A Jubilee Tea Party!
An invitation to a High Tea is something to look forward to- but a HIGH Tea- In honour of Queen Elizabeth's sixty years on the throne- now that's something really special. Also a wonderful break from my two closest allies and partners in crime- the Lightbox and the Computer! ( Sorry guys- but you can't come!)
So we donned our High Tea Hats, best regal gear, white gloves- and set off last weekend for a trip to the country - to my brother and sister-in-law's house.
The town where they live is rather idyllic- small country town, large golf courses, heritage buildings set in beautiful old established gardens- very English!
We were greeted at the door by a "Royal" guard- resplendent in uniform.
Lots of British decorations- all the red white and blue was out in force.
Top left is my brother Peter and next to him my sister-in-law SJVH- who is not only a scrumptious cook, but sews and quilts so beautifully.
Bottom left, in the royal regalia is Jim and Lou- SJVH's sister and brother-in law.
Perhaps you would like a short introduction to the Party People.
There was so much to eat- cucumber sandwiches, of course - and goodies as far as the eye could see!
Hmmm- now where to start? That fudge looks rather yummy- why waste time on the savouries- when you can head straight for the goodies?
... And of course there are the toasts- To the Queen- in Latin!
And I just have to show you this- SJVH made this specially for the occasion!
Isn't it magnificent?
And, yes, I did get stuck in the door trying to leave!
Coming up next on the Blog:

Looking for Tea.
And of course, the next part of the Wish Quilt.
