Cherry Blossom Tea Time

We started with warmed Cherry Scones
With Deavonshire Cream (also called Clotted Cream)
I used this tatted tablecloth (saved from life at the great big thrift store) to ground the centerpieces this time,  I love it with the cream colored dishes.  Can you imagine someone donating a year of work??
English Cucumber Sandwiches with a sprinkle of salt. 
Cream and sugar in my vintage cherry blossom set with a Korean serving spoon.
A little cherry pick in the jam jar.
Oh, and there were two decadent desserts but we ate them and I didn't stop to take pictures!  
And they brought me fun presents!  Specialty teas (Spearmint and Mango), English Tea Biscuits, Toffee Almonds, and Cherry note paper, makeup bag and my favorite:  cherry buttons in a cherry box!  Oh and not in this picture:  the pink hat with felt flowers encircling it (group photo) and another hat for my collection!   We chatted, drank five pots of tea and it was over, like Christmas, before I wanted it to end.  Now I think I'll put those English Biscuits where they belong because tomorrow I might have room  for one!
