Tea Party on a Sunday


#ourtablestories | Vol 30

Enjoying an afternoon tea while perched on a gilded hotel armchair is a fine British tradition, but hardly sustainable as a regular pursuit. Throwing your own brunch party means you can stick to your own budget, plus you can select your favourite finger food. Therefore, let's get started! xoxo, Le Plain Canvas

Step 1: Setup the venue

Start by extending your table and throw on a table cloth. In a few weeks back, we got a few crates from a garage. We went on fabricating it but sanding away the rough surface. End it with our very own lace tablecloth on. This help to create an English and vintage atmosphere. Pop some cushion on the ground and you are all good to go for your next preparation.

Step 2: Cutlery

Most importantly in the brunch party is to have a centrepiece for your table. For us we owned a 2 tiered cake stand in pink and polka dots. Besides, don't forget your teapot, teacups, cutlery and cake slices for serving. For a modern girl like us, we used jar and glasses for this hot afternoon to serve our Mandarin Orange Juice.

Step 3: Food on Cake Stand

For the Savoury we have Orange and Cranberry Tea Sandwiches, Ham Tea Sandwiches & English Cucumber Sandwiches. The sandwiches are cut into small pieces, it allow everyone to have bites of everything and yet not getting tired of having it. What is a brunch party without bright and yummy fruits? Thus we headed to the market in the morning to grab some fresh one. Thus we have Mini Fruit Tarts and Buttercream Lemon Cupcake.

"Do you feel like something is missing? Hmmm…

What is a Tea Party without Scones? It doesn't take long to whip up but if you want to get ahead, freeze a batch and defrost them in a low oven. Serve warm with lashings of jam and not forgetting the clotted cream. Ending the preparation with a cheese, ham and sausage platter and our party is all good to go.

Tea Party on a Sunday

This may sound like you're going to have a hectic preparation for that day. But no, most of them you could make it days ahead. Just a few touch-up and simply wear your perfect dress and enjoy the rest of the afternoon. If you do also wish to give your friend a little gift, wrap our Valentine's Rosa Bath bombs up into small packages with a name tag along with it. Perfect isn't it?
