Scone! Vintage Style Tea Party.

  • Mar 9, 2014 · 2:00 PM

Do you love to drink tea from a bone china cup and eat cake? Are you looking for an excuse to bake a cake? My idea is to hold a sunday afternoon tea party at my house and for the guests to provide home baked goods such as cakes, scones, cheese straws and sandwiches to share. I will provide all crockery, tea, coffee and soft drinks. This will have to be limited to 8 people to start with due to space. If this proves to be popular it could become a regular event. I live in Bristol BS5, full address will be given to guests nearer the event time.

    So sorry, I seem to have come down with the nasty cold that's going around work. I'm going to have to give it a miss tomorrow, don't want to infect everyone. Hope it goes well. Cathie

      Hi Cathie. Sorry to hear you are unwell, I will miss the coconut brownies! I hope you are soon better and can come along to the next tea party.

    Hello all RSVP's!

    Further to the problems with the meetup site, I am hoping you have received my email with the location details and my mobile number? If you havent received it, let me know here so that I can try to send the email again. I am receiving very few emails from meetup myself so I am guessing others are having the same problem?

      Hi Jo

      Whoops! Just wanted to say I received your email and will be bringing coconut brownies with me.

      March 4, 2014

  • Annette T.

    Hello thanks for adding to the list. Are we still needing a venue? I will be happy to host although my house is small so it will be quite cosy! Let me know what you think. I live in Frenchay.

  • Rob E

    Sorry - think I must have put myself down for this one in error so please promote someone else. Enjoy!

  • Rona k.

    Hi Jo, I'm going to change my RSVP to no. Only because I came last time and it seems unfair of me to come again when there are some many who wish to go. If things change and you need someone to help eat the cake lol, I'm only down the road, so give me a text. Hope it goes well and you can find a bigger place to hold it, so more people can go at the same time. Take care Rona.

    Just realised how little I will be able to share too as, like Sheree, I'm gluten free, so although excited about cakes, have to drop out! Someone on the wait list will be happy!

    February 10, 2014

  • Jo A.

    Hi Sheree.
    I am sure we can work something out food wise if you would like to come along next time I post a Scone event.

    • Sheree R.

      Thank you Jo very sweet of you. BTW I'm a good baker! However not had much success with GF scones. Need to work on them ;)

      January 21, 2014

  • Sheree R.

    Ah what a beautiful idea. Love cake but unfortunately I'm gluten free. I do make my own cakes however I couldn't reciprocate & that's all part of the fun. Enjoy your afternoon

    I make a gorgeous coffee cake and yes u am blowing my own trumpet!! X

  • Phil C.

    I'm sorely tempted, though I'm nervous that my flapjacks or Delia Smith boil and bake cake may not stand up to the close scutiny to which they would be subjected. There may also be transportation issues as my bicycle doesn't have a wicker basket on the front. I'll add myself to the wait list just in case my baking turns out well enough to escape ridicule. ;-)

      Hi Phil.

      Come...eat cake, drink tea and be Merry...

      January 19, 2014

  • Cathie

    Sounds like my kind of event! Just to decide what to make...

    January 18, 2014

  • Jo A.

    Nicole made a good suggestion to me, having different hosts! Seems good to me! Everyone will need to visit their local charity shops for china ware! I can lent things if needs be. Also, how about pink champagne or similar for those not driving?

    Hi MervYn.

    You could make dainty cucumber or egg and cress sandwiches with the crust cut off? With real butter of course!

    1 · January 18, 2014

  • MervYn A.

    Much as this is an appealing event,I guess I'd better not signal a 'Yes', since I cannot cook or Bake and I'm sure that Cake Shop substitutes wouldn't fool anyone!!

  • Jo A.

    LIMITED TO 8 PEOPLE ONLY PLEASE. I am still trying to find the edit facility so that I can put on a limited numbers thingy!
