Afternoon Tea

For Mothers Day my daughter gave me vouchers for Afternoon Tea at the Windsor Hotel. She took me last Sunday. Upon sitting down to crisp white linen tablecloths and serviettes, we were given a cake stand of Windsor scones, jam and cream, beautiful ribbon sandwiches and a selection of miniature savoury pastries. A glass of Brut accompanied the cake stand.
 The buffet table was laden with amazing slices, tarts, cakes and pastries with a flowing chocolate tower for fresh fruit and marshmallows to be dipped in. There were selections of teas and we chose to drink silver teapots of "Cleopatra's Champagne" tea. It was a blend of Rose Petals, Lavender and Rosemary. Very refreshing and soothing on the stomach after the feast!!!
It was a lovely mother and daughter afternoon. To top it off, the pianist in the foyer played my favourite piece of music, "Somewhere Over The Rainbow".
