Cakestand* from dotcomgiftshop / Teacup from Kirsty Allsop for M&S / Food purchased from M&S and Sainsbury's!

At the start of June, during Jubilee weekend, we had a quick lunch in the sunshine (as shown here) and that was when I was hopeful that we would get a nice Summer with hot weather. I was excited for countless of barbeques, tea breaks in the garden and pub lunches in beer gardens. How wrong was I! I feel like I am constantly talking about the weather in real life and on my blog! Anyway, so, it rained throughout July, and August doesn't look too bright either! I took advantage of the sunny weather last week to sit in the garden for cake, tea and chitchat! The lovely team at dotcomgiftshop sent me this three-tier cake stand from the Regency range and when it arrived, I was so eager to put it together straight away and start filling it up with yummy stuff! I posted an instagram of it and got lots of tweets from those who wanted to know where I got it from. I am happy to recommend dotcomgiftshop because I feel like many of you all share my love for quirky and unique homeware! I don't have my own house (yet) but I can't wait to fill it up with lots of things from dotcomgiftshop! My favourite section are the kitchen products!

When I finished assembling the cake stand, my mum and I both said, in unison, "ooh, I've always wanted one of these!" - I am so happy to finally have one and I've been using it at every opportunity! I've hardly put on a traditional "high tea", I just put out what ever I had in the house and luckily, we'd been shopping the day before otherwise it would've just been strawberries and crisps, and possibly cream crackers! The stand makes anything look attractive, even dry cream crackers! It's really pretty and the plates are all different in shape, size and colour. The bottom one is square, the middle one is scalloped-edged and the top tier is round. For biscuit lovers, check out this stand, HOW AMAZING IS IT!!!

    I keep wanting to get myself a pair of disco pants, but don't think that they'd be long enough as I have a 35 inch inside leg!

  12. Oh we always buy those m&s jam and cream sandwich biscuits - best with a nice cuppa! You're right, anything displayed on those instantly makes them more attractive!

    Also our bird blouse looks a real treat, suits you very well indeed.

  20. love the afternoon tea set. I've only had it once at Harvey Nichols for my 21st, I know it's only sandwiches, cake and tea but there's something so decadent and elegant about high tea!

  22. in reply to your comment from my blog, yes I have heard of them!! So is that what you use? I may have to give them a go, yeah usually i have double eye lid (dan an pay, haha, cantonese) and then sometimes they'd turn into triple if I'm tired hahaha! Chinese eyes are so annoying. Where do you get them from? xx

  25. Yum, this all looks delicious! The stand is so pretty. I always enjoy going out for afternoon tea, and I actually think the little stands and the presentation of it all play a huge part in the experience.
