This week it will be a year to the day that I hosted my first afternoon tea event at my underground tea room, Cafe Nouveau at Home.
Over the year I have held 10 different themed afternoon tea events (I took a break in April and August) including a French inspired, a cake and wine matching and a cheese one.
All in all I think they have been a success. Everyone seems to have enjoyed the food and experience and I’ve had quite a few repeat bookings as well as orders for cakes, cupcakes and even an afternoon tea style wedding breakfast.
On a personal note I’ve met some fantastic and very interesting people and I’ve had an opportunity to try new recipes out. So I’d like to thank everyone who has visited Cafe Nouveau in 2011, as without you it would not work!
I’m looking forward to seeing what 2012 will bring and meeting lots more lovely people.
