cake crumbs & beach sand »

I’ve been watching this cake crumbs & beach sand community grow over the past few months and I’m humbled by the gorgeous vibe both here and on Facebook. For those that have been popping in for some time, you will know the voice of this space changed from a blog-about-whatever with some food thrown in to more of a food and lifestyle blog with a photography focus. When I clicked ‘publish’ on that first blog post two years ago, I still wasn’t entirely sure exactly what I would be blogging about. But now I have found my blogging feet, and it feels like home. Along with the food and photography and all things wonderful I happen to see in my travels, you as a reader play a big part in that.

So to say a huge thank you to my readers and to get to know some of you better, I have decided I want to have high tea with you! All of you of course, but that won’t be geographically (or financially) possible. So for now, I am inviting 4 people to join me for afternoon tea at the extravagant Terrace Hotel in Perth. 

If you are partial to cucumber sandwiches, deliciously fresh scones and tea, and would love to mingle with some likeminded people for an afternoon, dust off your favourite spring frock and enter your chance to win a spot.

1. Contest is open to subscribers of cake crumbs & beach sand only. To subscribe head here or follow us on Bloglovin’ here.

2. Comment below answering this question:

If you could have high tea with absolutely anyone, living or otherwise, who would you choose and why?
(I’d choose Pharrell Williams, have you heard that guy speak about 
I Am Other? Genius!)

3.  It’d also be seriously cool if you are a friend on cake crumbs & beach sand’s Facebook page. If not, head over and join our wonderful community.

So that’s it:

  • Rhonda Easton - I’d choose Megan from Littlesweet, firstly because she makes the most amazing tasting cakes in the whole world and secondly because it would give her a break for an afternoon xReplyCancel

  • Wendy Jones - Wow only one person out of all of the fabulous beings that have been or are still on this wonderful planet. I know that many people would probably say this person and it may not be originally but I have to say “Lady Di”. A true inspiration and a kind, bright, caring soul. It would be nice to share the joy of her new grandson with her and to tell her what a truly amazing job she did with her 2 sons that have grown into equally amazing young men.ReplyCancel

  • Sonia Life Love Hiccups - Oh What I would do to live in Perth on that date! One day we shall meet hun and I am going to squeeze the bejeezus out of you xxReplyCancel

  • Lisa - What an exciting competition! Umm, my favourite high tea guest would be Dr Fiona Stanley. I met her briefly at a business function. She is very passionate about helping others, raising research awareness to cure childhood diseases and has had a very interesting life. I would love to get to know more about her over a cuppa & high tea xReplyCancel

  • Melanie - I would have liked to take my recently departed Nana. She was the queen of thrift and to have been able to take her out for a High Tea, the epitome of lusciousness, would have been a delightful experience.ReplyCancel

  • Megan - Anyone? Ooh – tough call. Wouldn’t mind sharing a cupcake with Dr. Patrick I have to say : )ReplyCancel

  • Carly Little - My Mum, because she is my mum!ReplyCancel

  • Lady Susan - If I could have high tea with absolutely anyone, I would love to while away the afternoon with the effervencent Adam Hills. I think he would make conversation flow easily and would be a scream!ReplyCancel

  • Sash Inked in Colour - Pick me! Pick me! High tea with one? I’d probably have to choose Toni Collette… or Mother Theresa… Or the magnificent Brene Brown. And Ben Gibbard could play live music for us. Ohhhh.. one is too hard. Let’s have a party instead?ReplyCancel

  • Fleur - If I won I would take Audrey Hepburn because in my opinion she is the most stylish and beautiful woman that has ever existed. She made tea fashionable with Breakfast at Tiffany’s and the tea length dress. Perfect companion for high tea!ReplyCancel

  • Annaleis Topham - I’d come to Perth for that! I’d love to have the chance to talk to Robbie Williams. What a journey he has had and I could listen to that voice all day.ReplyCancel

  • Shelley - You know, I have really struggled with answering this question (hence I am doing it at the VERY last minute!)…… Who would I most like to have tea with? Someone famous? Jennifer Aniston? Angelina Jolie? Royalty? Duchess Kate (only so I could cuddle the baby). Someone from beyond – Princess Diana (whom I idolised as a child) or Eleanor Roosevelt? My sister, who I don’t see much of these days? My lovely friend Leanne, who now lives in the US, that I spent a few hours with recently and realised JUST how much I miss her! My beautiful friend Jess, posted to Cairns with the Navy (except daiquiris are more our style!). My friend Amy, who never seems to get time to stop for tea! Or maybe just you, Peggy Saas!ReplyCancel

  • sarahjane - I’d go to high tea with my sister who’s autistic. She would love it and she can be playful and have a tea party without anyone judging her for itReplyCancel

  • Kaylynn - That’s a quetc-witkid answer to a difficult questionReplyCancel
