High Tea!

Hi all, how is your weekend?
The craft fair was GREAT fun on Friday - I only took one photo of the stall (oops) but I am hoping to get the photos my friend took and then I will tell you all about it properly!

We have the bf's sister and fiancee staying with us this weekend. They have tried to visit us twice this year - the first time their flights were cancelled due to the Christchurch earthquakes, the second time their flights were cancelled due to the Chilean ash cloud, and when we went to visit them last month our flights were cancelled due to the snow in Christchurch! So it was a miracle they actually arrived on Friday (albeit 2.5 hours late and we'd had to cancel dinner at a new Mexican restaurant because the plane was delayed!!). 

Anyway I digress (sorry). I wanted to share photos from the lovely high tea the bf and I had last week at Martha's Pantry.....

Love the old tea cups and random spoons!


It was SUCH a wet Sunday afternoon....

Teeny tiny tea shop

I would love one of these for my house!!
The top tier - little cakes :)

Pinky up!!
Middle tier - pieces of scone and savoury frittata

Bottom tier - sandwiches and pate (I could only eat the veggie cream cheese one)
 



What a cute cake!

Does anyone else love the decadence of high tea as much as I do!?

    Glad that your boyfriend's sister and fiancee finally came, it must be a relief and really nice to see them again.

  17. I enjoyed visiting Martha's pantry too.. sometimes it's fun to do something a little different. I love finding new things to do in Wellington. I loved how each person got a different vintage spoon.. at our table ours were all travel destinations. The tea cozies and floral cups and saucers were a cute touch too. Are you vegetarian too?
