I went for afternoon tea as part of my birthday celebrations this year, even though it was a few days to go until my actual birthday (I do like to stretch them out!) I wanted to spend some time with all my favourite ladies, with two of my other favourite things: tea and cake. So, afternoon tea seemed a winner!
We went to Broomhill Vintage Cottage Tearooms within the estate of Antony House. It’s only been open just over a year but is such a favourite amongst locals and tourists. It’s a beautiful old cottage, converted into a tea room with the pretty garden. There’s pastel bunting, fairy lights, wooden tables and chairs and plenty of dog bowls with water (we’ve gone several times with Lola, she loves it).
We had a table made up with pretty lace tablecloths and delicate china crockery. There was tea on tap from dainty teapots and then the most glorious selection of cakes and sandwiches on 3 tier stands. Some of my friends brought their children and they enjoyed playing on the grass or with the toys put out for them. Luckily, the weather was absolutely glorious and we spent a few hours just chatting and eating. It was the most perfect afternoon.
I think it’s also worth a shout out to Popsy clothing, where I bought the jumpsuit I wore. It had the most lovely strawberry print and was the comfiest thing to wear, especially as I was consuming my body weight in cake and bread.

Here’s some pictures from our afternoon:
