Villa High Tea Part 2

The tables were set for our " Villa Tea " lunch with simple vintage elegance.  (The tablecloths were divine!)

It was a whimsical Tuscan escape taken in the middle of our day to   " Cathy Rumcake's ".

It was clear much thought (and good taste) went into decorating and personalizing each tea table.

Being a lover of vintage teacups, I immediately was drawn to display of teacups on each beautiful table.

Above you can see our delicious lunch which consisted of  a ribbon sandwich, strawberries & cream,  and Cathy's own homemade scone.

There were also delectable jams and a lemon curd in adorable little jam pots for the scone.

And best of all was desert.   Yes, Cathy's classic strawberry rum cake.  The same exact flavor I had at my wedding and on my parents 40th Wedding Anniversary.

In my last post on this topic I will show you pictures of Cathy's display of "Rumderful" Cakes.

So stay tuned . . .

Have a terrific Friday!

What a beautiful place and the food looks so good. That strawberry rum cake just put about five pounds on me. Sounds like such a wonderful time.
