One of our favourite treats as a family is going out for afternoon tea, and with Easter approaching we wanted to treat ourselves to a special Easter afternoon tea at home.

With spare time being in short supply in our house, we decided, instead of spending hours slaving over a hot oven, baking all our own treats, instead we’d let someone else do the hard work for us!

Thanks to a Waitrose, we were able to take the kids along to our local store in Otley, where we each chose our favourite afternoon tea treats. Breads, sandwich fillings, handmade cupcakes and other special Easter goodies.

We all helped out in the kitchen, preparing our special tea; buttering bread and mashing eggs, setting the table, making tea for the grown-ups in our favourite mugs and pouring apple juice for the children. We tucked into a feast of sandwiches filled with pastrami & mustard, egg & cress, ham & tomato and soft cheese & cucumber. We couldn’t resist the temptation of delicious scones filled with seedless raspberry jam and freshly whipped double cream and the handmade cupcakes we’d each chose from the patisserie counter were divine. To end our feast we shared our first Easter egg of the year.

Needless to say we were all happily full afterwards, with plenty leftover for supper… and beyond.

How about creating your own little bit of magic this Easter hosting your own special tea party? If you have a spare chair and a tea cup & saucer I’d be happy to tag along too!

Disclosure – Waitrose provided us with a voucher to spend on goodies for our afternoon tea party.

Fussy, me? Why yes, yes I am! {Sponsored Post}

February 27, 2014

My birthday is on the horizon (17th March, just incase you were thinking of sending a gift basket or flowers) and people are starting to ask me if there’s anything I’d like, want or need. Now, I’m almost 100% certain a mid-week, child-free, all expenses paid break to New York is off the cards (mores […]
