An afternoon of tea and tennis for Wimbledon Finals Day

What calls for strawberries and afternoon tea more than Wimbledon Finals Day? As I wasn't able to be at Centre Court myself, I decided to throw a party and watch the match with friends at home instead.

I spent some time deciding on the right food to serve, something quick, which involved little on hand prep from me so that I wouldn't miss a crucial point, something that could also be picked up quickly during change of ends or set breaks and most importantly it had to include lots of strawberries.

I settled on quiche which I put in the oven during the pre-match, cold cucumber-covered salmon, potato salad, homemade tomato & basil salsa and various other dips & salads - and that's just the savoury.

For sweet I served a strawberry & fresh cream filled Victoria sponge, blueberry, strawberry and red & yellow raspberry Eton Mess. K had made some red velvet cupcakes and L brought along the yellow raspberries which were added into the Mess.

Drinks were Pimms (of course), good old Yorkshire tea to round off the sweet and cava to toast the eventual winner. Well done Djokovic!
