So, today is St. George’s Day, although like many of us, it may have passed you by. For some reason, we often let this patron saint’s day go unnoticed, so this year we are encouraging people to buck that trend and celebrate in style!
What could be more quintessentially English than a luxurious afternoon tea? Here at Vanilla in Allseasons, we love to prepare and serve them for parties, weddings and special events.
Why not make this St. George’s Day a special one and try creating your own? Set the table with fresh flowers, bring out the best china, put up some colourful bunting and serve up an elegant English feast!
Afternoon tea essentials include –
*Fresh and crisp cucumber sandwiches served on soft white bread
*Creamy egg and cress served on a rustic wholemeal
*Sweet fruit scones with clotted cream and jam
*A selection of delicate cakes.
Whether you have time to bake the cakes from scratch or buy them in from your local bakery, ensure that each morsel is carefully sliced and neatly presented to give that authentic feeling of luxury. Remove the crusts from the sandwiches and present it all on pretty vintage china or tiered plates.
Serve it all with a pot of fresh tea or perhaps a glass of icy fizz if you’re feeling frivolous. Whether teacup or champagne flute, be sure to raise it high to good old St. George!
