One of my friends decided she would like to go out for afternoon tea when it was her 40th birthday a couple of weeks ago. It was quite a shock ! Are our clubbing days long gone?? Still it was also a fab idea of hers as going out for tea and cake is one of my favourite things ever!
We decided to go to our local tearoom , the quirky Alice in Wonderland inspired ‘Callooh Callay’ on Moor Lane in Clitheroe. Jo gave Marian the traditional 40 balloon and we all got down to studying the yummy sounding menu.
Dainty and delicious sandwiches cut into triangles, scones with jam and clotted cream and a selection of scrumptious cupcakes arrived on three tiered cake stands. Yummy. : ) Everything was served in beautiful vintage crockery.
I think we all agreed that afternoon tea was indeed an inspired idea and the Birthday girl and all of us were very impressed.
