What do you wear to a hen do? I've been to a couple, mostly years ago, and these days a hen do can consist of drinking aaaall of the cocktails, or go karting, or crafting, or a European adventure, or, as was the case for the one I attended recently, afternoon tea!

What could be better for afternoon tea than a cute pin up dress? I absolutely adore the print on this dress, it's like an explosion of blossom. It always gets complimented, it is really comfy, and it fits so well. The fabric is really light which is always a good thing! I twisted my hair over to one side and used my hair to hide the back of the bun crown so it looked like a slide. I felt so girly and cute.
We went to The Comfy Duck at The Oaklands. It was a very reasonable £15 a head which included a glass of prosecco (which I donated to my Mum as I don't drink).
The food was served in these adorable wooden trays, we had sandwiches, plum bread, huge blocks of amazing mature cheddar, and scones with clotted cream and different jams. I usually find clotted cream too thick and sweet, but this was so light and delicious.
I'm not a fan of plum bread, but the cheese. Oh the cheese. I love cheese, and this was lovely tangy mature cheddar, in incredibly thick and generous slices.
As I am vegetarian, rather than eat from the box of sandwiches, I was given my own chopping board with cheese sandwiches with watercress in a mix of brown and white bread. They were so fresh and yummy. The other sandwiches including prawn, ham and mustard, chicken and more. My Mum loved them! She's not much of a bread person, but she ate about 10 slices quite happily which says it all!
It was a lovely day, I love the chance to get dressed up and celebrate with a friend, and with yummy food thrown in it was such a treat! I'd never eaten at The Comfy Duck before but I will certainly look at going back.
