Looking out at this dreary autumn day, the summer seems a distant memory. As the nights are drawing closer, and the central heating is being cranked up; settle down with a nice brew and a biscuit and reminisce with us. 

On the last weekend of August we attended a corporate celebration. 25 years in business – Glasto-style! As with all good festivals, the day started off bright and sunny. We’d had a rather exciting trip over to Surrey, travelling passed Hampton Court Palace and getting lost down some side streets. Disaster nearly struck as we turned into the festival site, a car behind us had clearly decided that it wasn’t worth paying attention to our indicator and overtook us AS WE WERE TURNING! We’ve mentioned the brakes before and to our surprise, emergency stopping is possible. Thank goodness! The site was already looking amazing with huge tents, a main stage, various bars and these huge flowers poking up out of the ground. We started setting up the “English Tea Garden” complete with white picket fencing and lollipop topiary.We had lots of delicious bakes on offer for the hungry festival goers:

* Chocolate Brownies
* Lemon Drizzle Cake
* Vanilla Cupcakes
* Scones with lashings of Clotted Cream and Jam
* Rocky Road
* English Madelines

All served with a choice of Char Teas or Pink Lemonade and served on our vintage China. The day was full of music, laughter, floral headbands, OppoSuits and smiles. It was really nice to see a company treating their employees to a celebration. Even though the rain eventually came, it was a brilliant day that we thoroughly enjoyed being a part of it. Thankyou to Air Charter Service – we hope everyone enjoyed the cake 🙂

After a busy summer, there was only one more thing we needed to do…                      There is no better end to a summer season than relaxing on the beach. Thanks to everyone who supported us 🙂 

Lots of Love

Another Day, Another Tea Party

It almost feels like a lifetime ago, but on what was to become one of the last days of summer we attended a Corporate Tea Party on the edge of the New Forest.

Armed with gingham tablecloths, a whole host of vintage china, our delicious Char Teas and of course our delightful Citroen H Van, we turned a meeting room into a delightful space for a tea party.

Inside we laid up all the tables with crockery, whilst outside our Citroen H Van was parked up decorated with bunting and all the delicious cakes were on show.

On the menu we had quite a selection:

Chocolate Brownies
Rocky Road
Lemon Brownies
Mini Victoria Sponges
English Madeleines
Mini Vanilla Cupcakes

With the event expecting around 100 people that was ALOT of cake! At the event there was a self-service tea station, fully stocked with our selection of Char Tea and outside the cakes were served on our vintage side plates.

We couldn’t have been luckier with the weather, it was a typical late summers day with temperatures in the high teens and sunbeams coming through the leaves on the trees.

It was a lovely day to see out the last of the summer sun, can’t wait until it returns next year!

Lots of Love
