have the loveliest table manners, don’t you think? Which are your favourite flowers for enjoying high tea?
