An Afternoon Tea Inspired Photo Shoot

An Afternoon Tea Inspired Photo Shoot

It was such a joy to see this pretty garden party shoot inspired by the British tradition of afternoon tea on Style Me Pretty a few short weeks ago. Creating this festive spread for Holly Chapple's workshop at the lovely Hope Flower Farm was most definitely my cup of tea {pun intended!}

Delicate finger sandwiches of herbed chicken and smoked salmon graced the table, along side traditional British scones served with a delightfully sharp homemade lemon curd. Miniature shortcrust pastry tarts filled with raspberry jam and fluffy almond frangipane were the perfect dessert taster before tucking into the festivity's centerpieces; a three-tier Victoria sandwich cake adorned with seasonal fruit and a feathery light pavlova topped with crème chantilly and jewel-like cherries.

It was an afternoon tea fête fit for a queen!
