We were spoilt for choice with the superb afternoon tea at The Masham this week.
In the first event of what will hopefully be many, a number of our ladies learned flower-arranging tricks of the trade from expert florist Sandra Rose, before being tempted with a range of goodies including salmon sandwiches, home-made scotch eggs, cream scones and fresh strawberry tarts, all washed down with a lovely cuppa.
Without giving too much away, Sandra showed us how to place the flowers so that they supported each other and taught us about combining flowers, prolonging their lives and even how to add a little sparkle to your blooms ! Even better, the two arrangements she produced were raffled off, making £75 for the Butterwick Hospice in the process.
We all had a fantastic afternoon, and what’s more, we have the opportunity to do it all again on 9 August. Tickets are available from The Masham now, but be quick, they’re selling like hot cakes !
