Alice in Wonderland Afternoon Tea

I'm SO excited to announce that the lovely Victoria of Victoria's Cake Boutique and I are hosting our first afternoon tea pop up in Putney...this weekend! I hope we've not left it too late to tempt you over?
Sneak preview...

Allow yourself to fall down the rabbit hole into the Mad Hatter’s tea party. You will eat your way through a colourful feast of sweet and savoury bakes, inspired by the magical world of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. With stunning views of the river you can sip on a glass of bubbles while indulging in such delights as the Queen of Heart’s jam tarts, caterpillars on toadstools and The White Rabbit's pocket watch. There will be enough free-flowing tea and cake to ensure you leave our doors grinning like a Cheshire Cat. Book your places now, or risk being late for a very important date!

Menu

Savoury
A selection of finger sandwiches:
Organic egg and cress / Ham, baby leaf and mustard/ Cucumber, cream cheese and mint/ Smoked salmon, cream cheese and dill

Victoria and Milli xx

There are 4 sittings, please state which you would like to come to.

Sunday 10th November 12-2pm or 4-6pm 
 
Victoria and I went to Harrods for afternoon tea to do a bit of 'research' I arranged it through buyagift which is quick and easy and because you pay up before you go, there is none of the awkwardness of  who pays the bill if it's your treat. My favourite part of the tea is the sandwiches (as always) but that chocolate, praline fancy thing at the top there? .. to die for.
