Morning Tea.

I was invited to a friends house last week for morning tea. Lucy is the only female in her house. Her husband and boys love nothing more on the weekend than riding dirt bikes up the mountains in the middle of nowhere and returning home caked in mud. Not much call in her house for delicate florals!

Now Lucy decided that she wanted to indulge in some proper formal girl time and arranged for a bunch of us to have morning tea with her. We were to bring nothing, she was going to bake and prepare it all herself. When we arrived she was piling high plates of delicate smoked salmon and cream cheese sandwiches, strawberry custard tarts, meringues, lemon tart.... Lots of teeny tiny morsels of delight.

We sat and talked and poured endless cups of tea after tea into lovely fine china and talked and talked and talked! It was so lovely to just sit and enjoy some female company. An old fashioned style of morning but one I would be very happy to repeat in the future. Not sure my waistline could cope though!
