Dream Tea with Edgcumbes
Dream Tea Partner Alice Rendle of Edgcumbes hosted the most fantastic Dream Tea in her garden in Arundel. It was the most quintessentially English afternoon and raised an incredible £2,200.
A couple of weeks ago I was invited to the most fantastic Dream Tea hosted by Dream Tea Partner Alice Rendle of Edgcumbes. Set in her walled garden in Arundel, the sun shone and the Raj tent stood proudly in the centre of the lawn. Lovely brightly coloured tables were all set up in the shade of the large trees and inside the marquee was the most spectacular table covered in divine cakes, sandwiches, homemade scones and tea delights. All of this was complimented by chilled prosecco...and of course lots of lovely tea! Croquet on the lawn, outdoor table tennis and a trampoline provided much amusement and pleasure for all to enjoy.
The weather was just perfect and a substantial raffle and lots of tea and coffee goodies were for sale. Miranda Gore Browne attended with her lovely children and with the most chocolatey cake ever which went in the raffle! It was a very grandiose dream tea but ticked every box - lots of family, friends, colleagues and business contacts all mixed happily, making the most of the lovely, quintessentially English afternoon. And not only that alltogether Edgcumbes managed to raise an amazing £2,200.
Much fun was had by all and before we knew it early evening came and, filled with the memory of delicious tea and cake, we all went home!
Roll on next year Alice!
