/ food / afternoon tea lust

If you are anything like me, there's nothing you like more than to spend the afternoon working your way through an afternoon tea spread. Seriously. Sandwiches, cakes, and scones are definitely the definition of good food.

Whilst flying (if you've read my old posts, you'll know it happens more often than not) I read an article about an afternoon tea hamper company The English Cream Tea Company, who pretty much provide the service I never knew I needed in my life...

Luxury hamper for four, £99 - I'd eat it all if I could

However, these hampers, or any such afternoon tea service does come with a painful price tag. Being a student, I cannot afford that, so am going to be setting myself a challenge - to produce a similar hamper to the one above, but at a far more reasonable price!

To do:
- Jam
- Scones (plain and fruit)
- Traditional sandwiches (cucumber and cream cheese, salmon and lemon, egg mayonnaise and cress, cheddar and onion relish
- Provide an assortment of cakes, meringues and biscuits
- Lemonade (will be researching this soon!)

Alongside these goodies,  I need to source clotted cream and an assortment of decorations.

Well then, I'd better get started!
