Our friend Belinda just moved back from London after 10 long months away. To welcome her back Sarah and I decided to throw her a homecoming high tea at my house. To prepare I stayed up the night before baking biscotti and making a tiramisu, I even bought a 2 tier platter for the occasion (it looked so cute!).
What's a high tea without a selection of teas and finger sandwiches. The teapot was a gift from Jacky's Mum and went really well with the theme of the day.
Also on the menu was....
Semolina cake, Almond biscotti and shortbread (all homemade). On the right - french onion dip with carrot sticks (Joel I made good use of your little dishes)
Chocolate truffles & creme brulee hot out of the oven
Jacky was really sweet and cut up some strawberries for us to have with our champagne
After the tiramisu and creme brulee we were too full for pavlova, we left it sitting in the oven
Welcome back Beli, thank you for the housewarming gift and thank you Sarah for helping me get everything ready!
