On the weekend about 15 of us went out for a morning tea in Sydney's iconic QVB building in the city to celebrate a birthday. There is a posh tearooms on the top floor and on Saturdays it is abuzz with grande dames having morning tea, shoppers having a break and some mothers/daughters - all with a sense of occaison and excitement over this very special treat.
Silver pots of tea were dispatched along with tiered trays piled high with tiny cakes and savories. Everything on rose patterned china and with flutes of champagne to accompany.
It has to be one of the loveliest ways to spend a cold Saturday.
