Life: Afternoon Tea at Flitwick Manor

My younger sister, Crystal and Mum visited last weekend, and as a special treat for my mum we decided to book Afternoon Tea at Flitwick Manor, not far from where I live. I had a birthday surprise from my two lovely friends Annie & Kristie ealier this month, and after telling mum all about I knew she'd love it. Luckily Amazon Local deals popped a 2-for-1 deal in my inbox so I snapped it up.
Flitwick Manor is a Georgian Country House tucked away in beautiful wooded parklands and gardens in Bedfordshire. The long drive lined with trees gives way to the gorgeous house and grounds. I've been to Flitwick Manor a few times before (mainly for work - it's perfect for weddings, so I've styled up a few nervous brides on their big day)
But onto the main event. Cake, and tea, and of course cute sandwiches. First up we were brought a chilled glass of bubbly, and a case containing lots of different varieties of Twinings tea to choose from, I went for Jasmine Pearl - check out the gorgeous teapot! And we certainly weren't disappointed with the variety of delights brought to us on stands. From sugary warm doughnuts to salmon sandwiches - crusts off of course, we left feeling very posh and very full. 
You can choose from a menu of different kinds of Afternoon Tea, at varying prices. 
A lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon. I felt like Lady Mary in Downton...
until I opened my gob.
