(yes that is a tea service in front of the fireplace!)
But on to the main tea event. I visited Rippon Lodge for a Jane Austen Tea party!
(isn't this a cool idea for a centerpiece?)
This was a couple of years ago, so I don't remember what all of the food served included, but I do remember it was delicious!
One sandwich in particular I do remember and have served since because it was so good. An orange muffin with orange marmalade and ham and a mild cheese (I've used Havarti). It is different, and yet very good!
While we were enjoying all the delicious food, we also played a Jane Austen trivia game, which would also be loads of fun at a Jane Austen themed book club tea or a Jane Austen movie tea! Speaking of movies based on her books, my sister and I watched a movie marathon before going to the tea so that we would be ready for the trivia.
(from the internet--best version ever!)
