I had a couple of my friends, Caroline and Samantha over for a little vintage afternoon-tea picnic a few days ago. We had a delicious meal (because afternoon tea is definitely a meal!) of chicken salad sandwiches, cucumber sandwiches, scones with lemon curd and Devonshire cream (which was to die for!) nectarines and fruit salad, lemon-blueberry cake and peach iced tea. We listened to a swingin’ mix of Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Glenn Miller, Bing Crosby and Andrews Sisters music and even got in a little swing dancing!
We had such a lovely (ahem, er….swell 😉 ) time and I think that this is something we should do more often!
