I confess I don't actually own any pretty old china, so I had to raid Bitchypoo's china, that she started collecting about a year ago. I found a lovely simple white tablecloth in my linen cupboard that I hadn't used for a long time, and set up a beautiful place to sit and enjoy a lovely cup of tea.
It was a beautiful day, the sun shining, birds singing, a gentle breeze and a perfect spot on the verandah for a wonderful afternoon tea.
I'm sorry some of these photos are a little dark as it's on the east side of the house therefore no direct afternoon sunlight. If you click on the photo to make them bigger you'll be able to see a little more.
Included in the food fest were some quintessentially Australian goodies.

Shay's idea is brilliant, it was so nice to set up out on the verandah, and also to pull out all the things I haven't used in ages. I will absolutely definitely be doing this more often. Maybe not having all the sweet goodies, but setting up the table and chairs on the verandah to have a nice afternoon cup of tea or coffee or for late afternoon drinks/cocktails with friends. What could be better than that!
