Yesterday I celebrated my birthday. A friend told me that I am on the wrong side of forty now. Guess I am, but I am very happy to be there!
What a glorious day it was. We had sun, some clouds, high temperatures, and our garden looked like a dream with all the blossoms and spring flowers. It was the perfect setting for an afternoon tea with friends and family. We went early, so that I could fill some vases with flowers, get rid of some weeds that caught the eye, and decorate the tables.
I did manage to do all my own baking; blueberry muffins, maple pecan muffins, cupcakes, scones and some rocky road cookies, but it was quite a task. I had to think of Katy Noelle of the blog In the Sunny Spot, who hosted a afternoon tea for a group of ladies in March and could not get cucumber sandwiches out of her head........ Yesterday, I felt exactly the same!
Unfortunately I did not manage to take much pictures, but I hope the ones I posted give you an idea of how the garden and the food looked like.
Sorry I haven't been able to leave a comment this weekend, but I will make it up to you. Wish you all a lovely new week!
Lieve groet, Madelief
