Afternoon tea

So on Sunday I had my first fun event of April and went out to afternoon tea with my friend Wendy and 7 of her friends.
Wendy celebrates a special birthday this year, but as it is on Christmas Eve, when most people don't want to go out and celebrate a birthday, she decided to have a year of celebrations instead!
Here is Wendy with an early birthday card!

The china on the table was so pretty, as were the flowers, which we found out were artificial!

The starfish and seashells in the frames made a very pretty background for the photos.

The cakes and sandwiches were absolutely delicious, as were the scones and cream!

We also each had a mini trifle with a Madeleine cake. For such small portions I got very full, very quickly!
Another shot of pretty china.
