Today a dear blogging friend, Carolien, came over so we could do our handwork together. I did some patchwork and she did a little patchwork and stitching. I decided it would be fun to do an English tea for our lunch.
I set out my Wedgwood dishes with my etagerie filled with things I made for us to enjoy with a hot cup of Earl Grey tea. It has been a long time since I did a tea for anyone and I had fun putting it together to treat Carolien.
Our menu today was Turkey and Leek Quiche, Cucumber and Lettuce sandwiches, Stuffed Cocktail Tomatoes, Scones with Lemon Curd en Marscapone and chocolate cookies.
We had a touch of summer on the table when I used some pretty napkins sent to me by another blogging friend Regina. These napkins remind of her and her pretty garden.
I now realize that I miss doing a tea for people and should try and do it more often. I only wish I could treat more of my blogging friend to a tea...
