  1. Now that the sun is shining i would love to have an afternoon tea party - alice in wonderland style ! On the lawn, in the sun, with white tableclothes, cupcake stands, fine china teacups in gelati colours, beautiful teapots and all my girlfriends.
    my wishlist for the menu would be cupcakes (of course), ribbon sandwiches, strawberry tarts, macarons, lots of brightly coloured posies !

  2. Oh, these are lovely! I would love to win and host an afternoon tea in the garden under the trees to celebrate this beautiful Spring weather.

  3. Sweet! Boutique is simply gorgeous!!!
    My afternoon tea would be themed around the beautiful bright colours Juli has used in this range. Bright floral dresses, hats, bubbles and high tea in the garden under the plain tree with all my girlfriends...laughing and enjoying lifes small peasures.

  4. Cake stands, gorgeous plates and flags makes me think of a long, leisurely high tea with the girls - a nice pink bubble and plenty of laughs. I have a friend with a beach box which would make a great venue - so perhaps a beach inspired theme with shoes off, bright umbrellas, beach balls - and sunshine!

  5. Id gather all my girlfriends round
    All dressed up in their prettiest frock
    The table laid with vintage saucers and cups we had found
    And platters fit for a lady from Sweet Treats stock!!

    As banter fills the air, the earl grey would flow
    But silence falls as I proudly present the stars of the show

    Stacked high on my eco-platter proud as punch
    What a feast for our eyes this tasty lunch

    Fluffy cupcakes cocooned in their pretty cottage case
    Macarons, slices and crustless sandwiches to suit everyone's taste

    An afternoon filled with love and sweet treats
    And the pop of suprise bottle of bubbles they brought for me!
    So glad I arranged for us all to meet
    Now please, a peppermint tea for this full belly!

    The party host is Julie !

  6. I'd have a tea party with my little Nelle (who's 3) ... We'd make cupcakes together and she would 'hatch' the eggs into the bowl and stir in the flour and sugar and butter and chocolate. And we'd lick the spoon, even though we know it's a little naughty. And when the cupcakes were baking, we'd set up for our party with all the gifted goodies - on a blanket on the deck. We'd make tea. And then we'd have our little party, just us girls.

  7. I'd host a lazy afternoon tea all for me, lay a picnic rug out on the grass in the sun with a good book, having just baked a batch of my favourite totally indulgent brownies, arrange them beautifully on the gorgeous Sweet Boutique cake stand, pop a food flag in each piece and munch my way through... some secret selfish time, mmm heaven...

  8. Beautiful products is the perfect excuse to gather my closet girlfriends to get creative in the kitchen. We will make our own cupcakes, mararoons, tarts...and lets not forget strawberries dipped in chocolate!

    Dressed up in gorgeous 1950's themed dresses, we'd go and have a summer outdoors picnic in the garden to enjoy our creations and have a good laugh.

    Summer skies, flowers, butterflies and birds...everyone enjoying each others company with delicious desserts.

  9. These are so pretty! One of my mother's favourite memories is having high tea at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Bangkok so I would make here a wonderful afternoon tea so she could relive the expirience.

  10. Being an English gal, I would have a true Brittish style high tea, with my vintage lace table cloth, pretty cups & saucers (mis-matching for a touch of eccentricity!) and a vase of roses on the table.

    There would be pink champagne with strawberries and mint, my spotty tea-pot would be frequently replenished, and I would serve dainty sandwiches, and cupcakes on the fabulous Sweet! Treats platters & stands, with each cupcake being uniquely decorated.
    There would be lots of pretty little flags dotted amongst them and pretty bunting around the room (or garden if the weather is nice to us!!).

    Of course there would be many smiles & much laughter ♥

  11. Beautiful items. I would use the cake stand for scones and mini tarts, food flags to label them and cake plate for the piece de resistance. Love doing these at home.

  12. My wife likes all these types of things. I would do it for a day off because of all the childminding she does. The cake stand, food flags and cake plate would make it decorative and authentic experience.

  13. Congratulations #6, Amanda from Easy Peasy Organics! I hope you and Nelle enjoy your afternoon tea with your beautiful new treats from the Sweet! Cupcakes and Treats. I will email you to arrange delivery. xKim
