21st Birthday Homemade Afternoon Tea



This year for my birthday my mam went through all the effort to make me my own proper afternoon tea! We ummed and ahhed about where to go and after not being able to settle on anywhere my mam said she would make me my own, for me herself and my boyfriend, knowing all my favourites! 

I think making your own afternoon tea is such a sweet idea, my mam did a great job! She had a little stand and table decorations,  We started off with finger sandwiches - cheese savoury, egg, seafood and tuna and sweetcorn. My mam also made cheese and plain scones from scratch, which she served with cream and jam. She made little individual carrot cakes again from scratch and Aero traybake which is my favourite! She then made little individual raspberry syllabubs which were divine! Finally she made my birthday cake, banana choc chip with caramel icing, so gorgeous! We washed that down with a pot of tea and a couple of glasses of sparking rose wine with raspberries! 

It was so much fun having our own little tea and I would happily stay in and make my own for another occasion! Have you had your own afternoon tea?
