Online Afternoon Tea #bakeforbumps

Thank you, thank you, thank you. We did it. Somehow, through the kindness of the beautiful bloggers that I'm proud to call friends (and fellow social media addicts,) we hit our fundraising target and raised some fantastic awareness for a charity championing the health of babies. Life is good, and now much better for a few as-yet-unborn children.

All for the love of cake.


Sadly, there was a touch of rain on our parade (though luckily not our beautiful tablecloth!) as some friends were unable to make it. I thought perhaps instead I could spread an online blanket under the tree of the internet, and we could share the recipes - et voila, the DIY Blogger Afternoon Tea was born.

Follow LondonKiwiEmma's board Delicious feast recipes perfect for a DIY blogger Afternoon Tea on Pinterest.

As you'll be able to see, our afternoon tea contained all of the 3 major food groups; Savouries, Scones & Sweets, and much much more than even we chatterers could eat.


The tables in La Mancha's function room simply groaned with platters of delicious delectables.

And, perhaps most importantly a rather rustic Tea Bar.
 

I've already been fielding cries of "When's the next one?" so watch this space. Just give my waistband a chance to recover, promise?


Every one that came and also so kindly supported us, I've tried to blog stalk for lovely tea recipes, but I would adore any more recipes links in the comments below. Or Tweeted. Or cooked for me to try (I joke. Mostly).

Once again, thank you, thank you, thank you.
