Afternoon Tea.....Vintage Style.....

Hi Folks, can you beleive it's Thursday already, where is the time going? Last night I met up with my old friend Jane for dinner, we haven't really seen much of each other for about 6 years but thanks to Facebook we got talking and arranged to go out. It was so good to catch up, we use to have some right old laughs back in the day and was great to talk about all the things we use to get up to and also find out how the kids are getting on now they are teenagers. Thanks Jane for a great night, you haven't changed a bit.
On Tuesday Libby and I went to Any Occasions Cakes in Solihull for a Cupcake Workshop with Vintage Afternoon Tea. We had a great afternoon starting with a pub lunch, where we met Julie from our crop who was also on the workshop, so after an early lunch, we got to the workshop for a 1pm start.
Kathleen started off by telling us about the different icings and how to use the molds to make the decorations then we were given 6 little fairy cakes to decorate ourselves to take home. Here are some of my photo's taken from the day, *warning* photo heavy post.












I enjoyed decorating the cupcakes and loved how they turned out but my favourite part of the day for me was the afternoon tea. I loved all the vintage mismatched teacups, the traditional teapot and tablecloth, using tongs for the sugar cubes and pretty wild flowers in a vase. This is how tea should be served not that I drink tea but I enjoyed my coffee served like this !!!!
One last thing my I'd like to thank the girls from City Crafter Challenge Blog  for picking my postcard as this week's winning entry, I was absoloutely thrilled when I saw that I'd won.

Thanks for looking...........
