Mother's Day Afternoon Tea.

Today we celebrated Mother's Day with all of our family. We held a very special afternoon tea at our home. I couldn't resist the opportunity to put together a dessert table!

The printable set I purchased from an Etsy store, totfulmemories, the colour theme was a pale pink, yellow, green and latte, with butterflies.

The table consisted of scones with jam and cream, vanilla and chocolate cupcakes, apple and cream tarts, tim tam cookie pops, chocolate bars wrapped in pretty paper, jelly cakes and strawberry, lemon and toffee bon bons.

This is the first time I have made cookie pops, I usually make cake pops, but after reading about them and seeing the recipe over at Mrs A in the Cove, I thought I would try them. They were a hit, really easy to make and tasted fabulous.

 The gorgeous flowers consisted of pale pink mini roses and carnations and fitted the theme perfectly. I purchased these from my local florist, The Lollipop Junction, along with the bon bons.

The square ribbon cake stand is from Tracey Lau, the tablecloth is from Leanne - Sweet Style, the square cake stands are from Sharnel Dollar Designs.

The afternoon tea was enjoyed with Lady Grey tea and Espresso Coffee, whilst the children had creaming soda and lemonade.

I couldn't have asked for a better Mother's Day, surrounded by the ones I love.

Happy Mother's Day to all of my readers.
