The guests have returned home, the kitchen put to rights and now I am pooped. Time for a soak in the tub and an early night. I used an old sheet that was my grandmothers as a table cloth and I think it was much sweeter than the fancy lace table cloth I had envisioned. The girls seemed to be impressed with the menu and didn't leave a lot behind. I was surprised though that they managed to fit in some birthday cake at the end of the day. I guess being a teenager improves the appetite and the metabolism too. Todays menu was : chocolate mousse, cookies and cream slice, white chocolate and macadamia slice, meringues, chocolate coated strawberries, sandwiches, mini meatballs and mini chicken satays. The birthday cake, a pink velvet cake as chosen by Grace. The funny thing about the high-tea, was the distinct lack of tea being consumed. All of the girls chose cold drinks and only my mother had tea.
