Hens High Tea afternoon

Yesterday a group of us ladies dressed up – some more than others – and went off to Villa Howden for high tea for our friend’s hen do. It was all very classy with none of the tacky stuff that is normally seen at these functions.  The venue is a lovely old building that has been used for many different purposes over the years but currently, very French Provincial (I think) and the epitome of old class and elegance.

The food was as expected – beautiful little treats both sweet and savoury.  We had added into our cost the optional extra of a glass of bubbly, as befitted the ocassion. A very nice bubbly it was too.

We were also able to render our Hen speechless, complete with tears, on presenting her with her gift. That alone made it worthwhile.  Just a little something for her house, presented via photo on the phone, as two hubbies had installed it while we were out.
