Festive Afternoon Tea

One thing Christmas is very good for and that is eating. Christmas hasn't even begun yet and I feel stuffed full of delicious food already. As you saw last Thursday I went for dinner at Hotel du Vin, Saturday I met a friend for lunch at Cafe 21, Sunday was this Festive Afternoon Tea at Jesmond Dene House that I am sharing with you now and Monday was my work lunch at Zizzi.

  2. I know what you mean, so many sweets around! Love the photographs. How do you get that kind of shot? Like a special camera or setting or editing technique? I've always wondered.

  3. I too enjoy eating, and not just on holidays. It's something how I manage to EAT loads of fries & chicken tenders, and still maintain a "nice shape" without moderation. :::smiles::: I suppose :)

    Danity photography and oh that gingerbread house ;o) Last time I made a gingerbread, didn't go well....as I created it, I ate it.
