Ds2 is 1 at the weekend and we have some American relatives visiting. When they rang the other day they said they would love a proper English afternoon tea. I said I would do it for ds2 birthday party.
I have no idea what a proper English afternoon tea is? Please enlighten me

Thank you. That sounds quite easy.

I would do maybe a victoria sponge cake with jam and cream(birthday cake?) too and some other types of sandwiches.

don't forget the cups (rather than mugs) with saucers and tea spoons & a nice table cloth
