Summer Delights 4: garden parties

Well, with the wind blowing outside the house today this pretty cake stand by Old Foley wouldn't be standing for long had the planned outside afternoon tea gone ahead. But had the sun been shining, rather than the leaves falling off the trees in a nod to an impending autumn, this sunny cake stand would have been the perfect platter for serving mini scones topped with cream and fresh strawberries. However, even though the rain lashed outside, this stand brought a little sunshine inside and a bit of hope that September will bring with it an Indian summer. We envisage this cakestand as the centre piece to a beautiful vintage wedding afternoon tea  but can equally imagine it bringing a bit of decadence to everyday jam pieces and tunnocks caramel wafers to brighten up any afternoon tea. Available in our shop now...
