Home alone. Afternoon Tea?

Yesterday I packed up some of my Vintage crockery into wicker baskets and lent it to a 19yr old for her Birthday Tea Party.

I have to admit I had slight palpitations watching it all go…but it’s all back home with me now safe and sound.

Mr D has gone off for the weekend, chasing that plane of his. And it got me wondering if we should have a tea party of our own?

I’ll set the table…if you could just let me know how many it will be for?

Please remember it’s a civilised affair around here… no feet o the tables please

You can invite your friends if you like…the more the merrier!

What music would you like to listen to?

I like this one myself

I find The Corrs perfect for dancing around the living room too..

But it’s so tiring! But Fun!

Did you enjoy it? Maybe we could have the party at someone else’s house next time?
