It’s Mothers Day, and what better way to spend it than going to work and not getting chance to see my Mum. Ho hum, such is life! The Co-Operative Food have been pretty amazing this week and have sent me a huge hamper for The Mother of All Tea Parties so I think it’s only fair that I treat my Mum to a good old afternoon tea this weekend, before I have to work.
Inside my wonderful, and totally unexpected, hamper from The Co-Operative was everything I needed to start off the Mother of All Tea Parties. From a cake stand, to boxes of tea, prosecco and of course a cake, I couldn’t have been more delighted with the contents. Now of course I had to go about creating my own tea party whilst joining in the Twitter chat #TwitterTeaParty. With so many people joining in and giving their hints and tips on throwing the ultimate in tea parties, I sat back and relaxed with an Earl Grey in my vintage rose cup and saucer whilst picking up some handy hints for future parties.
The Co-Operative Food is one place where I am always nipping into to pick up groceries and such like. The Fairtrade Earl Grey is one of my favourites and since going dairy free, I’ve found that I’m going through tons of tea bags due to its delicious bergamot blend. I’ve also been drinking large amounts of The Co-Ops own Prosecco – how naughty. The bottle is just £6.99 and it’s such a palatable drink. Not too dry, yet not overly sweet, and it goes down an absolute treat. It’s definitely worth trying, if you haven’t already.
No tea party is complete without a cake and there are some fab cakes in The Co-Op lately. I was kindly sent a Red Velvet which looks and smells amazing, however once I’d taken photos of it, it was given to my neighbour. She did confirm that it was delicious and I’m waiting for the day that I can buy a dairy free cake off the shelf.
So, I just want to take this time to wish all the Mothers out there a wonderful day with special love to my Mommy, Debs. Happy Mothers Day xxx
