Mrs Bean and myself (with the help of a zippy little sidekick) put on a high tea for an old and dear friend - just to show a bit of love. With the help of her husband, we managed to keep it a surprise until she turned up on the day! and here's what it looked like...all the crockery, linens, cutlery, stands and other paraphernalia we own ourselves, and use for high teas. We've built up quite a collection, and it showed off everything perfectly. What a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
