Valentines Day Afternoon Tea

 For Valentines day, we had a quiet little afternoon tea~

On the menu:

Egg and Alfalfa
Quince, Apple and Brie
Roasted Capsicum, Sweet Potato and Parmesan

Earl Grey Tea Macarons
Lemon Myrtle and Raspberry Jelly
Jelly Cakes

Sparkling Peach Iced Tea

It was quite warm, so we dressed up only a little- mostly with comfort in mind. We made everything ourselves- and specifically I made the macarons for Thali. Keeping her favourite tea and doughnut in mind, our little macarons had rose flavoured shells with earl grey white chocolate ganache and a little touch of lemon myrtle jelly. I need to revise the jelly (it was a bit soft, but still delicious) but after that, I'll gift Thali the recipe for her blog

I got to use my Cheeky Rose tea cup and cake plate for the first time, aren't they cute~?

I hope you all had a happy and lovely weekend ♥


  1. Everything looks so beautiful! You guys could do catering on the side! Those macarons look far better than most that I've had (including laduree!) and I bet they taste just as good as they look. The combinations of the savouries are really ingenious, very different from the usual things I see at high teas or cafes, I particularly like the sound of the Roasted Capsicum, Sweet Potato and Parmesan :D

    1. Aww thank you! We tried making miniature version of things we'd been eating out and about, they turned out well I think, and were a welcome balance to the sweets- for the first time too we were actually able to eat most everything without feeling like bursting XD

  2. Oh, everything looks so cute! And I love the plates ♥
