Afternoon tea is a relaxing time of the day for me, especially if it is shared with friends. Back when I was getting married, a cup and saucer were often received as a wedding shower gift. This is one of those gifts; Royal Albert Bone China, Rose Marie Series "Noonday".
Blueberry muffins, hot from the oven are a nice treat with my tea. I used a new recipe for these that contains ground flax seed and whole wheat flour so they are very healthy. The blueberries were picked last year with some friends and I still have a couple of containers of them left in the freezer.
I really like plaid as you can see here with my pink and green tablecloth and lavender and yellow napkin.
A bit of honey is added to my tea but it can be messy and when dining out, how many restaurants offer it? Propped against the saucer is a little packet that contains a minature honey comb.
