Tea for Two

My dear friend and sister-in-Christ
invited me to her lovely home for 
an afternoon Tea

We share a love of all things

Laura loves to set a pretty table

She has a beautiful china collection 

and often uses different sets
for different seasons of the year 

Her corner hutch holds a collection of her grandmother's bone china

Aren't they perfect for a  pretty spring table setting

For our tea she choose her
Royal Blue and White set

I felt like a queen sitting down to
this exquisite tea

She prepared a lovely
selection of sweet and savory 
 delicacies for our tea

Every dainty bite was delicious.........

But when she brought out a plate of her 
freshly baked scones I was in pure heaven

and of course she had lemon curd 
and clotted cream to go a top 
her yummy scones

What a wonderful finish to a delightful 
afternoon cream tea

For those of you who aren't familiar with the 
term "Cream Tea"
(and I wasn't until my recent trip to England to visit my relatives) 
it's an afternoon tea (light meal) that includes a combination of
scones, clotted cream, and jam.

Sometimes referred to as a Devon or Cornish Cream Tea

Every Little Birdie says

Tea for Two with a special friend
A perfectly lovely afternoon
