Strawberry Tea with the Girls (and Boys)July 19th, 2010
Although there are no boys in this photograph, I promise you they were there; one, the partner of our host, Signe Johansen, was behind the camera and the other, a friend of theirs visiting from America was (quite sensibly) staying safely out of the way. The poor guy had literally just arrived following a week ‘up north’ only to find himself suddenly sharing a tea and a scone with a room full of crazy blogging girls. Unsurprisingly, he looked quite bewildered!
But, crazy though we may be, we were getting together for a very good cause. Eating. Oh, and also to raise money for Breast Cancer Care.
When I blogged about the Strawberry Tea campaign Signe of the blog Scandilicious was keen to get involved and lost no time in organising a tea. And so it was that we all gathered round at hers last Saturday afternoon.
Signe put on a truly fabulous spread, with hand baked goodies such as cupcakes, scones and a chocolate sour cream cake, teas, elderflower cordial and Pim’s, along with cherries, strawberries and clotted cream. She did us all very proud indeed.
There are still many weeks of summer left so why not hold your own Strawberry Tea? For an information pack and lots of inspiration, visit the Strawberry Tea pages on the Breast Cancer Care website.
