~Emily's Tea Party No. 2!~

Emily and her family are now rather good at hosting Vintage Tea Parties in their lovely Yorkshire garden. The last event was for Emily's birthday, but last Sunday's event was in the name of fundraising for the charity Mankind Initiative. Brave Em is also running the 13.1 miles of the Great North Run in September to raise even more money for them. Thanks to Chris Sandiford, the official event photographer for the images he kindly sent me.
Gorgeous cupcakes, vintage china, endless cups of tea... and cake...
Sunny weather, good company, and a raffle with fantastic prizes.  The new summer house was the venue for a book sale.

I had a quiet 5 minutes sit down in here with a gardening magazine and was very envious!

Thanks to Taylors, Walkers and Tetley for supporting Emily, and also her Newcastle friends at Beckleberry's, who always send a delicious cake in support. I am still dreaming about that Marbled Chocolate Truffle Cake!

  1. That looks like a lovely way to spend the afternoon, and well done to Emily for fundraising. The summerhouse looks great - we had one at the old house but left it there when we moved. It was the perfect place to escape with a cuppa and a good book.
