A Photo a Day of Christchurch New Zealand

Afternoon Tea Time for my Birthday!

Cup cakes, cucumber sandwhiches and scones with jam and cream

I’m so glad that afternoon tea is back in style. I love getting out the fine bone china cups and plates, the cute teapots, and the whole joy that people get out of eating petite snacks. The occasion was my birthday, and several of my friend

s out did themselves with their cake and cup cake decorating. Just superb. If you fancy buying a few of your own old tea cups, Shabby Chic Market is on tomorrow and you can be guaranteed there will be old china on sale there.

    Having your birthday party with friends and using antique china piled high with sweet petite treats galore is the way to do it up right! Happy birthday Michelle!!

    And many more!

    Cheers from Raleigh, NC 🙂
