..of Intimate Proportions

Today's "Titanic Tea Party" was an excellent excuse to have friends come over for tea and to try some new recipes. Whilst the attending guest list was small, I was thrilled to have friends over to help me enjoy sweets, sandwiches and sunshine!

the table spread, complete with fresh flowers and my homemade tea trays!

Tea cups, sandwiches, leaves, and scones!

In all, the menu included fresh, handmade:
French Macarons with Chocolate Ganache
Hazelnut Shortbread Balls
Raspberry Tarts
Chocolate and Butterschotch Chip Cookies
Clotted Cream
Tea Sandwiches (made today):
Smoked Salmon and Chive
Blue Cheese, Walnut and Pear
Watercress and Cream Cheese
Crab and Watercress
Shrimp with Chili Mayo and Arugula
Cucumber Mint

And then there were the other little bits - Strawberries, grapes, fine china and fresh flowers! Delightful!
