Strawberries and cream

Strawberries and cream. Three words that scream summer and two items that fly off the shelves, especially when Wimbledon is on. This perfect pairing gave me the excuse to throw a Strawberries and Cream party for the Wimbledon Men’s Final. And of course, we had strawberries. Some were dipped in chocolate, others sat proudly on top of a pavlova and a few floated happily in a jug of Pimms. Everything was red or white, and there was the odd hint of pink. We had a great day, and it was made all the better by Andy Murray lifting the trophy.

    Beautiful! I wish I’d had the presence of mind to bake a Wimbledon cake, or do something foodie to celebrate. As it was I just ended up watching it on TV and getting far too tense.

      Thanks Charlotte! I know what you mean about tense … thankfully the food proved to be a welcome distraction!
