Our first wedding fair!

Twas indeed a very exciting weekend at the Golden Afternoon Tea headquarters.
We took our cakes and teacups, tablecloths and teapots to our very first wedding exhibition organised by Best Brides and plyed our wares to the good people of Kent.
Our wagon of tea was fairly loaded down but off we trundled to the famous Brands Hatch race track and in a room high above the track, we set up our Golden Afternoon Tea Company stand, complete with a fabric covered screen cleverly knocked up by the chap- he has his uses!   It was oodles of fun.       
The chap took some polaroid pictures before the doors opened, here we are.. fresh
faced and ready to face the crowds. The Tea Maids- Lula and Lina at your service!

We filled the table with scones, cupcakes, a few cucumber sandwiches and a gorgeous heart shaped victoria sponge that drew lots of mouth watering attention. It was a great day and we loved chatting away about tea parties. We met some lovely brides and grooms, as well as mothers,fathers, sisters, friends and loved telling them how perfect our  afternoon tea catering  with vintage china and styling would be for their wedding, hen party or bridal shower. So many people said such sweet things about our stand, wonderful to receive such compliments..We came away tired but very happy!

(Isn't that napkin adorable?)

We were also giving away a free tea party for up to ten people and will be doing the draw very soon!
So if you were at the fair but didn't manage to give your details to us, please send us an email via our website with your name and we'll put you into the hat!

And when we got home, that victoria sponge was calling us- oooo it was scrum diddly- umptious..
The chap and I demolished a couple of huge slices with a strong mug of tea.. Nothing like eating cake after a hard day!!
And if you have found your way to our blog from the wedding fair, welcome!

Tea and love,
