love your life: high tea for 83








My beautiful grandma recently turned 83. To celebrate I decided to throw her a special high tea. My mum has 12 vintage tea sets that really set the scene. We had finger sandwiches (recipes below!), hot savoury food including pies, quiches and sausage rolls, cupcakes, scones with jam and cream, macarons and petit fours. We were so truly satisfied at the end of the meal!

Wow! That must've been so great for your grandma, what a sweet idea! There is little in life better than high tea if you ask me. Those little sandwiches you made look delectable and I am so envious of your mom's teapot collection! I definitely plan on having a mismatched collection of my own one day.
