AN AFTERNOON TEA PARTY

When have you last time invited over your friends for a cup of tea and some finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam and some good conversation? As I spied around the web, some of you might have done so to watch the royal wedding together, but for all of those who haven't, we've put together a little guide for a very British afternoon.


Here's what your little party could look like:
