My dear friend Christine and I spent yesterday afternoon at a gorgeous place for a girly gathering. Lots of delicious goodies to eat and lots of brilliant vintage loveliness to look at and to buy.
We enjoyed a serve of cheese and chutney scones , charmingly named Gilbert, and sweet Jane with jam and cream. Both were scrumptiously delicious.
They were served on lovely vintage china and we sipped our tea from 'proper' china teacups.
Here's our delightful hostess. I forgot to ask her name - she is lovely.
There is lots around to interest we needle workers
and I loved the doily bunting in both the cafe
and the caravan.
I think it is certainly worth a visit where ever you are in Melbourne but for lucky Christine and me it is only 10 minutes away. Probably best to book if you are travelling a bit of a distance as it is a really popular place.
Here are the opening hours etc of Jam and Cream at Urban Spoon. It's located at Shop 3/1 Orr Street Heidelberg Heights. I don't think there is a blog - but here is their Facebook page.
I think Christine's birthday - because it is a BIG one- should be celebrated in the pink caravan at this slice of girly heaven.
Following along with the foodie flavour of this blog post here is a recipe for
Marshmallow FondantI haven't tried this myself but if it works it will be brilliant. I'm going to give it a try this week. The possibilities are endless and it sounds like such fun.
