Happy easter

5 Apr

I can sense Jubilee fever gaining momentum already. A quick trip to M&S this week in search of easter goodies revealed shelves all but empty of chicks and chocolate and replaced with a swathe of red, white and blue confections. I’m not complaining – the promise of some good nostalgic celebrations, and an extended weekend is alright by me. And, of course, it gives us an excuse to indulge in one of life’s pure, uncomplicated pleasures too – a proper afternoon tea.

I was lucky enough to stop in town for a spot of tea with a friend yesterday and was served up with this impressive spread….

Never mind the amply stuffed sandwiches, exceptional scones and impeccable Earl Grey, I fell head over heels for this adorable little teapot…

There will be celebrations of another kind in our house this weekend. Amidst the easter egg hunts and inevitable chocolate overload, our little bunny turns two. Here’s a preview of the card I’ve whipped up for her this morning.
