Spring High Tea Party

This weekend my mother celebrated her birthday, a week earlier because of mothersday, and hosted a high tea for the occasion. Last year I got ill and wasn't able to help her with decorations and baking but this year it all came together perfectly.

Here's an impression

We served lots of green & yellow candy, scones, vanilla & chocolate cupcakes, apple cinnamon muffins, banana bread muffins, mini club sandwiches, salmon sandwiches, cucumber sandwiches, chocolate, cookies, strawberries, mini pigs in a blanket and quiches.

A few things went wrong with the scones (they were intentionally smaller but I had a hard time figuring out the baking time and since I was rushing I had to throw quite a few out)and the cupcake toppings (i forgot to bring my mixer along so i didn't think it tasted ok enough but the guests seemed to like it).
