Best of British Tea Time

Saturday was one more birthday celebration over tea.
My sister and I share March birthdays, so we try to get
together sometime during the month over tea.
So off to the Best of British for our own personal celebration.
It was my first time to have the full afternoon tea
and I was not disappointed.
Pretty Thistledown cozies wrapped our teapots,
mine full of Harney's Darjeeling - yummm!
Everything was so fresh, I just loved each bite.
It is hard to say which is my favorite, but Coronation Chicken
was soooo good, then there was egg salad, cucumber,
and bites of other delicacies.
Wishing I could remember each bite.
Whatever was in that triangle was also delicious.
Oh yumm, I loved them all.
It was fun to see our food delivered on this pretty cart.
Isn't the dessert plate pretty with the ribbon woven through it?
Just the right amount of scone with real cream and strawberry jam.
Traditional British through and through.
The sweets were the perfect end of a special birthday celebration.
Macarons, lemon/blueberry tart, Victoria sponge cake,
cheesecake, cookie, and petite-four.  Deliciousness all around.
Definitely worth stopping for tea time and a celebration too.

What a delightful place, and those scones with cream and jam look scrumptious. : )

Happy Birthday to your dear sister, Marilyn.

This looks unbelievably fabulous. No matter how good those scones were, though, I don't think they can possibly beat your cream scone recipe!
