Was delicious.

Diy high tea – a lot of fun, but also a ton of work. My cousin (K) and I have been planning to do our own high tea for a while now. We finally set a date and were ready to go, but unfortunately, she got sick and wasn’t able to make it.

The plan was to crash our grandparent’s house and set up an elaborate display of homemade goodies with our three-tiered stands.

K and her mom made a variety of sandwiches, cheese scones, mini quiche, and mini cheesecakes.

Since they were already making sandwiches, mom and I brought all sweets – Cranberry orange scones (recipe), mini lemon tarts (Crust recipe & filling recipe), blueberry coffee cake (recipe), and nutella chocolate macarons (recipe).

It was a sugar-filled afternoon to say the least, but everything was really good.

Hoping to do another diy high tea date once K feels better!

  1. Wow, that looks great! I love going for tea, but I had never thought of making all the little treats from scratch. I’m sure it was a lot of work, but everything looks delicious!
