Styling a Summer Afternoon Tea

by David & Mark|Mar 29, 2022

We all know those blissful moments in life. Those little indulgences make your heart skip a little with excitement. For us, it’s a new series on Netflix, bottomless brunch, the arrival of an ASOS delivery, and its afternoon tea.

Let’s talk about afternoon tea for a minute. Teeny tiny bite-sized portions towered high. An array of colorful treats alongside the tastiest sandwiches. Scones with jam and clotted cream. Endless prosecco and tea. What’s not to love? And we never fight over what comes first – the jam or the cream.

For us, it’s all about making your afternoon tea unique to you and what better for a summer garden soiree than the Westerly collection from Portmeirion. We’re all about jazzing up your dining table when the sun makes an appearance.

Ideal for the summer months, the Westerly collection with its sky blues and sunshine yellow tones, is bound to brighten up the dining table. The leaf and floral motifs are the perfect pairings for an outdoor tea party. However, it’s the cool retro vibe that Westerly offers that we loved. Starting from £9.50, the collection is fun and dynamic. Whether you mix and match the ceramics or keep them to one color, the range is playful yet sophisticated.

From Spode and Sara Miller to Royal Worcester and Pimpernel, there’s a dining set to suit many styles. Here are a few that may tickle your taste buds…

For us though, it’s Westerly all the way. Grab the macarons and spruce the table up with some wildflowers, it’s tea time!
