Breast Cancer Care Strawberry Tea

Yesterday I hosted a summer garden party for Breast Cancer Care.  I was so worried about the weather but it turned out to be the loveliest sunny day, quite unlike today or the previous day; we were so lucky.  The lawn was even dry enough in the morning for me to mow it.

Sixteen ladies came along and we had sparkling Rose wine (do you like my rose bud ice cubes?)

and Cornish cream tea.

We played a few games including a 'Human Fruit Machine' and a good time was had by all along with a sizable amount of money to send to this worthwhile charity.  Unfortunately I was so busy filling up people's glasses and stuffing myself with scones that I forgot to take any photos when everyone was here but here are the few I did take.

Everyone was asked to wear red or pink


  1. Oh my goodness what an amazing garden clever with the ice...I want to come next time!

  2. What a fantastic tea party and you were so lucky with the weather, it was gorgeous here yesterday. Your garden looks stunning and I love the rosebud ice cubes. We have torrential rain here in Derbyshire and flood alerts! Have a great weekend.
