Oh good, I'm glad I was worried the postal strike might have left it lost in the ether!

And I expect to be able to see my reflection in the tea service are you will all be disqualified <evil scientist laugh>

Slubberdegullion Tue 26-Jun-07 13:32:55

tbh I don't have any dainty cups & saucers...I feel a trip to my mothers is in order.

Slubberdegullion Tue 26-Jun-07 13:31:14

9pm is fine.

<buffs milk jugs>

SlightlyMadShorthair Tue 26-Jun-07 13:25:36

I'll judge as I won't be joining afternoon tea - I know I can't beat LLs posh teaset

CAn we have a closing time of 9pm Sunday though or you will be waiting until late on Monday for a verdict....

Also could I have some judging criteria, as we did for cupcakes.

littlelapin Tue 26-Jun-07 13:21:36

Oh I want to do afternoon tea! <withdraws offer to judge>

--sorry for hijack ----

psst - Peachy ,,, I need a word -see thread in your name ...

Peachy Tue 26-Jun-07 13:17:59

Ah se I have good imitation plates LOL- (amazing what you can get in millets Sales )

littleducks Tue 26-Jun-07 13:14:42

£5 sounds fine, it should be approx as we all have different things in larder.

Peachy- the picnic one will seperate the Anthea fans from the rest, china plates for a picnic? pretty but impractical

Peachy Tue 26-Jun-07 13:09:38

That sounds a good one- maybe next time apicnic hamper would be appropriate LOL

littleducks Tue 26-Jun-07 13:07:06

Shall we set a deadline?

Slubberdegullion Tue 26-Jun-07 13:06:16

How much?

I suppose we will be feeding our families with our efforts (I'm liking the idea of a MN 'High Tea' on sunday...all over the country families will be sitting down at 4pm with napkins, mini sandwiches with crusts cut off and delicate scones).

Whats the budget for feeding a family high tea then?

£5? I'm assuming people already have flour/butter/eggs/jam etc in their larders

Slubberdegullion Tue 26-Jun-07 12:59:43


can I still use my lovely little silver spoons inherited from grandmother and never been out of velvet linedbox yet?

littleducks Tue 26-Jun-07 12:52:54

I do think that the afternoon tea for one should have a budget or spending limit to try and make it fairer and easier to judge
