Easter Tea - and a day out.

Easter Sunday is the one day of the year we have a 'proper' tea [like the ones I had as a child]......with sandwiches......and scones......and fruitbread.....and cakes of all descriptions.....many of them decorated with mini eggs,of course.
All the family partake......this year 15 of us......but I decided a layout with the food taking centre stage might be nice to make for posterity......so put together a collage in Picasa.
That spotty paper has been in my stash FOREVER......how nice to finally use it......or some of it at least.
Tomorrow [Saturday] I'm off to London with a group of 'crafty' friends.....to the Creative Stitches and Hobbycrafts Exhibition at Excel.......a new venue for this exhibition....it's never been in London before......and as I've been a bit creatively uninspired recently......I'm hoping for some inspiration....as well as a fun day out.
Anyone else going??

What a lovely display of Easter food, good enough to eat!
I'm not going to Excel this time as I am at Ally Pally in 2 weeks and spent a fortune recently at a stamp show in Herts.
Hope you have a good day out.

Everything about your tea looks delicious. Have fun at your craft event and maybe you'll come back with some ideas for all of us. I know I've lost my scrapping mojo and would like to give it a kick start.

That food looks amazing! And your layout showcases it perfectly! Have fun at the craft exhibition. I haven't been to one in several years, but I could use the inspiration as well.
