For me, having afternoon tea is more than just drinking cups of tea and eating some amazing food with friends.  Afternoon tea is also about the decadence of times gone by and what better way to experience afternoon tea than eating and drining from crockery made by the world famous Wedgwood.  If you want glam and pretty crockery afternoon tea at the World Of Wedgwood will not disappoint.  The teas are served daily in their Wedgwood Tea Room; an elegant room where you will be served a contemporary and indulgent interpretation of afternoon tee with unlimited Wedgwood tea or coffee… View Post

Last October I was lucky enough to be in London for a meeting near Kensington Gardens and decided to visit The Orangery at Kensington Palace for afternoon tea.

We were shown to our table and out tea order was taken.  There… View Post

Earlier this year I went to York for a few days for my birthday.  On my birthday I was treated to afternoon tea on The Countess of York refurbished train carriage which is on display at the National Railway Museum.

Everything from the gold and burgandy interior carriage decor to the table settings and furniture takes you back… View Post

In 12 days time HRH Prince Harry will be marrying Ms Meghan Markle.  The wedding will take place st St Georges Chapel Windsor and will be televised.  Personally I am looking forward to this and will be spending time with friends watching the wedding and tucking in to an tea party.  To help celebrate I have written a week long email series with ideas for food and drink to serve at a tea party. The email series will include recipes for sandwiches, sausage and chicken rolls, mini quiches, scones, cheesecakes, cupcakes and a cocktail and non alcoholic fruit punch. I… View Post
