Tea is Served

Earlier this week, my friend MN came over for a tea visit. Our place isn't exactly together yet, but presentable enough. I made a pear-almond upside down cake, some tea sandwiches, a little salad, and tea, of course! And I had wee tea ready for our little ones as well. It wasn't exactly easy to eat in peace with the little monkeys dangling from us, but we had a really nice time. Tea is so fun. (The upside down cake recipe is in Vegetarian Cooking For Everyone, in case you're interested. I didn't fan the pears right, but it was sooo delicious.)

That pear cake looks enormous! Love the colours of your red tulips with the blue table runner - stunning. How fab that you put all that together when you're still settling in to your new place!

Your tea party pics look fabulous. It must be that time of year because I had a tea party recently too.

Tea! Thanks for the comments :) To a kiss from the past...the plate is from Anthropologie and was part of a series of 4 different styles. I just tried to find it on their site but didn't see it, but I only got the plate a few months ago. I love it.
