Photo Hunt: Pointed

‘Pointed’ cucumber sandwiches at a recent tea party with some close friends.

This was at a friend’s house. She did everything by hand herself. Except the wee cakes.

Here are some others:

hand-made table decorations

my name is really Andrea, I’ve been fooling you all, all along

aye, it was that good

cucumber, red pepper and olive thingies with cream cheese on rice cake hingers. basically.

I had a great time. There was even scones and clotted cream. I was in British heaven.

  8. Fine selection. Yummy. Although – I wonder – do people actually eat these cucumber sandwiches? I always thought it’s some elaborate British punishment (self-) for some ancient sins…

  15. Wow Siobhan. That’s some party for your self proclaimed “tumbleweed” town.

  16. How lovely it all looks. Was that a dish of spent lemon curd in the give-away photo with your name placard?

    I took my girlfriend to a High Tea last month which included a fund-raiser for the Make-A-Wish Foundation (for terminally ill children). We won the drawing to attend the next week’s Beethoven Gala by the London Symphony Orchestra in the new Segerstrom Concert Hall in Costa Mesa, California. We went, of course. It was an unexpected benefit to a wonderul High Tea afternoon.


  17. Wow, now I”m hungry, Looks like you had a grand time. Have a good weekend.

  18. Good heavens! That looks so yummy, and delicious πŸ™‚ Almost too pretty to eat….ALMOST πŸ˜‰

  19. Talent like that is simply… annoying. πŸ˜‰

  24. I take that stuff with the strawberries – yummie πŸ™‚

    I wish I could pull something like that off. I love tea sandwices. I can imagine you were in Brit heaven. It’s delicious.

  26. Perfect choice for the pointed theme! It all looks delicious!

  27. They all look so good! I admire your discipline in taking photos …. I would have been stuffing my face!!

    High tea isn’t such a common thing here in South Africa but believe it or not one of the most fantastic high teas I ever had was in Zimbabwe … you know the old colonial style (that was loooooong ago before all the crap that is happening there now).

  28. Thanks so much for the email! That was sweet…I just read blogs that I like and then comment on them when they make me laugh or smile or think…which can be scary!lol!

    That party looks so classy and fun!

    It’s funny but I have been planning a trip to London, England for 6 months and we go at the beginning of August…I am so excited and it will be my first time…

    So if there is a must Do or must SEE then let me know! Thanks again for emailing me…I LOVED it!

  29. Hi,
    I came over from AFF’s blog to apologize for calling tartan/plaid. I’m clueless. I love your #70 of 101 things too. Come visit me sometime. πŸ˜€

  30. I had lunch before visiting but am ready to eat, again! Yum

  31. You’ve got bling! (Check my comment box)

  32. Wow that’s quite a spread…and great pics too!

  33. Oh, thanks for the reply. I knew that you were kidding. It’s ok. But I don’t know the lingo. πŸ˜€

  34. Oh man. those look too fancy to eat. Maybe I would stand next to them and get my picture taken with them, but to chew it up? I just couldn’t.

  35. that looks so good,

    Gill from Canada
