It's the last #35at35list item that I'm going to be able to tick off this year :-)
I had planned to have a lavender-themed afternoon tea party in my new house as a civilised house warming party and had pinned a whole host of inspiring pictures here of lavender hot chocolate, lilac macarons and blueberry cupcakes...
Anyway, I ended up deciding that a festive afternoon tea would be much easier, and I went ahead and organised a child-friendly afternoon for a few friends.
We had cheese & crackers, puff pastry canapes, warm mulled wine from the slow cooker and mince pies with Baileys cream. Yum!
The cheese & pate
Kids hard at work cutting out pastry shapes for our goats cheese and onion chutney puffs!
The living room, complete with "roaring fire"!!
