The Full & Fabulous Flowery Afternoon Tea at Lytham Hall 20th January 2010

The tables were laid with Paul Rowley's beautiful vintage china, Tulips & Pussy willow graced the centresNicola Howard & Edward entertained the guests as they arrivedIt took a little while for everyone to get warmed up
But once they were warm there was a good bit of chatting going on
Ben was looking after everyone
I welcomed the gang to a raucous applause

So to the first creation a giant tea cup filled with Hyacinth but there was so much more to come
The lovely and seriously talented Jonny Draper was recording it all and all the photographs apart from this one were taken by him and very brilliant they are too

Nicola Howard Soprano singer extrodinaire sang an ironic tune that lifted our spirits"Summertime"

Presentations of Flowers and wine were made to Nicola & her fabulous Pianist Edward
Then to follow "Summertime" I though something a little more tropical was in order
Proteas & Pineapples
Super Chef Paul Rowley brought out the savouries

The completed tea cup design
The vintage vases filled with blossom & Roses
Hurricane lamp surrounded by blue spring blooms
Chef drew the raffle
There was as always lots of excitement
And then some glum faces when it was all over
But Don't worry Mrs Acton we'll be back to do it all again on the 4th of February


Hi your dress! The colours soooo suit you!

Flowers are fab as always x
