Tea + Sandwiches = Tealicious

My Tea Time for Tuesday Tea Parties is very simple, as i didn't make any cakes and hubby has finished up all the jaffa cakes and bakewells that we bought at Sainsburys, I had to resort to sandwiches, i made ham and egg mayonaisse sandwiches :)


I pretty them up with printable flags and stick them in toothpicks. I used round cookie cutters for the breads. Bon appetit!


I'm drinking Twinings a moment of calm African Rooibos, Strawberry and Vanilla tea bag that I was sent as a gift for me from my dear blogger friend Jem. Heavenly taste and very calming.


The teapot I bought at Bhs when they're having a sale for £5, it's handpainted, as for the teacup trio was bought in a charity shop for £2.50 from Colclough, I also found the little Marks and Spencer frame that I painted with chalkboard paint inside for £1. all were bought awhile back and most were bought in Charity shop :)


Have a Tealicious Time!

  3. Your pretty chalkboard is so lovely Susan and your Colclough trio is just utterly gorgeous, not to mention your yummy-looking sandwiches, I can never resist Egg Mayo!

    So glad you're enjoying the tea!! It's nice to be able to share things like that as my other half only likes standard tea or Chai :-)

  6. "Tealicious"...I love that word!!! Your sandwiches are so cute! When I was little in England we ate a lot of cucumber sandwiches but never with mayo, I don't think I even knew what mayo was. Always lots of butter though!

    Thank you for entering my giveaway Susan!

  11. Hello Susan,
    What a sweet little tea and your sandwiches look very cute with the little flags. Love the teapot and the tea cup trio. I miss the Marks and Spencer we used to have at a mall in NB. I used to shop there a lot when we lived over there. The little chalkboard is adorable! Thank you for sharing your pretty tea with Tea Time today and I wish you a delightful week.

    Blessings,
    Sandi
