Oh gosh, visitors are coming by. I need to have everything ready. Now which teapot should we use? The everyday one?
The Deco style one?
The thirties one?
Or the extra large one for group use. We may have many visitors to this tea party so this might be the one?
Now which china should we use? This Triillium is my favourite.
Or what about the Old Rose design?
Our cakes could go on Grandma's old plate or ...
the wooden platter made (whittled) for me by a friend, out of witch elm burr.
I asked for a bowl made out of a gnarled piece of wood and he came up with the goods.
Sandwiches - standard stuff or something a bit different? I don't want people to leave them because they don't like the filling.
banana and sugar - nah!
Marmite - nah, too controversial
cucumber - nah, as above
red onion and cream cheese - possibly
egg and cress - old favourite
tomato - perhaps, we've certainly got lots in the greenhouse.
Nearly there, just got my nails to do.
