time for a spot of afternoon tea

 Little tip- instead of buying jars, buy the supermarkets cheap brand jam for around 30p and use those jars, so much cheaper! 










This weekend I did a little afternoon tea for my mums birthday. I had my Gran baking, Nathan making sandwiches and I was baking scones and the best ever brownies (so I've been told). It was lovely, I made my raspberry and strawberry cocktail and put it into jars with big stripey straws and decorated the table with bunting, photos and flowers in bottles. Whilst the rain poured down outside everyone tucked in, and over indulged on scones and clotted cream!
