English Tea Brunch

Sunday I was invited over to an English Tea brunch at my friends Lauren and Greg's new house.  So fun to be invited to a mini party.  Not that I don't have any friends, I do. But we always end up going out to eat or just getting pizza instead of them hosting. I'm the party thrower of the group.  So it was really fun to see one of my friends entertaining. 

Lauren served tea, tea sandwiches, scones she made herself and berries fresh from their new yard.  Lauren did a great job and she's excited to host more, YEAH!  I look forward to many more mini parties with them. 

I don't know which recipe Lauren used for her tea sandwiches so I'm giving you a link to several different types.  One she made was an egg salad, the other I remember had cucumbers, prosciutto and a cheese. They were very tasty.

This was the first time Lauren made scones and they turned out great.  Add a little of the jam Greg made and YUM!

 I made the dessert contribution. Any guesses?  You got it, CUPCAKES!  Cinnamon roll cupcakes from Make Bake Celebrate
Here's Make Bake Celebrate's cinnamon roll cupcakes:
And my cinnamon roll cupcakes. They're delish:

Lauren and Greg didn't do any decorations or set the table all fancy and they didn't need to. Not every get together needs to be done up to the nines.  A simple get together with friends is the best.
Thank you for the great English Tea Brunch Lauren and Greg and I look forward to many more. 

I hope you're inspired to host your own little brunch.
