Weekend Entertaining: How to Style Your Spread for an Afternoon Party
Milk and cookies, tea and scones, and coffee and cake-we show you how to style these perfect pairs for an afternoon soiree.
There’s no better way to celebrate lazy weekend afternoons than by feasting on cake, scones, or good ol’ chocolate chip cookies and pairing them with tea, milk, and coffee.
Milk and Cookies
Printed placemats, pastel-pretty plates and old-school milk bottles elevate this simple snack ensemble.
Cake and Coffee
Instead of serving cake slices on plates, why not use wooden boards? Serving freshly-brewed joe in your coffee press also makes for a great conversation starter.
Scones and Tea
Dainty plates and a bone china teapot provide the perfect backdrop to scones and tea. You can also mix it up when it comes to your scone recipe: use milk or dark chocolate, and swap out cranberries for raisins!
